Grace Gillespie is a London-based artist and producer originally from Devon, who spent much of 2017 touring as part of 4AD’s Pixx. Her early demo of ‘Restoration’ saw her tipped to Q Magazine by Newton Faulkner and, following re-recording, the track is now set for it’s formal release. Her sound takes influences from the folk, psych and dream-pop traditions, providing a backdrop to her intriguing vocal melodies, shifting harmonies and introspective lyricism.

Take Me To The Country is Grace’s new single and I really like it. The unique melodies showcase many new artistic insights. Moreover, the vocal performance is as expected sublime. Also, I adore the laid-back groove.

Explaining the track’s themes, Grace said: “It is essentially about giving up on music – a thought that I love to torment myself with, but also one which is impossible for me to do. I wrote it at a time when I was feeling the pressure to be a genre artist – which, again, I cannot be. The music I make will always genre hop and there shouldn’t be any problem with that. The track explores this through a longing to be out of the city, to be somewhere calm and where I don’t have to battle against myself.”

Take Me To The Country has all the facets of a modern gem, the sound is captivating until the last second. Be sure to stream it as soon as possible!
