Like many of us during the pandemic, Gracenote has been swept away in the K-drama craze – so much so that it inspired their latest single, "It's Okay to not be Okay," a collaboration with BBS, released on October 23.
The song draws from the popular K-drama of the same title, starring Kim Soo-hyun and Seo Ye-ji.
As the title suggests, it's a track that gives listeners permission to feel the way they do, especially in challenging times.
"The song talks about honesty…honesty with your emotions. Let tears fall if you have to. Acknowledging your weakness will make you even stronger," said drummer EJ Pichay.
It's Gracenote's second track to feature the vocals of bassist Jazz Jorge.
Gracenote is made up of EJ, Jazz, Eunice Jorge on vocals, keyboards, and violin, and Tatsi Jamnague on guitars.
