Grace Carter reveals live video for ‘Silence’
‘Silence’ streamed over 3 million times across Spotify + Apple Music
Hotly-tipped British singer Grace Carter has revealed a live video for debut single Silence. Watch it here. Having received over 3 million streams globally, Silence is an enigmatic first offering, which was co-written with identical twin brother producers The 23rd and with additional production from Canadian producer Koz. The track was recorded during a two-week studio session in Spain, where Carter stacked up vocal beds 40 layers deep in some spots to capture her vision. The arrangement is simple, drums and a piano carrying most of the musical weight, but the textures are engrossing, and Carter’s vocal delivery, which calls to mind shades of Adele and India Arie, is mesmerizing.
Growing up in Brighton, Grace Carter began songwriting during her school days, and at the age of fourteen was already performing her own material in public. One year later, Grace had converted her bedroom into a makeshift recording studio and when she reached music college she taught herself the piano by watching YouTube videos. The collection of recordings Carter assembled during her time at school are remarkable, not only for their emotional and musical maturity, but for the sheer magnetism of her performances, Silence offers the first taste of what’s in store for the debut album Carter’s currently hard at work preparing, and it’s a promising glimpse to say the least.
