TikTok sensation Addison Grace releases bittersweet indie pop

Salt Lake City-based musician and TikTok star, Addison Grace, has today (April 27th) released raw new single ‘Getting Used To’. 

This comes ahead of the eagerly-awaited five-track debut EP ‘Immaturing’ due next week on May 6th. If you’ve not heard of Addison Grace before then you might want to jump on the bandwagon now before they take off. 

Making personal music for a universal audience, Grace’s intimate songs somehow manage to speak what the listener feels but cannot quite put into words. The 20-year-old singer, songwriter, and social media star – who is non-binary and uses he/they pronouns – has fast made a name for themselves as a singular new artist, showcasing their one-of-a-kind perspective through mesmerizing bedroom pop and a bold, funny, utterly idiosyncratic online persona.

The new single ‘Getting Used To’ holds the signature essence of Addison Grace journal entry-like confessional songwriting and delicate vocals that reach profound emotional depths.

“This is, quite literally, my teenage and young adulthood told in music form.”

The track chronicles Grace as they are face-to-face with the realization that they are getting older. Against a clean drum beat, Grace sings with distinct honesty with lyrics ‘It sucks to grow up / ‘Cause I’m stuck in my head, 19, / I’m getting used to / I’ve been kinda stressed / I’m a bit depressed / My life’s a fucking mess / But you know I’ll get used to it.’ 

It is within this unflinching rawness, complete with all the anxieties and confusion that come with growing up, that listeners can freely and comfortably find themselves.

Explaining the thought behind the song, Grace notes: “‘Getting Used To’ is about that awkward in-between stage of growing up, for me it was specifically being 19. 

“You don’t feel ready to be an adult but you feel too old to be a kid anymore. It’s scary, confusing, and awful, but you learn to cherish your memories and find the good in your current experiences.”

The youthfulness of Grace’s songwriting and recent releases make Immaturing an apt EP title. The debut EP from the rising star comes highly-anticipated, with recent releases – including ‘I Wanna Be a Boy’ and ‘Makes Me Sick’ – garnering over one million streams.

Grace is thrilled to put this collection out into the world, saying: “I’ve been so excited to finish and release this set of songs and finally have my first official EP! 

“Immaturing started as a group of independent songs that somehow ended up perfectly telling what it feels like to grow up. While the order of the songs plays a key role–each song still has its own feel, its own story, and I hope everyone can find their own way to relate regardless of where they are in life.
