Returning to the stunning new EP, ‘I Think You’d Hate It Here’, singer-songwriter Greta Isaac combines anthemic pop tracks, soothing ballads, and the brand new single Mediocrity.

With her recent releases propelling her from rising grassroots artist to huge popstar, Greta’s new EP features the melodic thrills of her most recent single PAYRI$E, as well as the down to earth slower tempos on tracks like how are you not freaking out?. The new single completes the collection, offering a beautiful vocal harmony on top of the precise, delicate acoustic backing that represents the feeling of settling for less.

“I remember writing Mediocrity in a time where I had a lot of things on my mind about why I’d been cocooning myself in who I thought I was for most of my life.” Greta explains, who’s worked with stylist Suzie Walsh and photographer Karina Barberis to bring the new unique aesthetic on the whole EP. “I’d been experiencing a lot of paranoia and was caught in a heightened state of anxiety for a lot of my late teens and early twenties. This song was an ode to that part of my life. ‘Mediocrity’ feels like a sad poem about settling for less in my life in order to feel safe.”
