Aussie artist GRAACE has veered away from her popular sad-girl-pop sound for her most recent single release 'You Do You'.
She has delivered a new dynamic with the no-holds-barred single with a bold and danceable sound. Cut from the same cloth as artists such as Dua Lipa and King Princess, GRAACE paves her way in the pop world with sensational songwriting talent and disco-inspired production. With a sense of assuredness and confidence, GRAACE finds her truth and doesn't care what anyone has to say about it.
"'You Do You' is written about the honeymoon phase of meeting someone. Personally, I’m somebody who doesn’t have a type and falls for personalities rather than looks or gender, it pulls me in like crazy when somebody has this certain energy about them. Writing the chorus I was picturing that funny stage when there’s a thin line in the beginning of a relationship where you want to give that person everything right there and then but know you need to play it a little bit cool or they’ll think your weird and clingy haha. But I think that bit of mystery is fun. Embracing being a woman is something that has taken time for me but writing 'You Do You' felt like me in my rawest form being vulnerable and strong. And f%^king owning the power we have."
The single is accompanied by a video which pays homage to GRAACE's lifelong love of skateboarding.
Coming down one Christmas in her early teens to find a guitar, microphone and amp under the tree, gifted to her by her father, Grace Pitts’ life’s work began without her even truly realising it. GRAACE was catapulted as an artist to watch when the single 'Numb' - a track she co-wrote with Hyaden James, hit platinum and received 66 million streams.
The rising 22-year old artist has seen a slew of success over the past few years, garnering critical acclaim from influential tastemakers and several New Music Friday placements. She has a magical way of taking her brash honesty and turning it into heartbreaking and healing tunes. The songstress relays her very real experiences from heartbreak to heart-breaker so gracefully.
