Greyson Chance is back with a brand new single, ‘Holy Feeling’.
The singer-songwriter first rose to fame when a video of his performance of Lady Gaga‘s ‘Paparazzi’, at a grade school music festival, went viral on YouTube, gaining him over 68 million views.
Now, with a couple of albums under his belt and a whole string of singles, the artist returns with his mellow yet stunningly powerful offering, in the form of ‘Holy Feeling’.
The song has a certain quality of George Ezra about it during the first verse, when Chance’s gravelly vocal kicks in. However, by the chorus, we are treated to an uplifting and strong voice that is begging to be sung along to with full force.
It has an emotive and optimistic vibe to the song that has me reaching to repeat it, time and again.
The video for the song is pretty simplistic yet stylisticly cool too. It was shot on 16mm film and features people displaying a love and passion for each of their specific creative crafts – from a ballerina and a carpenter to a photographer and a tattoo artist – none of whom are actors. Interestingly, it was shot in the same location as that of his single, ‘shut up’. Check it out below.

This weeks Wild-Card Wednesday is ‘Stronger Than Ever’ by Raleigh Ritchie. Some of you may recognise him as Game of Thrones’ ‘Grey Worm’. I’m a big fan of his work due to the all the complex and original ideas he expresses through his music.
This Wild-Card is one of my favourite songs as it achieves so much in just under 4 minutes!
‘Stronger Than Ever’ has a good beat, accompanied by some very empowering lyrics. The song reflects a personal issue in such an insane amount of detail that almost every word speaks for itself. On top of a great song, Ritchie has published a very high quality video, the subject matter of the video metaphorically reflects the deeper meaning of the song along with some amazing filmography skills!
(Watch out for the key moment of the whole video at 1:48!)
I really hope Raleigh Ritchie releases more music soon, and I look forward to seeing what ideas he has to share with the public!
Also you can catch him at Wireless Festival this year!
