hmv's Next Big Thing... #40 Grace Mitchell

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you quirky songstress Grace Mitchell...

 

Who Is She?

Mitchell is 18 and hails from the far flung city of Portland. Newly signed to Republic, she's just put out her second EP Raceday and she's currently touring with The Weeknd. 

 

Who Does She Sound Like?

This is graceful, powerful pop, with clicky beats, luscious electronics and Mitchell's haunting vocals sat on top. Imagine Charli XCX if she went into the studio with Timbaland and decided to make something that sounded like early Portishead. 

 

Why Should I Be Excited?

She makes quirky interesting tracks, but with big, big choruses. It's an excellent combination. 

 

Can I Hear Something?

Sure. You can preview and purchase her new EP Raceday on the right-hand side of the page.
