Early reviews for Grayshot's new album Borders:
"lush warmth and gentle '80s pop sensibility... in an atmosphere that works in both those late-night magic moments as well as the hazy morning afterglow"
Grayshot was able to create an album that stirs the sounds of The Blue Nile, Doves, Aqualung, and Keane.

"In short, this is a fine and consistent piece of work from Grayshot"
Grayshot is made up of brothers Aaron and Christian Ankrum along with drummer Reese Kling. This alternative pop band has been busy steadily crisscrossing the US and parts of the UK/Europe as well as writing and recording material (their first full length album Stay/Go was self-produced) in their Minneapolis studio. Their songs are a rare hybrid of indie depth & heart with a large-audience ready sound that has seen over 40 placements, notably Emmy winning Brooklyn Nine Nine, UK feature film ‘Love Me Do’ and CBS College Football.
Having honed their live sound while supporting international bands The Boxer Rebellion and Citizens! on their respective US tours, as well as Switchfoot and Empires, Grayshot has become a formidable live band that consistently wins over new fans and delivers for returning audiences.
After two years of hard work the band is ready to release their second studio album “Borders” on April 1st. With the additional production of Ben West (Jr. Jr., P!NK, Matt Nathanson) and mastering by Huntley Miller (Tallest Man on Earth, Poliça) Grayshot "was able to create an album that stirs the sounds of The Blue Nile, Doves, Aqualung, and Keane."
