After making a strong debut for herself in early 2021, Emmeline Gracie returns with the delicately gripping single “Lights Out”, released on November 26ᵗʰ.
Brought up in a small town in West Germany, Dublin based singer-songwriter and Grafton Street busker Emmeline Gracie creates music with a delicate balance between Indie-Folk and Pop.
“Lights Out” marks the follow-up to Gracie’s well received debut release “A Million Times” with rocketing over 100.000 streams since its release in May.
Her musical debut was greatly supported by local and international radio such as RTE Radio 1, Islington Radio, Radio 382 as well as Heart Of Indie Radio.
As featured on music publications such as “Soundtrack of My Life”, Gracie’s vulnerable vocal delivery and songwriting style make her stand out among the Pop crowd. With a production that seeks to combine subtle pop electronica with warm acoustic details, the captivating new single tells stories of self-renewal and reclaiming creative space for herself.
“When what you had is suddenly gone; It isn’t enough to turn the lights out / Lately I’ve been hitting dead ends; Going where it hurts”
Ending both a long term relationship and combating inner conflict of self-identification were the driving forces to “Lights Out”. The entrancing ballad evokes a sense of closing old chapters, as inspired by a self-reflective six week hike through the French province.
The 20 year old’s writing typically draws inspiration from the natural world; landscapes sparked by her Dominican-Italian roots. Emmeline Gracie’s music in the making touches on subjects of human intimacy - love and loss, and often brings contemporary Indie and Folkartists like Birdy, Mogli, Lana Del Rey or Florence + The Machine to mind.
