Toronto based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist GRAE released a brand new single “Forget You,” a sneak peek off her debut LP Whiplash scheduled to be out on April 15th.
“Forget You” is a new-wave pop track crafted with spacious vocals, buoyant production, and deeply personal lyrics. GRAE shares her own experiences about a romantic relationship that no longer serves her best interest, and she does it in the most poetic and mystic way. The sentimental new effort was produced by her long-time collaborator Connor Seidel and co-written with Willa Milner.
GRAE shares this about the song:“Forget You” was written when I finally decided to let go of a relationship I romanticized. This person no longer served me, yet I still found myself caught up in the nostalgia of it all, looking back on our time spent together with rose-coloured glasses. Whenever I tried to move on, I still thought about them. We always found our way back to each other and it never ended well. They weren’t good for me and had bad habits. I made their issues my own, tried to fix them, tried to be their savior. They held me back from pursuing new relationships and exploring new things. This song was therapeutic and emotional for me to write. A release of all these emotions I had been feeling for years. I felt sad writing it because as much as I knew I had to let them go, a part of me didn’t want to, but this song is goodbye to them and our failed attempt at love.
The intimate, soothing, yet uplifting pop anthem “Forget You” by GRAE is undoubtedly a creative force to be reckoned with. Each of GRAE’s new releases surpassing the previous ones in terms of quality, vibe and vision, so make sure you check out the track!
