Greta Isaac returns with the achingly beautiful ‘Polyfilla’, and teases an upcoming EP project due early 2022. This follows on from her largest headline show to date, performing to a sold out Omeara, London last month.
“This song was pretty cathartic for me to write. I was going through a time in my life where I found myself surrounded by friends, family members, fleeting encounters that all seemed to be working through difficulties within themselves that stemmed from hereditary trauma and pain.” says Greta Isaac about her newest offering “Polyfilla”. Contrasting her last single “5’1”, a scuzzy guitar track, “Polyfilla” is a gut-wrenching ballad delivered over a reduced piano instrumental.
“I think there’s a point in everyone’s lives where you realise that growing up doesn’t just mean leaving home, making advances in your career or gaining independence or even starting a family of your own. A huge part of growing up is healing the child inside of us and accepting that we’re not superhuman. We’re not indestructible. We need care and boundaries. This song is for those who might be struggling with those feelings right now and how even in an adult state, there might be a vulnerable child within us that needs looking after.”
Greta is already an adept story teller, offering a unique lyrical lens that is often deeply, and sometimes uncomfortably, relatable to the listener, effortlessly combining humorous self deprecation with real personal critique and analysis. It’s this juxtaposition with Greta’s pop sensibilities and ear-worm melodies that set her apart from the pack.
Greta’s releases this year have been heavily praised by the likes of Jack Saunders & Sian Eleri at BBC Radio1, as well as The Line Of Best Fit, Notion, CLASH and more.
