    Perth electro-pop artist Grace Sanders is set to release her debut EP, GUMS, on February 26th - but if you're looking to get a sneak peek at the project, we're premiering it right now!

    Speaking about the EP, Grace says that she's proud of the range of sounds on the project. "Ezekiel and I approach each song as its own thing, stripping back all the elements and allowing inspiration to flow for whatever the emotionality of the song is calling for to make it come to life in its own unique way."

    The EP opens with MISSED CALLS, which is a layered collection of voice messages left for Grace. It's pretty hectic, and a great way to introduce the organised chaos of the EP that's set to follow. The layers of voice messages quickly spiral out of control, and you'll find yourself trying to find your grounding - then the track finishes, leaving you spinning.

    GUMS features tracks like the previously released GREEN, which mixes psychedelic sounds and electro-pop, as well as CALLING MY MOTHER, a bouncy R&B/soul track that also includes a verse from Perth-based rapper Adrian Dzvuke. His smooth vocals add to the track's vibe, and it's one of the highlights of the EP.

    Despite the track's bouncy production, CALLING MY MOTHER is actually a song about Grace losing a friend, and you can feel the pain in her voice. It's an interesting contrast between the lyrics/vocals and the mood of the instrumentation. This dichotomy is a running theme throughout the EP, like on SANITY, where Grace reaches out to those who are currently working on their mental health, and encouraging them to keep going. It's a poignant, slow-burning track - but it takes a careful listen to the lyrics to truly grasp the weight of Grace's vocals.

    Check out GUMS above. We've been hearing singles from Grace for a little while, but her debut EP shows off her vision as an artist, and it's exciting to imagine where things are going to go next. The range of sounds means things are always kept interesting, and you'll find yourself guessing what the next song will sound like, right until the very end.
