Things have started to move into a higher gear for Chasing Grace in the last few months, culminating in a February residency at London’s The Social billed under the name ‘Chasing Grace and Friends’ which saw the likes of Naughty Boy, Lauren Aquilina and a secret acoustic guest spot by throaty warbler Jessie J (yes it seems that Chasing Grace have some friends in high places).
Next up comes Free, a tune which sees the band drop the soul aspects of their sound and go full-on in trying to rival Avicii’s Wake Me Up. Packing a big ‘woah-oh-oh’ chorus, propulsive speed-strums, strident piano and the bands trademark boy / girl vocals it’s the duo's most radio friendly morsel to date and allows them to add their name to all the ‘legends’ that have recorded songs entitled Free that include Curiosity Killed The Cat, Ultra Nate and DJ Quicksilver. The band play London’s Lexington in March and have so far been confirmed for this year’s Live At Leeds and Barn On The Farm festival. Our stab at naming them as Ones To Watch for 2013 back in 2012 (where at the time we called them Slow Club jamming with Ben Howard) may have been a little premature (the band even tweeted about it themselves at the tame saying that it was a surprise) but maybe 2014 is their's for the taking?
