Grace - Single Review: Echo Thoughts

29 May 2020 // A review by Corinne Rutherford

Young bedroom music producer from Auckland, Grace has just released the first track from her EP Music From The Cupboard. Echo Thoughts is a captivating track of ethereal vocals enveloped in a luscious techno beat.

The 22 year old singer-songwriter producing Electronic Indie Pop from her bedroom cupboard, has quietly been working on her skills as a producer since winning the Lion Foundation Song writing Competition back in 2015.

Grace's music is often a journal of her life experiences, and this is no exception capturing the emotion felt after a break up; "Echo Thoughts captures the rawness of the emotion in this time, juxtaposing feeling with fear". What I really enjoyed about this track is seamless merging of soft, hazy otherworldly vocals with smooth guitar and a tidy beat.

As a true solo artist, Grace also writes, produces, films and edits all her own material. When she is not making music, she is working as a Civil Engineer.

If Echo Thoughts is anything to go by, her EP Music From The Cupboard will definitely be on my radar as one to watch out for.

Rating: ( 5 / 5 )

10 Sep 2020 // by Corinne Rutherford
Auckland based Cantabrian, disillusioned architect and sausage roll enthusiast Harry Platt who goes under the pseudonym Hazza Making Noise, has just released a new single called Boomers In Disguise. Cross a football chant with a rock opera and inject it with punk-rave then you will have a fair idea about the unique concept which Harry describes as having "an early Arctic Monkeys – Brianstormesque nature to it".
