Written about the Bataclan attacks last November, ‘No Star’ sounds like a proper protest song. Angry, confused, but strong too. It’s taken from Toronto act Greys’ new album Outer Heaven, released by Carpark and Buzz Records on April 22.

Singer Shehzaad Jiwani had this to say about the track, courtesy of Noisey:

“The song was written in the wake of not only the shootings in Paris at Bataclan on November 13th 2015, but also the reactions it elicited in people. On one side, you had people burning down mosques and acting violently towards anyone who looked remotely Muslim. On the other, you had people speaking on behalf of the victims and effectively telling them how they should feel about such atrocities. It’s a song about not knowing where you fit in as a person of colour who was raised in a predominantly white community, not identifying completely with either side. It’s about not having a voice, but moreover not knowing where or when or how to speak regardless. It’s about wanting someone to understand and relate to you, but most importantly, letting you speak for yourself.”
