Fade To Black is a track from GRAE’s debut EP New Girl and it sounds amazing. I really like the dynamic melodies. Besides, GRAE’s vocal performance is sublime, she has a very powerful voice. Furthermore, the lyrics are very meaningful!
The single is accompanied by a personal music video. On the video, GRAE notes: “Fade to Black was written from the perspective of me as a child. Growing up with a parent who was absolutely beautiful, talented, free spirited, smart and so extremely loving and caring, but watching alcohol addiction take over her life. This song is my real emotion, it describes real things that happened within that time and it was definitely difficult to write and record. I hope Fade To Black can help those in similar situations feel less alone. When I was a child I felt like no one understood the things I was going through, but I want anyone who is going through it to know that I understand. I loved my mom so much, she always told me to create my life, follow my dreams. She was such a beautiful person. She just suffered, she had demons she didn’t deserve. Fade To Black is the result of that time in my life, and funny enough, it’s my favourite song on the EP because it’s so real.”
