The captivating contradictions at the heart of Grace’s music are given free rein on ‘Pluto’ the dramatic single from the Perth, Australia born musician.
Anchored by a barely-there beat, the song – produced by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek – sees Grace swinging from restrained menace to impassioned cry. The chorus erupts amidst pulsing synths and stuttering drums. Despite citing her biggest challenge as holding too much inside, Grace’s lyrics are intensely personal and introspective. Her voice resonates with gripping intimacy.
It’s a first look at the music R.W. Grace (who previously released music as Grace Woodroofe) has been making with Sitek, Sam Spiegel (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and Dann Hume (Alpine) as she prepares to unleash her sound on the world.
Grace recently supported alt-j on the band’s headline tour of Australia during October.
