31st January 2020 saw Welsh wonder Hannah Grace return to the fold with yet another stunning original. Released via Never Fade Records, the infectious Blue is in fact Hannah’s third release this January. Now I have nothing but positive things to say when it comes to everything Hannah Grace. She’s a startling singer/ songwriter who has an exciting future ahead of her. Actually Grace’s debut album will be unveiled later this year, also she’s announced headline shows at Cardiff’s Clwb Ifor Bach and London’s Omeara for this very April.
I’ve listened to the brilliant Blue a number of times and I cannot help but praise the end product. This succulent single was an enchanting gem which Hannah’s perfectly penned. Blue was in fact a slice of soulful pop which worked wonders, the melody was breezy, then you had infectious lyrics and a bubbly vocal delivery. These perfectly penned words had me picturing a failing relationship and putting off the inevitable because you don’t want to fall into depression “Something tells me I’ll be up all night/ Don’t wanna waste a moment with you/ Hold me, don’t you let me go/ I just don’t wanna feel Blue”.
Here is what Grace had to say “‘Blue,’ was one of the first songs I wrote for my album and was quite different to anything I’d written before. I wanted to write something that made me feel good, something I could dance to and really enjoy performing live. I wrote it about being tired of feeling blue all the time! I wanted to put all of my energy into feeling positive. It’s been very helpful for me to sometimes just be distracted from the stresses of life and surround myself with kind people and music to dance to! Everybody gets down with the pressures and sadness of the real world but sometimes you just have to let your hair down and let it go”.
