Australian singer/songwriter Grace Turner shows a haunting, hypnotic vein of folk on new track “Angry”, her striking vocal presence being immediately captivating. Somewhere between the ghostly allure of Marissa Nadler and the spirited folk presence of Joan Baez, Turner’s vocals sit, on a serene cloud, as they float alongside swaying guitars and twangy flourishes. Lyrics of relatable frustration ride on this – a comforting mixture of folk, pop, and country – as the memorable vocal and melodic presence become entrenched.
“‘Angry’ was written in the back of a stranger’s car shooting across rural France after I’d hitched a ride escaping a failed attempt at a farm stay in the country,” Turner explains. “It is a reflective song; it’s about being very frustrated and tearing your life a part in order to find something different. Perhaps a heavy topic but I hope the song leaves one with a feeling of hope and peace of mind.”
