Based in Brooklyn, New York, Gracie and Rachel have emerged as a formidable force in challenging the boundaries of pop music. Blending baroque elements, ethereal sonic-scapes, and profoundly penetrating vulnerability, the duo creates an emotionally haunting sound all their own. Their sophomore album, ‘Hello Weakness, You Make Me Strong’, was released in September of 2020 on Ani DiFranco’s Righteous Babe Records, drawing fervent enthusiasm from tastemakers including NPR, Flaunt, SPIN, TIDAL, Talkhouse, and more. Having toured extensively with Ani DiFranco, Julien Baker, San Fermin, and more, the collaborative duo of keyboardist, Gracie Coates, and violinist, Rachel Ruggles, have been praised by NPR to “mix pop and classical in stark, infectious ways and make unforgettable, surprising music.” The duo’s new record explores the depths of their emotional states and the walls we build up inside ourselves. It’s music to excavate our inner fears and help us find empowerment from within.
