Song of the Day: Vancouver duo Manila Grey releases the “Silver Skies” video
Our Song of the Day is the latest from budding Vancouver duo Manila Grey.
The lyric video for their new single “Silver Skies” has racked up over 250K since dropping on July 23, and today marks the release of the song’s official music video.
“Silver Skies” was produced by frequent Manila Grey collaborator azel north who has played a big role in helping Manila Grey shape their sound. He produced their entire EP debut, No Saints Under Palm Shade, and has worked with Soliven and Neeko on more music since. In a March 2018 interview with SOCAN Magazine, Neeko noted that azel “produces the beats, but he also pushes the sound design.”

Since first hitting the scene just a few years ago—although they began making music together in 2009—Manila Grey has quickly become one of the hottest acts in Vancouver, and is quickly taking the rest of the country by storm.
Manila Grey released a ton of new singles in 2018 and 2019 is already proving to be no different. “Silver Skies” is the fourth official track they’ve released in 2019 and follows “Raindance,” which is close to reaching half a million streams on Spotify, “Shinobi,” and “Lava Walk.”
In terms of the numbers on different platforms, “Silver Skies” is already the most successful single they’ve released in 2019, and the release of the video today should boost the exposure even further.
The duo releases high-end lyric videos in support of singles on a regular basis, but “Silver Skies” will be the first official video since they put out Matt Dennison-directed video for “Friends of Friends.” That release has been viewed over 260K times to date. Dennison is also responsible for directijng the new “Silver Skies” video.
