Hailing from the far north of Queensland, Australia, Greta Stanley has just released a gorgeous new single from her debut album ‘Full Grown’ released late last year. ‘Heavy Heat’ captures a sunny languorous feel of the tropical north, imbued with a sense of self-reflection and wistfulness. Stanley’s voice paints a beautiful, melancholic dreamscape on the musical canvas.
Stanley says “The line “breathe in do you feel it there” is about this person encouraging me to meditate to ease my racing mind, it’s about the time spent in love in summer Far North Queensland, it’s about first loves and the lessons within that, and bad timing – it’s also kind of this mix of memories from the present and the past, good and bad – a collection from almost four years of connection coming to a bitter halt.”
The accompanying video perfectly captures this nostalgic tone, juxtaposing the bustling city life with the beauty of the countryside and dreamlike senses:
The album is available to buy or stream here.
