Daily Discovery #9: Grace Lightman

Ridiculously stunning vocals paired with a slow lingering beat allows Grace Lightman to whisk you away to your dreamland with this brilliant release…

This mesmerising track by Grace Lightman, a London based artist, truly showcases her effortless, or ‘faultless’ shall we say, vocals. The resemblance to Kate Bush in this track is undeniable; and we very much welcome it.

She reaches the highest of notes, and beautifully passes between them. When matched with the calming mix of synths and a slow drum beat, you can’t help but to be captivated by the track.

Describing the meaning behind the record to Clash magazine, Grace said:
“‘Faultless displays a beauty pageant in an eerie Lynchian world, where I am an apparition controlling the contestants. It’s all about the bittersweet meaning of perfection and what it means to be Faultless.”

Ultimately, she wants us to choose what it means to be faultless – but Grace is saying that striving to be faultless will send you to madness.

Grace surely has an exciting run ahead of her, with ‘Faultless’ only the second masterpiece she has brought us. Her most recent release, ‘White China (Raging Bull)’, has only just appeared on her Soundcloud and is equally as capturing.
