The Graes – ‘Deep’
The Graes are a married pop/folk duo hailing from North Carolina. Their latest single, ‘Deep’, is a folk-pop release with a whole lot of soul.
A textured and inviting acoustic guitar opens the release before the full band kicks in. Then, the driving and enigmatic vocals enter and instantly take the reins of the song.
Luscious harmonies ring out and fill the sonic spectrum with vivid colour. The catchy nature of the single is compelling, and The Graes hold the listener’s attention effortlessly.
In addition, we adore the backing instrumentation of ‘Deep’ too. The kick drum in the opening verse feels like the track’s heartbeat. The melodic bass and driving percussion adds layers of depth to the single.
The Graes say about ‘Deep’, “This new song is meant to help somebody. We may be married, but we write about it all. This song is meant for those of us who are so far deep in the depths of despair that we see no way out. ” They continue, “That darkness isn’t forever. There is always an outstretched hand waiting to pull you out of your rock bottom.”
The Graes cite their influences as coming from artists such as Johnnyswim, Charlie Puth, UsTheDuo, and Civil Wars. We can hear these muses coming through on ‘Deep’ but make no mistake; The Graes are making music all of their own!
We are so excited to see that this formidable duo have three new singles due for release this year.
One thing is for sure, ‘Deep’ is a release that will have you reaching for the repeat button. The Graes are an exciting duo making music that needs to be heard.
