Isaac Gracie’s Debut Album

Isaac Gracie’s highly anticipated, self-titled debut album is out now via Virgin EMI/Republic Records. 

 

The album was largely produced by Markus Dravs at RAK Studios in London and features eleven tracks, including Gracie’s recent tracks, “Last Words,” “Terrified” and “The Death of You & I.” See the full tracklisting below.

 

Of his debut album, Gracie says, “Over the course of the two years it took to complete this record, I learnt more about myself and about music than I had in the entirety of my prior life. It was the biggest test I’ve ever undertaken and a winding journey that I won’t forget. To now have the record as a physical representation of a heavy and formative time in my life, that can be traced and re-remembered through listening to it, is an awesome and unique reward for the time and effort and love that was spent.”

 

In celebration of the album, Gracie is set to embark on a UK tour throughout April, followed by a European tour throughout May. See the full list of show dates below. Tickets are available now here.

 

23-year-old London-raised singer-songwriter Isaac Gracie has been finding his feet, working out who he is and discovering what he wants since the industry spotlight fell on him. The fuss was caused by a dusty-sounding, careworn home recording of “Last Words” that was uploaded online without expectation and any anticipation of what was to follow. The voice behind it was completely new to the premise of where writing a great song might lead him. Even now he’d tell you that he’s still slowly working it all out, but this debut collection sounds as fully-realized and confident as any of recent memory. Isaac Gracie is a new British voice, poetic in his placement of words and accomplished in their delivery.

ISAAC GRACIE SHARES MURA MASA COLLABORATION

THE DEATH OF YOU & I EP RELEASED TODAY 

“a poetic creature who channels a mysticism, haloing his sounds with a timeless quality” i-D



Isaac Gracie is pleased to share, “One Night”, the third track from his new EP, The Death Of You & I – out today through Republic Records. “One Night” was written alongside Mura Masa, and recorded/produced at Eastcote Studios in London, and helps to form Isaac’s most fully realised body of work to date.

For a young artist who exudes growing confidence from each release, The Death Of You & I is Isaac at his most characterful and accomplished, and “One Night” is another singular example of what he’s doing so beautifully.

The Death of You & I EP was largely recorded at London’s Eastcote Studios, and whilst it doesn’t signal a change of direction from Isaac’s output to date, it certainly suggests a versatility and alternate side of his character. The roaring title track, with its unexpected, theatrical chorus line, sounds as though it could be soundtracking an old spaghetti western before exploding with rage.

“Silhouettes of You” which follows is a soaring widescreen anthem of quite dizzying proportions. It doesn’t simply scrape the sky so much as slowburns through it. It’s the lighters/mobile backlights aloft scorcher that should soundtrack ‘moments’ the globe over. A staggering anthem.

With the release here of “One Night” and the EP’s conclusion, the tender “Love” (Ain’t Always So Good), a more hushed folksy story that mostly resembles the earlier tracks that featured on Isaac’s introductory EPs, it’s a record that signals a fascinating step forward for the young London based musician.

Tender and charming, it’s the sound of a young poet comfortable with dropping his words onto a page and re-arranging them emphatically. Isaac orbits a musical world that is almost oversubscribed with talented young voices, but in truth he acts as the antidote to all of them. A characterful modern musician who takes the tested inspirations of love and hurt, and portrays it vividly with that moreish, keening vocal of his. He’s the real deal.

Isaac Gracie has quickly become a reliable name when it comes to releasing songs of depth, honesty and quality. Two EPs, one self-recorded and one live, and a towering recent Markus Dravs produced single “All In My Mind”, all had a very recognisable stamp of Isaac’s ear for melody and way with words.

This new EP, The Death Of You & I was largely recorded at London’s Eastcote Studios within the past couple of months, and whilst it doesn’t signal a change of direction from Isaac wholesale, it certainly suggests a versatility. The roaring title track, streaming now, sounds as though it could be soundtracking an old spaghetti western before it explodes with rage on its chorus line.

“Silhouettes of You” which follows is a soaring widescreen anthem of quite dizzying proportions. It doesn’t simply scrape the sky so much as slow-burns through it. It’s the lighters/mobile backlights aloft scorcher that should soundtrack ‘moments’ the globe over. A staggering anthem.

“For One Night”, Isaac enlisted the ears of serial collaborator Mura Masa, and the pair have written a tune that cris-crosses and weaves before piling straight into another kaleidoscopic punch of a chorus. “Love” (Ain’t Always So Good) is a hushed folksy story that most resembles the earlier tracks that featured on the introductory EPs. Tender and charming, it’s the sound of a young poet comfortable with dropping his words onto a page and re-arranging them emphatically. 

Isaac orbits a musical world that is almost oversubscribed with talented young voices, but in truth he acts as the antidote to all of them. A modern musician who takes the tested inspirations of love and hurt, and portrays it vividly with that moreish, keening vocal of his. He’s the real deal, and The Death Of You And I EP is his most realized body of work yet.
