Grey Will Fade (Double Dragon Music)
By: Alex Steininger
Ash's guitarist Charlotte Hatherley, during some downtime from Ash, recorded her debut solo album, Grey Will Fade. Released only in Europe, and only available in the U.S. as an import, it's a shame because Grey Will Fade isn't too far from Ash, and Ash fans will instantly like the guitar-laden pop sound. Though, where Ash rocks out, Hatherley keeps her solo album melodic and poppy, playing more to the power-pop side of things than the hard rock that Ash sometimes dwells in. What Grey Will Fade does a great job of is establishing Hatherley as a songwriter on her own right, able of crafting good modern rock/guitar-pop that would make fans of Letters To Cleo instantly latch on. Yes, it's poppy, rocking, and sweet. Hatherley creates solid melodic guitar rock. I'll give it an A-.
