SINGLE REVIEW: Graace – Kissing Boys
You may recognise GRAACE’s voice from her catchy Hayden James collaboration “Numb” but the Sydney singer-songwriter has decided to reintroduce herself with a new musical project and her debut single is one that is going to get you talking. “Kissing Boys” is that euphoric indie-pop track that will have you dancing like no one is watching and feeling all the feels at once. The song begins with a simple piano and drum beat that slowly adds some synths and a guitar baseline which brings a different texture to the track. It has a very euphoric feel to it which is deceiving because this heartbreak track looks at a break up and trying to move on but not being able to let go. “But I’ve been kissing boys, kissing boys. And I’ve been treating them like toys, them like toys. When all I really want is you, I close my eyes to fool myself”. The song sonically grows and evolves over the 3 minute duration to create a chilled pop moment. Think Broods meets Tove Styrke with a real Triple J edge and a mainstream pop radio polish that could see this song be her mainstream breakthrough hit. So yeah, this is a VERY memorable debut.
