Skylar Grey CMLIX :: ‘Moving Mountains’ – Reviews and Buzz

Now 10 days since the release (April 1) of Ms. Grey‘s latest song Moving Mountains (which she has stated as being one of her favourite songs that she’s written thus far), many positive reviews of the track and its accompanying visual have been rolling in!

Check out several excerpts from said reviews below, and click the article title links to read each piece in full.

Grey’s Riveting New Single | Popdust ::
“….Grey mines her folk roots on her brand new song Moving Mountains. Following last year’s Cannonball (featuring X Ambassadors), the new cut is ripped from the same sonic fabric and features minimal instruments and an unfettered vocal. When given such grounded lyrics and soul-shaking emotion, Grey shines the most….”

Grey Presents the Video for “Moving Mountains” | MusicShaker ::
“….after releasing the song “Cannonball” with X Ambassadors, she returns with “Moving Mountains”, a beautiful ballad. ….The music video for “Moving Mountains” is worthy of film credits…. We see mountains and snowy landscapes. Dip one last time in the heart of winter before moving to Spring….”

“Moving Mountains” – *Tibs Fav. | Gowhere Hip Hop ::
“….it’s flat out a beautiful song and visual combo as Skylar first gets introspective lyrically. ….I instantly caught myself reflecting at my life which doesn’t just happen when you listen to music that’s even aimed to do just this. Not sure if that’s Skylar’s intent because above all, “Moving Mountains” just feels like a strong, authentic, and personal release.

The visuals take the song to another level too as Skylar Grey literally moves up the mountains, amidst some deep, clean white snow. They smartly grab some incredible wide, overhanging shots that showcase the true beauty of nature. These shots are (also smartly) contrasted with Skylar playing the guitar in front of a fireplace and that’s the perfect mood and setting for this song too. Watch….you’ll be in from the very first chords like I was….”

Moving Mountains | auspOp ::
“….the thing we like most about ‘Moving Mountains’ is that it peels away all of the expensive production and electronic trickery of the past, and exposes Skylar’s strengths as both a performer and songwriter….”

New Single | Magic Music Magazine ::
“….“Moving Mountains” is a very impressive, touchy ballad….”

Moving Mountains by Skylar Grey | Beebee ::
“….Grey is here to make you feel nostalgic for winter, sitting by the fire and hot steamy nights.

….It is a great guitar ballad with a haunting melody. ….It is a song that touches themes like ambition, sacrifice, love, desperation and self-esteem.

….Take a look at the stunning visuals and enjoy the beautiful ballad….”

10 Best New Songs of the Week | Celebuzz ::
“….a softer and more folky Skylar Grey is featured on her new song “Moving Mountains. The track features minimal instruments and bare vocals which showcase Grey at her very best….”

#MusicMonday | PopWrapped ::
“….taking a step back from the endless pressure to prove herself after her massive success writing for the likes of Eminem and Rihanna in recent years, “Moving Mountains” is a heartfelt effort to allow nature to drive her passions. Grey’s vocals resonate with warmth over the simple instrumentation, and you can almost feel the pressure of reality fading away as the winds drive her to new heights….”

Grey Put Things Into Perspective | Jon ALi Blog ::
“….feeling stressed? Overworked? Oversexed? Let Skylar Grey put things into perspective for you.

….the talented singer-songwriter returns to us with “Moving Mountains, a somber guitar-driven ballad about “finding your happiness” through all the craziness in your life.

….It’s one of those songs I think any of us hard-working, career-driven folks can relate to. Like Skylar, I’m sure many or your aspirations in life are to be heard and successful but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your happiness – It’s okay to just take a break y’all….”

Skylar Grey CMLVIII :: Interview w/ Piet Levy – The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 7-APR-2016

“….“I’ve lived in all these different states and worked in other cities, but Wisconsin will always be with me.”….”

In preparation for her live show with Atlas Genius this coming Saturday (April 9) at The Rave in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Ms. Grey provided an interview to Piet Levy of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

In this interview she discusses finding happiness (including how that relates to her new song Moving Mountains), the production on her upcoming album, and her love for Wisconsin.

Check out an excerpt below, and click the Journal Sentinel logo beneath to read the feature in its entirety!

Skylar Grey Interview | Journal Sentinel ::
“….often it’s Grey’s bruised emotions, expressed through dark lyrics, that have been her signature. Here, though, she’s letting go of the pain. The cleansing is cathartic and compelling.

“Mountains” is expected to be on Grey’s next album, anticipated this year, which she said is 95% done. That was one of her other recent epiphanies, too, that she needed to be picky about her collaborations and just work on music she’s passionate about.

She paired up with Alex da Kid again, who produced “Lie” and Grey’s last album, and Mike Elizondo, whose songwriting and production credits cover everyone from Eminem to Fiona Apple to Maroon 5.

Grey said she writes songs after receiving beats producers send her. But this time, “we got to work together in the studio and would just jam out on the music and basically develop beats from scratch. It was refreshing to not be inside a computer the whole time.”

S1, who produced Kanye West’s “Power” and Beyoncé’s “Best Thing I Never Had, also worked on two of Grey’s favorite tracks on her next album, “Lemonade” and “Picture Perfect. Eminem produced a couple songs as well.

On the Atlas Genius tour, Grey is largely introducing new songs. “I’m kind of feeling it out,” she said. “I think that the best way to tell if a song’s good is from the reaction.”

On Saturday, she’s guaranteed to get a good reaction from her Wisconsin family and friends in the crowd for her first Milwaukee concert in three years.

“I’m so excited,” Grey said. “It’s nice to stay in touch with your roots.”….”
