Immersing yourself in a contrasting environment sometimes leads to a whole new branch of art within your chosen medium. In the case of New York based Gracie and Rachel, the duo originates from California, fusing the calmness of the Pacific with the chaos New York can imprint on a mind. Their latest video for the track “(Un)comfortable” is a melancholic black and white four minutes, driven by both rich, layered violins (provided by Rachel), and ethereal vocals. The video displays both Gracie and Rachel, but they are never acting together, essentially existing on different planes. It’s a needed look at coexisting, the act of being supportive but separate as well.
Regarding the video, Rachel added, “Gracie’s perpetual motions are shown as both fractions and extensions of herself that may want to hold her back but ultimately can propel her forward. Without tangibly interacting, the varying entities guide one another through the acceptance of different forces.” The two met at a dance class in high school, and this extra talent in their life shines through– their motions are effortless and poised, exactly what their music exudes.
