The tale of a life spiralling out of control is as beautiful as it is damning.
Keen to keep up the buzz he's created for himself, Isaac Gracie has swiftly released a new single, straight after announcing his highly anticipated self-titled full-length debut. This isn't just any single though, it's a re-working of the track that set the hype-train loose.
Set to feature on the full-length effort due out in April, 'Last Words', was originally released in 2016 on his 'Songs From My Bedroom' EP. Abandoning the raw and exposed character of his bedroom, this new version instead wraps itself in a polished sound - a smattering of lovely strings included.
Breathing new life into a track that already offered a glimpse into the mind of one of Britain's brightest songwriters, the tale of a life spiralling out of control is as beautiful as it is damning.
As he croons "how did I get here?" it becomes almost self-referential - especially when placed into context with his current career trajectory. After the blistering change of pace that was 'Death Of You & I', this re-working of 'Last Words' shows Isaac isn't a one-trick pony and is ready to melt hearts and take no prisoners. Steven Loftin
