NEW TUNES: Grace Turner releases reflective single Half Light

Hot on the heels of the brilliant tracks Easy I Fall and Dead Or Alive, Newcastle’s Grace Turner has given us another beguiling taste of her soon-to-be-released EP Half Truths.

The single, Half Light is a sparse, introspective slow burner that wears its emotional heart well and truly on its sleeve.

Grace said that the song was entirely written in her head during a family walk through the Hunter Region Botanic Gardens and focuses on the complex nature of each and every one of us.

She added that the track: traverses the dualities we have within ourselves and the many potentially conflicting parts of the personalities we live with.”

“It also explores the world of half-truths we live within as a society, I am constantly questioning the world around me and how I fit into it and what makes me who I am.”

The track was recorded over a number of sessions kicking off at Melbourne’s Sound Park Studios with Timothy Harvey (Lisa Mitchell, Ella Hooper) before moving to arguably the opposite end of the spectrum – a tractor shed in Cessnock, supplied by Newy legends RAAVE TAPES.

This time last year Grace had just wrapped her first international shows in the USA at Austin’s SXSW Festival following a raft of accolades back home including nabbing a triple j Unearthed feature artist spot and hitting number 24 in Spotify US’ Viral 50 Playlist. 

Grace also kept busy on the live front, securing numerous supporting spots with the likes of Alex The Astronaut, Lucy Dacus, Phil Jamieson, City Calm Down, Kingswood, and Ali Barter as well as making appearances at Grow Your Own Festival and Groovin The Moo before going into hibernation to finish the EP. 

Half Light is also a pretty good sign that Grace’s debut seven-track EP Half Truths which is set to drop on Friday 7 August will be one to write home about!
