"It's not uncommon for young bands to have wide-screen ambitions, but it's far more rare for a band to project an accomplished, melodic, and sweeping cinematic vision on their first album." - CITY PAGES (VILLAGE VOICE) - Village Voice


"The aptly named quartet sounds tailor-made for a shadowy, black-and-white art-house film soundtrack. Its dark Anglopop veers from Coldplay-like drama to Radiohead 'Bends'-era storminess." - STAR TRIBUNE - Star Tribune



"Soaring anglophile rock n' roll, equal parts rainy-day Manchester and snow-day Minneapolis in feel. If your listening diet lacks in grandeur, Greycoats are the perfect musical multi-vitamin." - TWIN CITIES METRO (MAGAZINE) - METRO Magazine


"The album's moodiness and overall melancholy aren't products of classic Douglas Sirk films from the 1950s, but rather a more abstract from of transcendentalism (recall Henry David Thoreau) in a cinematic context. Or if that doesn't tickle your fancy, think of a more consistently mellow Mute Math or a more ballad-filled Keane."-Tan Man, Dorks & Losers - Dorks & Losers


To weave almost seamlessly playful pop rock with ambitious art rock takes gusto as well as brains. The outcome is a eleven track, forty-eight minute symphonic work of art called “Setting Fire To The Great Unknown.” It’s hard to deny that this is at least something truly special. - Kata Rokkar

Bio

.... ...the first step in rescuing a drowning victim is to bring the victim's mouth and nose above the water surface. for further treatment it is advisable to remove the victim from the water. conscious victims may panic and thus hinder rescue efforts. often, a victim will cling to the rescuer and try to pull themselves out of the water, submerging the rescuer in the process. to avoid this, it is recommended that the rescuer approach the panicking victim with a buoyant object, or from behind, twisting the victim's arm on the back to restrict movement. if the victim pushes the rescuer under water, the rescuer should dive downwards to escape the victim... ...drowning victims should be treated even if they have been submerged for a long time. the rule "no patient should be pronounced dead until warm and dead" applies. children in particular have a good chance of survival in water for up to three minutes, or ten minutes in cold water. submersion in cold water can slow the metabolism drastically. there are rare but documented cases of survivable submersion for extreme lengths of time. in one case a child survived drowning after being submerged in cold water for seventy minutes. in another, an eighteen-year-old man survived thirty-eight minutes under water. this is known as cold water drowning...
