Gracie and Rachel’s new EP Nowhere Now Here out now

Gracie and Rachel are known for pressing back on the boundaries of pop music, their catalog marked by hauntingly spare arrangements, bold, baroque flourishes, evanescent vocal stylings, and penetrative lyrical tact. Nowhere Now Here honors these sonic elements and elevates them, a melodious new vigor coursing through the tracklist, the songs ranging from pointedly delicate to tenderly anthemic.

“The record is an exploration of ‘what if.’ What if we didn’t live together but collaborated from afar, what if we chose synthesizers over pianos, space over strings, to sing to each other rather than with one another. What if instead of being tightly wound, we were in fact just a bunch of loose knots. What if we had no hesitations about taking a chance on going somewhere new, and what if we also had no idea if we were guaranteed a seat at the table when we got there. What if we had no reservations… What if we were nowhere, now here…”

For Gracie and Rachel, separateness was the ultimate risk. But in their uniquely tethered form of brilliance, they embraced it together.
