Grace Inspace has been releasing singles (and creative music videos) at a steady clip since this time last year, when she shared the energetic track “Last Girl.” A year later, she’s assembled all of these recordings for her debut EP Sunshine Kid, which dropped back in September and features contributions from the likes of Luna Li, Hope Tala, Zach Dawes, Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders, and producer John King.
For her recent “Neighborhoods” session filmed in her backyard in Altadena, California—just north of Pasadena in LA county, “where NASA has a base and people ride their horses to the grocery store!”—Inspace plays through EP cuts “25” and “Redwood Curtain" with her band (Jacob Somerscales on drums, Rob Aragon on guitar, and Zack Zito on bass). “I chose these two songs because they best represent the scope of Sunshine Kid and the duality of my experience making music. ‘25’ I wrote in London and finished in LA; it’s a tongue-in-cheek confessional about navigating the music industry and all its inequalities, and ‘Redwood Curtain’ I wrote and produced alone living in an isolated cabin in the middle of the Redwood Forest—an ode to the lessons and magic to be found in loneliness.”
