In the mood for some magic? Well, new UK newcomer Griff, has it! Following the steps of Florence and the Machine, Adele, and Sam Smith, she snatched the BRIT Awards Rising Star trophy, beating other incredible artists. Griff will be part of the ceremony which will take place May 11th.
New music on the way!
Not only did we get the news of her award win, but Griff also announced that she will gift us her first mixtape! Titled One Foot In Front Of The Other, the singer-songwriter fell out of boredom and wrote some good vibes tunes during the lockdown. The compilation is due for release on June 11th. We totally can’t wait!
An inspiring time for change
Did you know that only two percent of the producing staff in the music industry are women? That’s one of the reasons why Griff sat down in her home, recorded, and self-produced her material that’s coming to our ears at the beginning of the summer. The collection of seven songs may have caused lots of challenges while recording and mixing, but it’s going to be an honest piece of music, embodying the London singer’s true self. Women stand up and rise! Be ready for One Foot In Front Of The Other to shine!
A big black hole
“There’s a big black hole where my heart used to be and I’ve tried my best to fill it up with things I don’t need,” sings Griff with cracked emotions and angelic tones on ‘Black Hole.’ As the song addresses the struggles within life as a teenager such as mental health and young love, Griff takes on the difficult topics beautifully. She keeps her head up despite the trials and tribulations as she dives into that melodic tropical sound. With grooves amidst electronic synths, she’s hinting some curiosity with the fun and sunny-side upbeats!
Already hitting the UK Top 10 with her single ‘Black Hole’, the release of the mixtape in June will see tales of the modern teenage life explained in Griff’s unique style. Exploring with creativity, the seven-song collage will bring young love, family relationships, struggles and friendship stories to life. If you wish to have a taste of it, we recommend you watch her stunning set at Tate Gallery here. While you are at it, you can get superb designed shirts as well as happy pieces of vinyl and cassettes, full of old-school vibes!
