Jessie Grace: Livingroom Legend – single review



Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jessie Grace releases her first new observe in 8 years and it’s completely gorgeous. Andy Brown provides Livingroom Legend a spin for Louder Than Battle.

Cardiff-based artist Jessie Grace is a brand new identify to this author but she launched her debut album, Asleep On The Good Foot, manner again in 2009. She first appeared on the Louder Than Battle radar in 2015 as one-half of the Angelo-Swedish duo Superhand. Our author Paul Scott-Bates gave the album American Enamel a near-perfect rating and described it as “a nice beast which on many event needs to be heard to be believed.” Give it a spin, it’s a potent mixture of atmospheric rock and digital inclinations. Within the duo, she adopted the pseudonym Inga Carlström but as Jessie Grace, she would go on to launch an EP referred to as My World Is Chilly. Listening to those songs, it’s crystal clear that Grace is an idiosyncratic and extremely achieved artist. It will be eight years till she launched one other tune, by which level I used to be nicely overdue an introduction.

That brings us somewhat neatly to the superb Livingroom Legend. The observe is a superbly organized ballad with piano, drums, bass, guitar, synths and delicate strings. Grace’s voice stays the soulful jewel within the crown because it guides us via the highly effective, catchy and elegantly emotive terrain. The tune issues the paradoxically named livingroom legend, a narcissistic companion liable to self-delusion, management and gaslighting. It’s additionally concerning the different individual making an attempt to interrupt freed from that toxicity. The intestine punch comes when Grace delivers the ultimate line, “There’s nothing left to say…I’ll see you subsequent Tuesday.” Clearly, there’s a little bit of a double that means there. It’s the type of tune that lingers in your unconscious lengthy after it’s completed. Livingroom Legend is a robust piece of music that addresses a troublesome topic with the empathy and ability of a very gifted songwriter.

Extra new songs are on the horizon too as Grace has been recording materials on the Tic Classic Room in Vienna with assistance from a crew led by producer Filippo Gaetani. Maintain these ears peeled!
