Delve into the enigmatic world of Grace McLean’s latest song, ‘Albertine’.


In her new single,”Albertine,” Grace McLean illustrates for us what love and appreciating each other is truly about. The song is about the mysterious side of a character called Albertine, that seems to be elusive, interrogating the capability of one to rely on their own perception.

“Albertine” starts softly with the light strokes of the synth which grow in its intensity with the repetition of the interesting melody. McLean’s vocals, in a chilling and private whisper, complement the song’s beautiful, but tough background. As the track progresses melancholic piano keys and orchestral strings build a soft and intimate sound that eases tempo of time.

By employing extensive and insightful lyrics, McLean extraordinarily succeeds in displaying the downsides of being in a relationship with an unknowable partner, thus depicting the inner workings of such a relationship. The masterfully crafted crescendo of music with the drumbeats and strings reaching to peak and the lyrics echoing the concept of release and disappointing fall capture this song in a nut shell.

According to Grace, “Albertine” was based on the idea of an unpredictable and changeable lover who sometimes has the clarity as if a tear like that of a delicate moment in a relationship, which is undeniable. This motif of making sense of chaos also runs through the whole song and touches a listener on a very emotional level.

In this song, Grace McLean demonstrates her gift for writing self-reflective and deeply meaningful lyrics. In the course of the song, through the haunting melodies and poignant lyrics, it provides an opportunity to the listeners to explore the enigmatic nature of love and perception, and what remains is the lasting impression after the final note fades away.
