Grace Inspace – Lazy Grace’s Apocalyptic
Kitchen Vol. 1
Grace Inspace - Lazy Grace's Apocalyptic Kitchen
Release Date: Out Now
So, I’m skipping the single review for the final release from this debut EP because, like an impatient child, I just want to get straight to the dessert – the sweet, sticky dessert. This is the debut EP from the superb talent that is Grace Inspace and, as debuts go, it’s one hell of a line in the sand. ‘Tame Teens’ opens up proceedings with it’s dreamy, Susan Vega tones drifting in on a warm, sandy breeze before the chorus kicks up a notch with some sweet rock and triumphant rock vibes. You have our attention, Grace, now what would you do with it?
Well, our attention will now be lavished upon one of the tracks of the year in the form of ‘Watersource’. Unhinged, unpredictable and unparalleled, this song is lighter than air, full of more ideas than most manage in an album and has the kind of hook that radio jingle writers would sell their grandmother’s soul for. The only way to go from now is to break out the Steel Drums I reckon which is exactly what our heroine does on ‘Uncertain, CA’ as the sultry, shoeless number seduces your every sense with summer vibes and the sweetest vocal you could hope for.
The EP closes out with new single ‘Go Slow’ replete with a country meets funk swagger and dreamy vocals that are more stoned than tired. This is a blend of Sheryl Crow, Kimbra, Lana Del Rey and Bran Van 3000 with Gorillaz on production duties. I’m calling it now, this is not only one of the debuts of the year but it’s also nailed on to feature on my shortlist for EP of the year. Full of creativity, joy, life and a sense of adventure, the music of Grace Inspace is exactly what the world needs right now. More, much more, please.
