London’s Grace Solero releases new track ‘Love and Addiction’
“Love and Addiction is a powerful representation of love in all forms and across all genres. It’s an intense journey bridging unruly passion and the yearning for clarity and stability.”Grace Solero
London alternative rock artist Grace Solero presents the single ‘Love and Addiction’ along with music video (below) – a power-packed labour of love that is raw, grungy, dreamy and atmospheric all at the same time. ‘Love and Addiction’ also appears on the band’s new ‘Metamorphosis’ album, mixed by Chris Brown(Radiohead, Muse, Ride, INXS, Gary Moore) and mastered byAndy ‘Hippy’ Baldwin (The Who, Interpol, Oasis, Blur, UB40) at London’s Metropolis Studio.
“When I came up with the first few lines of the melody and a few lyrics of the verse it was clear enough that a dark broody Pandora’s box had been opened. I felt like a surge of thick honey was running through my throat.”Grace Solero
High energy and highly dynamic, Solero’s mercurial voice is of astounding range and a powerful stage presence. Conveying deep emotions with alternating darkness and light, her songwriting shies away from the ordinary. Sonically, apart from their guitar-based sound, the band uses less conventional instruments, such as the cello, Hammond B3 organ, psaltery and even singing bowls.
Not long ago, the band previewed the title track ‘Metamorphosis’ on the trail of super-charged melodic singles ‘Orange Sky’, ‘Awake’ and ‘Lucid Dream’, the latter of which has recently gained support via BBC 6 Music.
Earlier albums ‘New Moon’ (2009), ‘Hundred Years Apart’ (2013) and ‘Awake’ (2018) garnered support from BBC Radio 6, XFM, BBC London, and magazines such as Classic Rock, Guitar Techniques, Powerplay Magazine, Sonic Shocks, and Sonic Cathedral.
Solero’s performances are highly dynamic and energetic, both sonically and visually. They’ve performed everywhere from intimate clubs to large stages in Europe, USA and Canada, supporting the likes of Motorhead’s Phil Campbell, Alan Merrill (famed songwriter of the Joan Jett hit ‘I Love Rock ’n’ Roll’), Bernie Torme and Arthur Brown.
Grace collaborates on The Twilight Zone, a new project with Dan Beaulaurier and legendary pedal steel player BJ Cole (Elton John, Cat Stevens, Bjork, R.E.M). She also co-writes and performs with The Vibrators’ Knox and Mariangela Demurtas (Tristania), and has performed alongside Slade’s Noddy Holder, co-starring in a musical production of Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’ at London’s Union Chapel.
The ‘Metamorphosis’ LP is out now and is available on CD from the artist’s store or digitally via Bandcamp, Spotify and Apple Music.
