GRACIE GRAY – ” Anna “

Posted: November 7, 2021 in MUSIC

LA singer, songwriter and bedroom producer Gracie Gray joined the Hand In Hive family in autumn 2021 with wholly infectious, dreamy indie number “alienlover”. The track is taken from her album anna, a record “about holding onto love for yourself through all of life’s changes. It looks at many huge shifts in a short period of time, and each track tries to make sense of how all relationships seem to fade, while promising to try in spite of it all.”

Hailing from Los Angeles, Gracie Gray first emerged back in 2019 with her self-released debut, Oregon In A Day. Two years on Gracie recently returned with the well-received single “Alienlover”, which received acclaim from the likes of GoldFlakePaint and The Line Of Best Fit, among others. The track was the first to be released from Gracie’s upcoming album, “anna”, which is out in February on her new label home, Hand In Hive. Ahead of that release today Gracie is premiering her new single, “dig”.

Discussing the track, Gracie has suggested dig is a song, “about loving someone because you believe in them, and tuning-out people that talk shit“. She recalls that it came from a time of feeling let down and needing to speak up for herself, “This song is it for me. It is the feeling that even one moment of holiness with someone else can cover a multitude of unanswered questions”. Musically, dig is a record of muted majesty, as what sounds like a Marimba emerges from the omnipresent buzz of synth, alongside layers of spectral vocals and rich tumbles of bassy-guitar. There’s a certain poignancy to Gracie’s words, as she stitches memories into place with the reality of the present, and ultimately reaches only the inconclusive, with the repeated closing line, “we’re spinning just a little bit”. A sparkling further example of just how exciting anna is shaping up to be, we’re two months away from 2022, yet Gracie Gray is already shaping up to be one of the year’s break-out stars.

“Dig” the new song by Gracie Gray from the album ‘anna’, out February 4th on Hand In Hive.
