“You do something to me…”
Every so often a voice comes along that leaves you utterly entranced and completely hypnotized. Today, that captivating voice belongs to rising Stockholm-based singer/songwriter Grant, whose new single “Catcher In The Rye” is now out worldwide.
Less than a month out from her debut London live show, supporting Tove Styrke at The Borderline on June 13,“Catcher In The Rye” comes along and hooks you instantaneously with its buoyant bassline and infectious melody. The song is taken from her forthcoming debut album In Bloom which is set for worldwide release on June 1st.
Set against a backdrop of sumptuously textured alt-pop, her debut LP In Bloom finds this rising artist wholly embodying whatever mood she’s conjuring: love-struck, vengeful, heavy-hearted, triumphant, all the while maintaining a deliberate vulnerability and willful sensitivity that speaks to the quiet power in softness.
Each song is rooted in raw emotion, as the album demonstrates a poet’s attention to detail and knack for unexpected turn-of-phrase, whether the mood is ecstatic or stormy, outrageous or fragile, Grant endlessly proves her skill at sculpting melodies and lyrics as exquisite as a tune from some centuries-old music box.
Her latest single release, “Catcher In The Rye” serves as the follow up to Grant’s sublimely devastating debut single, “Waterline” which arrived last fall and quickly earned acclaim for its elegant intensity and candid depiction of choosing survival over suicide. “When I wrote that song I’d been feeling bad for a long time, and I realized I had to make a choice,” says Grant. “I decided that even though I was probably going to feel bad many more times in my life, I wasn’t going to let it drown me – I was going to choose to live.”
