Elijah Grae – Castles

Elijah Grae - Castles

Elijah Grae drops off his new single, ‘Castles’.

Elijah Grae, originally from the Bay Area, has used his sharp songwriting abilities to land him credits on Jake Miller’s “Tell Me You Love It” and E-40’s “Red Cup” featuring T-Pain, Kid Ink and B.o.B.

He is a former member of hip hop trio, Drop City Yacht Club, whose single “Crickets” (produced by Grae) garnered over 10 million Spotify plays. It is not easy to fit Grae into one box or genre because he has managed to create a unique blend of soul, R&B, rock and hip-hop that is clever and thoughtful but easy to listen to all at the same time.

“Castles was one of the first records I did for this project,” shares Grae. “It’s a pretty pure tune in the sense that I didn’t overthink it. I was more concerned with the overall vibe in that moment than the technical things that can usually cloud a song. 16-bit nostalgia, crispy drums, a melody, some wordplay…easy.”
