Raised in Los Angeles as the middle child of four siblings, Gracie Gray was homeschooled from elementary to high school, and began touring with a band while attending the Bob Cole Conservatory for Classical Voice in 2016.
“alienlover” - the first single to appear from Gray's anna LP, out 4th February 2022 on Hand In Hive Records - provides the perfect introduction into Gray’s musical world, where lo-fi bedroom production - all her own work across the accompanying album - sits alongside warm, catching synth lines and moments of dark and brooding atmosphere for fans of Skullcrusher, Mazzy Star, Lala Lala and Lomelda. All of this topped with a delicate yet commanding vocal, honed while studying opera at college.
The forthcoming album follows 2019’s self-released Oregon In A Day, which picked-up praise from LA Weekly and IMPOSE, and sees Gray move the listener with a combination of sombre, slow-burning bedroom-rock (“happiness” / “don’t you agree”), floating, heartwarming indie-pop (“anna” / “dig”) and classic acoustic songwriting (“warm the beach”). It’s a record “about holding onto love for yourself through all of life’s changes. It looks at many huge shifts in a short period of time, and each track tries to make sense of how all relationships seem to fade, while promising to try in spite of it all.”
“A hazy indie pop daydream”
