Just when I thought I couldn’t love Grace Petrie any harder, she goes and releases this stonker of a single. ‘We’ve Got an Office in Hackney’ tells Grace’s experiences of the kind of capitalist hipsters who seek to turn protest musicians into “products”.
“The song is about Music Industry representatives who have tried at various points to wrangle me into some kind of marketable commodity – most of the lyrics are exact quotes.”
Musicians tempted to leave the DIY scene behind and seek out a trendy record label need to watch this cautionary tale! #DIYnotEMI #NeverGoToHackney
