Following her recent single, “Dark,” SHEAL is revealing a new, melodic piano-led ballad.
“‘Gravity’ is about what it’s like when you choose to love someone in spite of hurt and difference,” the artist explains. “Rather than running away from tenuous relationships, holding space for the other person to be themselves with all their flaws and beauty.”
While her previous single explores the experience of fear shrinking one’s inner world, “Gravity” charts its expansion through love.
Lilting clarinet and strings elevate the grace of this song’s gentle beauty, which is one of SHEAL’s most ambitious pieces, both lyrically and production-wise. It conveys the feeling of weightlessness at the centre of “Gravity.”
