DECAYCAST Premieres: Listen to Avant-pop artist mynameisblueskye “Awkward Grace ” now!
East Coast bedroom avant-pop producer mynameisblueskye shares his newest track “Awkward Grace” for an exclusive stream with Decaycast, and we couldn’t be happier to share this morose, avant pop offering. “Awkward Grace” blends undulation droning synth chords below the artists honest and open vocal deliveries, which seem to be the main emphasis sonically and conceptually.
The vocals tell the story of triumph, overcoming fears, and all the the insecurities and uncertainties that come along with that. The timbre of both the vocal delivery and backing synth (which has a rather organ like character to it, which adds a layer of wonder and nostalgia), represent the process and journey the track articulates quite nicely. The title itself references a duality of process, a complexity of discovery, mynameisblueskye states:
“Ten years ago, I worked on a collection of songs and I named it Awkward Stage. The title was referring to the very fact that when I was younger, I wanted to write songs and make music, …but I had crazy performance anxiety. I would always sing in a way that was hushed yet audible due to performance shyness. Ten years later, I released albums, EPs and have not only worked out my singing voice, I gained a little more confidence. This confidence should show in my recent recordings.”
All in all, a to the point, powerfully honest track, hopefully the full EP carries this vibe throughout, we will be checking back soon to pick it up. Take a listen to the blissful track below and make sure to pick up the EP “Awkward Grace” when it comes out!
