Kate Gratson offers her latest track, ‘Falling Apart’, from her forthcoming EP, ‘The Girl You Knew’.
The foundation of the song is built on a sample she creates manipulating layers of vocal harmonies and soothing thrusts of emotive story telling. Less is more in terms of the production and vocal delivery in the verses. She throws that attitude away in time for the chorus, piling layers or vocals and synths on top of each other and allowing the drums to take over.
‘Falling Apart’ is from the point of view of the one caught unaware.
Detailing the warning signs overlooked, and the painful reminders of the person who walked away: “I missed the warning signs you held up… Now every time I hear a voice like yours that’s near / Can’t help but lose my breath I’ll admit I can’t catch it.”
