Hercules & Love Affair - Grace
This is a sneaky little track. For the first few listens, it didn't click with me. There wasn't enough meat on the bones, as it were. So I put it to one side before coming back to it a couple of days later, as I usually do whenever that happens. Turns out my ears must have been having an off day because 'Grace' is a subtle and gorgeous single that I now can't get out of my head. Layers of haunting vocals and beautiful instrumentation harmonise perfectly. Whack on a pair of noise-cancelling headphones, and you'll sink right into this.
