10 questions with cosmic pop singer Grace Lightman

One part ABBA, two parts Twin Peaks, rising London-based artist Grace Lightman is one to watch this year.

Currently working on her debut album set for release in the coming months, Lightman’s catchy new single ‘Zero Impact’ (out now on Handsome Dad Records) is an infectious pop fuelled slice of electronica, entrenched in gritty synths.

“Zero Impact is about trying to exist in the world without disturbing those around you, almost like an apparition,” Grace explains. “Treading on eggshells while essentially trying to fit seamlessly into humanity. Just thought I would present that musically in a more attention seeking way.” Get to know the rising star bringing cosmic realness to your playlist…
