Gracie and Rachel | 03/14/2018

    

Gracie and Rachel are magnetic fields: Opposites who attracted in high school and never looked back. One classically-trained, the other unconventionally taught, certainty fuses with the unknown in the modern baroque pop Gracie and Rachel have made ever since. The power of Gracie and Rachel’s particular alchemy—that of a secret language between musical sisters, with a preternatural melodic sensibility—has never been more potent or realized than on their sophomore record, ‘Hello Weakness You Make Me Strong.’

With more focus on billowing electronics and hints of dusky but sharply- defined baroque-pop cadences, ‘Hello Weakness You Make Me Strong’ bursts open pristine emotionality and self-excavation. These ten bold, oceanic songs chart the crests and crashes of feeling and thinking that one might encounter in the process of perseverance, in working through uncertainty towards self-possession—towards clarity and empowerment.

The duo sees their life’s work as a project of mutual empowerment, which has extended from their teenage years—playing open mics, practicing and giving concerts in Gracie’s living room—to their present career, one that has seen them release their debut album to acclaim from NPR (including a Tiny Desk Concert and several best of 2017 lists), Billboard, WFUV, Paste, and ready for their continued evolution together, headed confidently toward the unknown.
