Singer Grace Davies releases her latest single ‘used to you’ - a heartbreaking track filled to the brim with raw emotion. The song, which was inspired by an unexpected event that occurred in 2020, is available to buy and stream now via Believe. Following on from the successful releases of tracks ‘i met a boy online’, ‘testosterone’ and ‘toothbrush’, ‘used to you’ was produced and mixed by Toby Scott (Little Mix, Girls Aloud, Kaiser Chiefs), and is the next single to be unleashed from her highly anticipated second EP “i wonder if you wonder” out later this year. The EP contains the stunning song ‘somebody’ and, excitingly, her most-requested track ‘roots’ will finally see release – rewarding her legions of fans who have been calling for the track on a daily basis since she first wrote it in 2017. Grace has opened up on her inspirations of ‘used to you’, “I wrote it the day after I found out my label was unexpectedly shutting down and I would no longer be a signed artist. My manager called me and said he had a large gin and tonic and a curry with my name on it, so I should get on a train and be around the people who love and support me. So I did, and I cried the whole way there. A relationship I had worked so hard to keep afloat was gone like a rug pulled from underneath me - and there was nothing I could do to try and save it. I actually wrote the first verse on the train on my way to Brighton the next day for a writing session with Olivia Sebastianelli & Toby Scott. ‘used to you’ is probably the easiest song I’ve ever written; every single lyric poured out of me so fast because I had so many emotions and so much I wanted to say. It’s such an important song for me, because it documents such a heartbreaking and brutal event in my career, and writing music was the only way I could express my emotions publicly. It wasn’t the end of the world, or the end of my career - but it truly felt like it at the time, and listening to it now makes me feel so proud of what I have accomplished as an independent artist. It’s one of my favourites for sure. This break-up in particular had a happy ending, with Grace now back as an independent artist taking the time to find herself and create music that showcases her full potential. Her songs have garnered support in the press, TV and radio - ‘i met a boy online,’ was played on MTV’s new series of Catfish UK and ‘Just A Girl’ was used in the Netflix Original series ‘The One’. Grace also shared her unmissable cover of The Goo Goo Dolls ‘iris’, which was impressively recorded in one take and featured in the 2020 finale of ITV’s hit show Love Island. 2020 marked the start of a new era in Grace’s career with the release of her successful debut EP Friends With The Tragic hitting 11M+ streams to date and underpinning her reputation as a deft songwriter. Davies has received praise from the likes of MTV UK, The Sunday Times, Wonderland, Official Charts, Popjustice, DORK, Notion, The Line Of Best Fit, Euphoria Magazine and Girls Are Awesome. She recently featured as a guest and performer for “The Guilty Feminist” podcast and has gained support from BBC Introducing, BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio 1 DJ, Danny Howard. Grace has established herself to be an all-encompassing musician and an undeniable one to watch, expect more from the fearless young pop artist soon.
