Grace says, “I wrote this song in the hallway of a Vienna hostel with a borrowed guitar – inspired by the striking architecture, the layers of history and a disappointing visit with someone I was trying not to love. As both a songwriter and urban planner, my songs are deeply rooted in a sense of place; the song’s chorus personifies the city and likens my love to a uselessly beautiful artefact, a grand gesture. I composed the string quartet parts to reinforce the song’s drama, whimsy, and dark romanticism. It’ll be released in late fall’s poetic dying moments.”
