Gretta Ray’s first release of 2021 introduces an innovative concept in new music sharing: Duologies — two songs joined in theme but creatively distinct, issued as a pair, with echoes of the classic Double A-sided single. “Bigger Than Me" / “Readymade” is the first in a series of Duologies lined up for release through 2021.
“Bigger Than Me”, co-produced by Robby De Sa and Dylan Nash(Dean Lewis) and written in one 12-hour session with Dylan Nash (Dean Lewis) and Ned Philpot, is a big, exhilarating pop song that embraces the leap of faith in Gretta’s meteoric journey, from winning Triple J Unearthed and the Vanda & Young Songwriting Award at 18 to her recent inroads in London and the USA. "Readymade” arrived four months after “Bigger Than Me”, written with Duncan Boyce (Sam Smith) in London under the same thematic spell, but with the more intimate, reflective tone of an inner voice in a quiet room.
“When 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.” – Gretta Ray
