The new single from Orange County based indie pop singer/songwriter and piano virtuoso Gal Musette, 'Into The Blue' is a stunning new glimpse into her forthcoming album 'Pendulum'.
The breezy, euphoric song immerses the listener into a free-flowing and dreamlike aura of kaleidoscopic sounds and hopeful narratives. Featuring glistening vocals, softly shimmering landscapes and Gal's signature melodic allure, the song is a must add to any summer playlist.
Gal confides, 'Into The Blue; is "about letting go of all the expectations I clung on so tightly to, and attempting to break the delusional patterns of my mind, self-loathing and narrow minded thinking. The catharsis of realizing the lack of control I have even over my own mind."
Gal Musette is the artist name used by Grace Freeman, who began writing piano and guitar based lyrical compositions and performing at open mics in her home city of San Clemente, CA at the age of 10. Her graceful approach to melody-driven indie-folk has captured audiences all over Southern California.
At age fourteen, inspired by The Magnetic Fields’ triple album '69 Love Songs', Gal recorded her own collection titled '70 Love Songs', which caught the attention of the band, and won her an opening slot on a few of their Midwestern U.S. tour dates. In more recent years, Gal has opened for several renowned artists such as Macy Gray, Suzanne Vega, Todd Snyder, and Donavon Frankenreiter. While her artist name is taken from bal-musette, the accordion-based, waltz-style French instrumental music, Gal’s primary inspiration is drawn from songwriters including Joni Mitchell, Regina Spektor, Björk, Cocteau Twins, Burt Bacharach, Big Thief and The Cure.
In October 2021, Gal released her debut album, 'Backwards Lullaby', featuring a vocal duet with one of her biggest musical inspirations, Rufus Wainwright. The record explores the pangs of hopeless romances and unrequited love, what it’s like to move beyond idealized love into the acceptance of what is real and constant, as well as the cyclical nature of life and love in relationships. In July 2022, Gal released an orchestral EP consisting of three re-imagined cuts from 'Backwards Lullaby' featuring the musicianship of Via Mardot a talented multi-instrumentalist based in Detroit, Michigan.
