The dreamy new single “Morphine” by artist Gracie Gray is available to stream on Oregon In A Day, her album that just dropped last Friday. And better yet, it’s accompanied by a music video featuring the artist herself in a contemplative haze.
The scene begins and ends in a bedroom, with a euphoric outdoor ride in between showing Gray singing softly and smiling upwards towards the sky as the light speaks in through the trees. “And I take it way too far, so no one’s love will reach me” she sings painfully while touching her face as though it’s gone numb. The hopeful moment comes during the outdoor scene: she closes her eyes and “oohs” before going right back to where she was in the bedroom.
Sonically, “Morphine” brings to mind a mesh of Beach House with liberal use of slide guitar and the masterful folk song writing of Hand Habits. It’s dreamy and takes the listener on a journey that doesn’t stray too far from home. Watch now:
