Grace Mitchell seems like a bit of a genre denier. The stuff of her’s I’ve checked out on the back of this song seems to draw on all sorts of influences, from straight up pop, electro, R&B. Fair enough – for an old indie rock head like me that’s a bit confusing but the kids probably love it. You might love it, give it a go.
Here though, she sounds like Smashing Pumpkins. I’m happy with that. So happy I’m including it as Thursday’s track of the day. She’s also from Portland, Oregon which is probably my favourite place on earth. (I went there once under protest and found it was one of the coolest places ever, which just goes to show you should never be dictated to by your prejudices).
