Nothing To Say

By Grace Amos, MGM 2022.

Following up on the preciously talented identical twin 18-year-olds of Bo’Ness renown, we have an equally talented 18-year-old in Grace Amos.

I’ve already reviewed her previous single, Kiss You ‘Til I’m Sober which is her most successful release so far with over 140,000 streams.

She’s also announced the pending release of her debut EP ALL ABT U .

Nothing To Say is a track about those people who fill up space by talking a lot but really have nothing to say.

You know the type – they seem to like the sound of their own voice.

Grace comments that “I had this one person on my mind a bit and needed to vent! The lyrics are about someone who is all talk and no game basically – it’s a bit of fun really.”

It’s an edgy piece of rock that is propelled forward by a driving bass and drum track complimented by distorted guitars with Grace’s powerful vocal front and centre.

Grace made the transition from a 16-year-old sweet country folk singer to rock‘n’roll siren with Kiss You ‘Til I’m Sober, and Nothing To Say suggests that she’s heading further down the rock goddess path.

Going on the quality of the tracks that she’s already released, Grace‘s EP should be worth checking out.

Nothing To Say and Kiss You ‘Til I’m Sober are well written and beautifully performed tracks from a young artist who is supremely confident.

They’ve both got an edginess and solid rock sound that would make them great pub and festival anthems.

Grace is another in the brigade of young performers who have embraced the return of hard guitar driven pub rock in the true Aussie tradition.

I always felt that those pundits predicting the demise of guitar rock were being somewhat premature.
