Track Of The Day 8/4 – Greta Isaac

'F U'

Welsh artist Greta Isaac has always been creative, always sought ways to channel her need for self-expression.

As a child, she'd write down stories, and make up little songs – silly things are first, before blossoming into something with more depth.

This gift has never left her, something sketched out across a series of single releases and EP projects.

New single 'F U' has a beautiful fragility to it, with her spartan creative palette blended with some poignant lyricism.

'F U' discusses lingering feelings of failure and regret, exploring "this idea of wanting to turn back time and undo things that, with perspective, you know were harmful…"

"I think with this growth and awareness of yourself you can find some peace and clarity from upsetting points in your life. But sometimes our armour can’t hold us together for longer than we want and we’re left thinking: I wish I didn’t have to go through that. I didn’t deserve that," she says.

"There’s a childlike sense of shame and sadness I felt writing this song. To me it’s the musical embodiment of wanting to cradle up in a duvet and hiding away from the weight of our lived experience – resenting having to make sense of it all. 'F U' is a bookmark in my life, but listening to it now, I think I can finally close this chapter and appreciate this story for what it taught me about myself."

A lesson beautifully expressed, 'F U' is a vivid, intoxicating return.
