Grace Gillespie, Take Me To The Country Review
Originally from Devon, now based in London, Grace Gillespie grew up in an idyllic setting, she explains “I grew up in Devon not far from the sea. Music was a big part of my life from very early on – I was lucky enough to attend a primary school where music was high on the agenda.” To date, Gillespie has enjoyed an EP titled Restoration that released in June of 2019 and a second EP Omey that hit retail outlets in September of 2019, just in time for the fall season Gillespie puts forth the folk-dream pop single “Take Me To The Country.” A tasty listen with hauntingly beautiful introspect.Positives: Gillespie has an entrancing sound, her soft yet focused voice penetrates immediately. The tenderness of her voice caresses each note with a gentle finesse that gets to the core of the lyrics. Bottom Line: Influenced by the folk, psych and dream-pop genres, her intriguing voice offers a lyricism that is almost mystic in its reading. There is a buoyancy in her upper register that floats atop the melody with shifting harmonies and pensive lyricism. “Take Me Back To the Country,” has a retro 70s vibe with a psychedelic aesthetic mixed with folk sensibilities. The icing on the experience is Gillespie’s voice, captivating throughout. That’s the short of it!
