Katy Pinke Unveils New Single/Music Video “Grapefruit”

Singer-songwriter, actor, and multi-disciplinary artist Katy Pinke releases “Grapefruit,” the latest single from her upcoming self-titled debut album.

Pinke shares, “This song is like a lullaby to myself. It was to deal with the pain of love and loss, of trying to find and remember love after loss. The melody came to me from another place — something tucked in a far-away corner in my mind, maybe from a time before I knew what it meant to lose someone you love, who loves you back — but it quickly became the kind of melody I would associate with that bittersweet feeling. Maybe I heard it in twinkling notes floating out of the jewelry box I had, or maybe it was the melody to a show-tune I’ve forgotten. There is a part of me suspended in time, protected in love, even when the rest of me hasn’t thought it was. This video is a tribute to that part.”

“Grapefruit” pays tribute to Pinke’s grandma, who she lost when she was very young. The song attains a balance between the personal and universally identifiable emotions.

Simple, stripped down, and recorded in a single day with no overdubs — the song is human, honest, and vibrantly alive.

The video, edited by Pinke, blends home videos from the early nineties and footage from the present day: revealing Pinke on a search for the smells, sights, and sounds of a place where she last saw her grandmother. The result lies somewhere between a biopic and a waking dream.

Opening on a delicate, softly shimmering guitar, “Grapefruit” reveals the deliciously intimate voice of Pinke, a voice at once introspective and elusively expectant. Akin to a tender cradle song, the down-to-earth melody allows Pinke’s vocals to give breath to complex sensations of wispy, beguiling textures.

Highlighted by Katy Pinke’s soft-lensed, jewel-like vocals, “Grapefruit” merges minimalism and warmth into a wonderful song.
