Exceptionally prolific at just 18 years old, Grace Amos has today announced her latest single NOTHING TO SAY, a deeply relatable track about a person that talks a LOT…but really has nothing to say at all. The new track follows the explosive Kiss You Til I’m Sober, Grace’s most successful track to date with over 140,000 streams on Spotify alone. Grace has also announced her debut EP ALL ABT U, set for release on September 2, ahead of her performance at Valleyways Festival alongside triple j faves The Rubens and Middle Kids on September 10.
NOTHING TO SAY is playful, youthful, confident, and decidedly edgy — everything Grace Amos encapsulates as an artist. It’s an irresistible rock track, inspired by Grace’s musical heroes Alanis Morrisette and Miley Cyrus. Distorted guitars chug alongside a pulsing beat, while Grace’s clear, assertive vocal takes centre stage. It’s her most mature offering yet, and sets the course for Grace’s upcoming EP; fans can expect more fire from this exciting young artist very, very soon.
Speaking on the inspiration behind NOTHING TO SAY, Grace reflects, “The song was originally about someone I knew who thought they knew everything, always had to share their opinion and fill the silence but ultimately, they really had ‘nothing to say’. When working on the song 6 months after the original demo I realised I had this one person on my mind a bit and needed to vent! The lyrics are about someone who is all talk and no game basically — it’s all a bit of fun really.”
NOTHING TO SAY is just a taste of what is to come with the release of Grace’s debut EP ALL ABT U, scheduled to drop on September 2. Each single Grace has dropped this year has been building to the EP, and hinting at the rocky new direction of her sound. Previous single Kiss You Til I’m Sober describes the hot frustration and anticipation of the seconds before a romantic catalyst and holds a similar sense of confidence as NOTHING TO SAY. Hinting at what’s to come on the EP, Grace says, “My forthcoming debut EP has this amazing consistency in sound for all the tracks that I’ve recorded so far. It’s deliberate, and distinct and it’s uniquely me. I want people to hear my music and immediately know it’s my sound.”
ALL ABT U is a fully-formed vision, created by an artist completely in control of her sound. As Grace prepares for her festival debut in September, it’s clear that this is all just the beginning for this incredible young artist.
