Grace Joyner just released her new single, “Fake Girlfriend,” giving us a taste of what’s coming on her sophomore album, Settle In. Sticking to her indie pop sound, “Fake Girlfriend” is a groovy and candid take on casual and not so casual romantic situations.
“How hard is it to be sweet to your fake girlfriend,” Joyner croons in the chorus, in a humorous ode to modern dating. Some may call them “situationships.” They can be confusing, but Joyner captures them perfectly with her haunting, folky vocals and fun beats.
This is the first of a few singles coming out in the next couple months as we get closer to Settle In, dropping on April 24.
