Track Of The Week – Grayling – River Song

This week’s A&A Track Of The Week is the debut single from Glasgow Singer-Songwriter Grayling.

Grayling is the artist project of singer-songwriter Emma Murdoch. The EP – ‘Greenhouse’ is inspired by failed relationships, therapy and indie femme artists of the moment such as Phoebe Bridgers and Julia Jacklin.

Grayling pours emotive imagery into her lyrics which dance in partnership with her dulcet tones and wistful guitar melodies. She has worked closely with producer Luke Palmer on the EP and has Conor Smith (pedal and steel guitar), Niall Forde (drums) & & Liam Chapman (drums & percussion) featured. 

Speaking about the single Emma/Grayling said:

This song was written in the midst of lockdown and in the early stages of a separation, when you’re still holding onto the remnants of a relationship and the “what might have beens”.

Grayling has recently shared stages with The Joy Hotel and Stu Larsen and played Country to Country in Glasgow’s OVO Hydro as well as King Tut’s New Noise showcase. She will also play at the Patronaat Theatre in the Netherlands on 18th June in a 12 piece band celebrating Paul McCartney’s 80th Birthday.
