Tearing down the walls of nostalgia with GRAE’s “Boxes”

Nostalgia can be a hard thing to quit, and maybe even harder as an artist. When your work is filled with digging in the crates, cycling and sourcing through influences and inspirations, objects like records, band T-shirts, and show posters become the objects that define you. This is exactly the problem Toronto-based musician GRAE is facing on her new track “Boxes.”

“The idea for “Boxes”,” says GRAE, “came about when I looked around my room one day and realised I wanted to tear down all the posters I’ve had on my walls since I can remember.” Filled with a mix of emotions—anywhere from sentimental and romantic to frustrated—GRAE wanted to write a song that captured this confusion.
