A majestic moment of melancholy from Marta Del Grandi. ‘Stay’, by the acclaimed Italian composer, and eclectic singer/songwriter is released on 24th November on Fire Records.
Following her acclaimed debut album from 2021, ‘Until We Fossilize’ is “bucolic yet often emotionally complex, her songwriting – patching electronic synths against ambient elements, with a touch of modern classical – seems to tap into areas that go beyond words.” Clash
New track ‘Stay’ is a shimmering snapshot, a requiem of desire and commitment; a blurred memory about the moment when you open your eyes and realize you don’t even know why you suffered so much and for so long. “It’s basically about the end of a healing process and the beginning of a new chapter.” adds Marta.
A plaintive plea, filled with dramatic tension that unfolds ahead of what sounds like a an echoey fairground organ that transports the proceedings heavenwards in all its wavering glory. A triumphant hymn for a brand new day.
