Grace Mitchell is a Menace on 'Cali God'

Grace Mitchell

The singer's new single is inspired by Hollywood's seedy, glamorous underbelly. 

Grace Mitchell's debut album looks to be one of the year's most well-rounded pop projects, having first steam-rolled her contemporaries with the Nirvana-leaning "Kids" and followed with her soaring synth-heavy, "Now." Today, the rising songstress dropped a third track, "Cali God," which delivers a red-hot attitude above menacing, hip-hop-influenced production.

Mitchell told OUT her new track is "about an requited love that turns hostel when the greed and desire of one discouraged lover becomes too much to stand." Sung from the perspective of that "dangerously co-dependent young lover," the hard-edged "Cali God" is inspired by "the narcissistic hustle of southern California," where romance becomes twisted in Hollywood's seedy, glamorous underbelly.

When we caught up with the rising star at Coachella last month, she described her new album as "a collection of many different sounds, so there's something for everyone. Mitchell continued, saying, "the album's kind of broad, from hip-hop to electronic to rock, but it's mainly influenced by rock elements"--a range showcased by the LP's leading three tracks.
