Gretta Ray – Bigger Than Me

After experimenting with the concept before, Gretta Ray has now announced a series of β€˜Duologies’. These are two songs released simultaneously, with the same theme, but sonically different. A bit like good old double A-sided singles. The first Duology, her first release of 2021, consists of the songs Bigger Than MeΒ andΒ Readymade.

Ray says about the concept: β€œWhen I write a song, I often find it’s in response to something that I’ve already written about, whether that be a week or a year ago. Bigger Than Me and Readymade are both songs about my relationship with creativity, which is something that I can become very obsessive about, especially since I’ve found myself on that path, completely immersed in it, collaborating with a lot of like-minded people.”

Readymade is an intimate, reflective song, but Bigger Than Me is my favourite. In line with its title, it’s a big, upbeat, glossy indie-pop song. It’s got delicious drum fills and a climax that’s backed by a string section.

Gretta Ray is a Melbourne-based singer-songwriter. She won prestigious airplay and songwriting awards at just 18, and Bigger Than Me is a great radio-friendly composition as well. Another winner!
