This is the slightly dark Rock of John Perrin and frontman Gray, and don’t be fooled by this sudden explosion, they have been working on this project since 2017.

27 Club”, which is backed by “Sunday Mourning”, take a somewhat depressing theme of dying young and famous and makes it so listenable and memorable. It is a take on the rockstar lifestyle that just may make Gray just that.
