Rising British indie rocker Isaac Gracie supplies his personal gorgeous tackle The Strokes' “You Only Live Once,” premiering completely on Billboard at the moment (Nov. 1).

Gracie’s cowl,“You Only Live Once,” is a musing on the difficulties of overly crucial relationships. In Gracie’s model of the tune, he strips again the usually indie-rock tune for a softer strategy, that includes easygoing pop-rock guitar strokes and his personal highly effective, melancholy-tinged vocals.  

“This is one in every of my favorite songs, and I’ve at all times needed to cowl it sooner or later,” Gracie tells Billboard. “It appeared to me that the lyrics are sometimes neglected, the story the tune tells and the world it locations you in is an immersive one. I like the stripped down adaptation they did referred to as ‘I’ll strive something as soon as,’ the lyrics and the narrative stand entrance and centre, so I feel I needed to deliver the 2 variations collectively ultimately.”

“You Only Live Once” joins the already-released “Show Me Love” as a monitor off of Gracie’s upcoming Four-track EP Close Up—Looking Down, set to drop on Nov. 16. Close Up—Looking Down follows the discharge of Gracie’s self-titled debut album earlier this yr.
