about

You’re gonna let yourself love The New Graces.

“Songs that feel like a walk along a dusty country road – evocative, warm, connected with the land and its people…”

Nestled down among the hills and valleys of New South Wales’ far south coast, Candelo likes being that bit out of the way of things. It maybe even likes being called a village - it’s few hundred residents happy to be just far enough from some of the world’s dramas.

Conversely, the town – sorry, ‘Village…’ – seems to draw people of creativity. Music just seems to seep out from many of its doors. Including a recent sweet collision of talents and feelings – The New Graces.

Is it Country? If you’re that keen for a pigeonhole for their music - yeah, sure. But a little traditional, and a little ‘alt’, at once. There’s some folkie Irish lilt in it too. Plus a little desert heat-haze that could only be Australian. Guitar, fiddle, double bass underpin the interwoven harmonies of three distinct yet complementary voices.

Melanie Horsnell, Kate Burke, Robyn Martin are all seasoned identities in the Australian music scene, all with slightly different influences and styles. They’ve been solo artists in their own right, and part of bands you heard on the radio, or danced to around a festival campfire. And here, they fall together in this location and combination to make something worthy of your attention.

Between them, they weave tales of farmers, hippies, mothers, sea farers, history, lovers, the ordinary, and the mysterious. Their songs tell stories of their Australia: desert country steeped in history, wild bush dances, snowy mountains and remote swimming holes, generations of family life on the land, waking up in a sunny Sydney bedroom, returning to favourite old pub to play music with friends.

Let You Love Me is the first sample of what The New Graces can deliver. Tuneful, warm, at times very bluntly honest. You will smile knowingly at its feeling, and find yourself singing along.

It’s a teaser for an album coming soon, which has production input from the much-lauded Australian music identity Garth Porter, along with the similarly respected Rod McCormack adding some multi-instrumental work. If you can impress names like that, you’re already doing something right.

lyrics

Some men rush like a storm
Some men are cold like the wind
But you, the gentlest of men
Comes on like the rain
On warm Summer skin

I'm gonna let you love me
Tonight
I'm gonna let you love me
Cause it feels right
I'm gonna let you want me
Night and day
I'm gonna let you love me
Always

We climb high in the valley
Breathe leaves clouds in the cold
I'm strong with the trust inside me
On the horizon
We hold the unknown

I'm gonna let you love me
Tonight
I'm gonna let you love me
Cause it feels right
I'm gonna let you want me
Night and day
I'm gonna let you love me
Always

I'm gonna let you love me
Tonight
I'm gonna let you love me
Cause it feels right
I'm gonna let you want me
Night and day
I'm gonna let you love me
Always
