Raw, unfiltered, and all grown up – Grace Amos has just launched the video for her latest single Kiss You Til I’m Sober, an edgy haze of a song, impatient with desire.
Kiss You Til I’m Sober describes the hot frustration and anticipation of the seconds before a romantic catalyst – the will they, won’t they dance just before either person decides to cross that line forever. The video reflects this heat perfectly, as Grace enthuses, “I’m obsessed with the video! This song takes place within a moment, and the music video reflects the passion and intensity of that moment, and the disregard for whatever consequences may come of a spontaneous moment with another person. We incorporated references to bad omens into the scenes with the use of the ladder and the cracked mirror. It was so much fun to shoot and I think the vibe of the video exactly reflects the sound my music right now, for this track and my upcoming debut EP.”
Produced by James K Lewis (Rudimental) and racking up over 100,000 streams on Spotify since its release, Kiss You Til I’m Sober is a radical departure from Grace’s acoustic roots – dark, brooding, and hypnotic, guitars sizzle on top of pounding heartbeat of a rhythm section, as Grace’s powerful vocal takes centre stage. Kiss You Til I’m Sober takes inspiration from Grace’s rock heroes – Miley Cyrus, Dove Cameron, and the inimitable Alanis Morrissette – and yet still feels totally unique to the young artist. The track is a taste of Grace’s upcoming debut EP, expected to land later in the year. The prolific young artist is set to perform alongside triple j faves The Rubens and Middle Kids at Valleyways Festival in September.
Kiss You Til I’m Sober is a mature offering from Grace, who, at only 18 years old, has already spent years perfecting her craft. It’s a fully-formed vision, created by an artist completely in control of her sound. It’s all just the beginning for Grace Amos; she’s expected to release her debut EP later in 2022, and is cutting her teeth on the festival stage at Valleyways in September.Sydney Unleashed is one of Australia’s premier entertainment publications exploring the latest in lifestyle trends.
