Grace Day is a singer/songwriter from Donegal who is gaining recognition for her heartfelt and honest songwriting. Her debut single “Better Guy” is out now on Soundcloud and it is a striking ballad about a bad relationship.
With pop and country sensibilities apparent on the single “Better Guy” becomes a discussion on body image as Day details instances in a previous relationship where she was made feel less than she was. “You built me up just to watch me fall” goes one of the lines as she talks about redrawing herself in the image of those girls in the magazines and staring obsessively in the mirror finding fault with herself.
Day’s writing is mercurial as she exhibits a tenacity for imagery and arrangement. As a debut it is self assured and polished and I know will be hearing more from Grace Day.
