Australian pop singer-songwriter GRAACE has a new EP titled Self-Preservation in the works. It will be a full showcase of her new sound.
The “Have Fun at Your Party” singer’s latest single, “Sentimental”, is everything we expect from her lyrically; it is delicate and heartfelt. The song came with a heartwarming video next to it.
“I wrote ‘Sentimental’ as a letter to my past self. I’ve spent the past two years hibernating from most people, moving on from my old life and growing up. I needed to break out of the mental jail that I put myself in: accept my flaws, not give up on myself, and permit myself to grow. For years I felt so lost in old memories, wishing I could go back to how things were, who I used to be and change the narratives. It detached me from reality. I had turned into a disassociating zombie. I had to fall a part into a crippling depression to feel my past, learn from the mistakes and allow myself to grow into anew person with no opinions of what I should be beside the mirror. Once I forgave myself and others for mistakes and our pasts, I grew closer with people and suddenly felt freedom for the first time in years. I’m always going to be a sentimental person, but the biggest thing I’ve learnt from my early 20’s is that memories are just lessons for the future,” reads GRAACE’s note about this affecting song.
