Toronto-based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist GRAE brings forth a warm and fuzzy display of guitar-driven pop with her long awaited debut album ‘Whiplash’, an eleven-track release filled with buzzing instrumentation and dreamy melodies that deliver a dreamy soundscape filled with a glowing presence throughout.
Featuring previous releases ‘Boxes’, ‘Forget You’ and ‘Room in the Desert’, GRAE utilises the polished production on offer to create plenty of space and enchantment for her captivating vocals to stand tall in the middle of the mix and command your attention in each and every offering available. Whilst doing so, GRAE works in cohesion with the punchy drums, warm guitars and smooth bass on offer to provide a soundscape filled with sunshine and lusciousness.
’Whiplash’ was born during a time of confusion and indecisiveness. Falling in and out of love with people I thought would be in my life forever but found myself desperately trying to forget. Did I love them, hate them, want to remember them or forget them? I was drowning in the nostalgia of a past I romanticised while coming to terms with the truth of it all. The album is so back and forth in emotion, but so am I. That’s how the title ‘Whiplash’ came to be. When you think you understand where I’m going with something, the mood changes and everything is back at square one. It’s an album filled with so much self-reflection, love, heartbreak, and discovery. Just like anything I write, it was really therapeutic for me to get these feelings out. I’m looking forward to the release, as creating an album has always been my goal, and finally putting one out there is really exciting.” – GRAE
