Darker Shade Of Gray

Album: Love Is Calling (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • Written by guitarist Thorn St. Germain, the first song from the band's debut release has an obvious sexual theme. In an interview through his management, he said: "What do you think it's about? Perhaps it's meaning is personal to the listener? It has an underlying component of erotic exploration, clearly. I didn't see the two films however."

    The two films alluded to are Fifty Shades Of Grey and Fifty Shades Darker, both with English spelling. Based on an erotic novel, the first film drew controversy. It is well known that women prefer erotic fiction while men prefer something more visual, and rock stars prefer the real thing! >>
