British/French singer, songwriter and producer Gracie Convert releases second single ‘Maybe’, an open questioning of beauty standards and the pressures residing on women to look and feel a certain way. Growing up in South Africa, London and France, Gracie siting that music has always been consistent throughout her life and has always been something she could turn to.
The song itself, describes a narrative known all to well by some, of a painful and emotional breakup, but it goes even deeper than the typical love story with lyrical lines that delve into common thoughts and questions that may enter the consciousness such as ‘Maybe if I had a thinner waist…. maybe if I just stayed in my place, you wouldn’t have moved on so fast’ Gracie unapologetically does not hold back and describes the pressures and torments often felt by women in this Instagram filter era.
Containing catchy synth melodies, undulating layered guitars and a deep and heavy bass, thus making for the perfect level between R&B and Pop.
“There is so much pressure on women to look and act a certain way, we’re taught that our value lies within our physical attractiveness and our ability to fit a certain stereotype, be sweet and play along, be fun, but not say too much.” – Gracie Convert
