“Amsterdam” is English singer-songwriter Grace Davies’ sad, sweet love song, and it’s a gorgeous introduction to the artist, and her powerful voice.
The song is honest and moving, and cuts to the heart with simple lyrics. She’s an effortless singer, with depth and emotion, and this track feels like a fantastic introduction for anyone who hasn’t heard Davies before.
“‘Amsterdam’ is my ‘Jolene’,” Davies said. “It’s incredibly honest. It’s about being so frickin’ in love that it hurts, and you don’t trust that something won’t go wrong.”
“‘Amsterdam’ touches on jealousy within a relationship and normalizes it. Not an unhealthy jealousy, but one that we all feel from time to time, and should allow ourselves to feel–without thinking that we’re ‘crazy’! Of course we may get jealous that the person we love most in the entire world is doing things without us, and of course the thought crosses our minds that we may possibly lose that person to someone else (or somewhere else). We’re human, and I think it’s a beautiful thing.”
“Amsterdam” is from Davies new EP, Friends With The Tragic, which is out now. The single was produced by Adam Argyle (Dua Lipa, James Bay, Rita Ora) and composed by piano.
