GRAACE has been serving up gems ever since her debut. With her EP, ‘SELF SABOTAGE’ in 2018, the ‘grace’ of her ambience and pop goodness was true, from the get-go. Her audience has known this, and has loved her offerings, from earphone to now, dancefloor.
Now with single ‘You Do You’, GRAACE veers from her popular sad-girl-pop sound for this bold, danceable track.
GRAACE’s gem vocals, alternatively imbued with twists and turns of the production, shows another angle to the angelic presentations of her past singles. Bold and also refined, the direction of ‘You Do You’ is cut and clear, yet, it reserves the same kind of thoughtfulness and revelry, GRAACE has been known for.
Said GRAACE: “‘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,” explains GRAACE. 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 comes alongside the accompanying video which pays homage to GRAACE’s lifelong love of skateboarding.
