The new single from East London singer-songwriter Rose Gray brings ‘60s soul music to today’s indie-pop scene. Having cited her love for Motown in the past, the influence becomes clear as “good life” combines a simple piano ballad with a relaxed R&B beat, ornamented with Gray’s intoxicating, soulful vocals. A reflection on life that finds contentment in the good and the bad, the track hints at a promising future for the singer. Watch the video created by Gray herself for “good life” below.
