Grace Stevenson of Rebel Yell and 100% fame is today releasing a brand-new EP under her Soft Touch guise. Empty Lovers see’s Grace digging into a tender side of her creative well, drawing upon unfamiliar experiences and a recent displacement to bring to life a sonic aesthetic pumping with vigour and vulnerability.

We spoke briefly with Rebel Yell’s Grace Stevenson about the album’s creation and thematic intent.
