Kilkenny singer-songwriter Robert Grace has perfectly captured the zeitgeist and overall feel of the past few months. On his brand new version of “Fake Fine,” Grace is now getting vocal support from multi-platinum selling US shooting star Gnash, who is giving this get-well hit that has been streamed millions of times already a brand new polish.
“It’s a pandemic, it’s a fuckin’ disease. And it’s following me ...”, Robert Grace states in his super catchy hit “Fake Fine,” which has hit No. 1 on both the Spotify viral charts and the Shazam Charts in Ireland and furthermore entered the top 10 airplay charts as well as the top 30 general Spotify charts.
To date, the track has accumulated over three million streams globally – and counting.
“The song is about acting like you’re fine when really you are not,” Grace says of the song. “When it’s all just pretending. The situation itself might not even be that bad, but, for some reason, something just isn’t right and you try to find out why that is.”
In true Irish storytelling fashion, the songwriter, musician, and producer from Graignamanagh, Kilkenny describes the somewhat hazy feeling of feeling beside yourself.
“Like you’re somehow in the wrong film and hiding behind a mask,” he ends.
