New Music Video: An Ordinary Life – Grace Lightman

Describing her sound as one part Abba and two parts Twin Peaks, GRACE LIGHTMAN unveiled a rather earthy video for latest single, ‘An Ordinary Life’.

Speaking of her alt-soul offering, Grace says: “An Ordinary Life is a love song to the human race, from the perspective of the Silver Eater. It’s bittersweet as it comes from a place of awareness that she will never be able to have the ordinary life she wants, almost like an unrequited love.

This is one of the more personal songs on the record, capturing the alienation in a wistful way that I hope people can relate to. In our moments of vulnerability we do just wish we could fit in, even if we know we shouldn’t try to”

Signed to London based indie label, Handsome Dad Records (home to the likes of Inc. No World, Babeheaven etc), Grace has received support from 6Music and Radio One with previous single, ‘Zero Impact’.

Song of the Day: Platinum & Gold – Basheba

After experimenting in the studio with the hotly tipped producer, XVR BLCK, BASHEBA returns with new material inspired by the sounds of 90s RnB and contemporary bass. The sublime Platinum & Gold, is the first release taken off her latest E.P Axiom Part 2, out now.

Known for combining breakbeat and jungle rhythm in her previous work, Platinum & Gold marks an evolution in sound for the young artist. Her lyrics come straight from the heart and the dark soulful vocal delivery always stands out in her music, and it’s this, which she has been able to translate effortlessly to other areas, such as alt pop and R&B with the project.

BASHEBA‘s last track Don’t Go, garnered support across the board from tastemakers at 1Xtra, BBC Introducing and 6music and online by SBTV, Complex, 405, Fred Perry and MOBO Unsung and her latest project is another example of why she is one to watch – check it out!
