Ah Grey Street, once a shady strip home to a shoe store, the council building and not much else, now a thriving metropolis for the tiniest fisherman beanies and the baggiest pants. Here’s a little playlist designed to make you feel like your outfit is being judged by someone wearing Docs and jeans they bought for $199 on Instagram without having to leave your home.
Day ’N’ Nite (Nightmare) – Kid Cudi
Legend has it if you mention Kid Cudi at the counter, at least three of the staff members at Recycle Boutique will give you a discount.
Dionne – The Japanese House (ft. Justin Vernon)
I actually did hear this at a cafe on Grey St. the other day so my shitpost is grounded in fact.
pink skies – LANY
Shout out to the colour palette at Duck Island.
Nikes – Frank Ocean
Nothing like a bit of subtle musical product placement to get you in the mood for consumerism.
Vampire – Dominic Fike
I only showed up to tell you that everyone on this street is a vampire.
Gooey – Glass Animals
Straight up *vibey* my guy uh-huh, suh.
Borderline – Tame Impala
Let’s be real I could’ve put any Tame song in here. They may as well play it through an airhorn down the whole street.
Paris – The 1975
I’d love to go to Paris again too, but we’re here, so may as well buy a deconstructed salad for $50.
Prom Queen – Beach Bunny
Look maybe I’m just salty because they’re way more stylish than I’ll ever be.
Tiny Dancer – Elton John
A WILDCARD! You walk into the Sally’s to find something for $2 that you can resell on your tax-free vintage ‘small business’ for a 600% profit with no moral conscious and this song is playing xx
Bags – Clairo
If Clairo were a Hamiltonian she would definitely scoop your ice cream and take her jars to Bin Inn to bulk buy lentils (you should really get on that, they’ll give you a 5% discount if you bring your own reusables).
