Adrift is the third album from Minneapolis quartet, Greycoats. It continues the historical and mythological narrative of their previous releases: the moody, dystopian WWI imagery of Setting Fire to the Great Unknown (2008) and the hubris and pomp of the 1939 World’s Fair on World of Tomorrow (2013). Adrift takes the listener from the starting line of the space race to the launching of the Voyager probes. One could say the band beat their guitars into synthesizers, or one could simply say they surrendered to the night.
Their lunar voyage finds hunters and wanderers chasing messianic visions beyond the boundaries of certainty—where envy, confusion and madness await.
Greycoats is universally acclaimed as one of America's greatest living bands. Their songs have always been driven by pathos and haunted by transcendence, becoming living symbols of our times.
