Grace Gravity, a band helmed by Teri Hitt on vocals and acoustic guitar and featuring June Kato on bass, James Whelan on keys, Brian David Hardin on drums, and various backing singers — makes an engaging impression with their new album, Dream Analog, a seductive set of songs with a decided allure and intrigue.
Hitt herself is a haunting vocalist, her high pitch delivery often bringing Joni Mitchell to mind. Occasional brass flourishes provide added intrigue, demonstrating the fact that Grace Gravity have both the spark and imagination needed to attract extra attention.
The songs center on a common theme — that is, the perception of what constitutes reality in these uncertain times and how one’s perception of self can help find a center in shifting situations. Keynote song “Whatcha Gonna Do?” provides a propulsive pulse while tracks like “Keep It Together,” “It’s Coming On,” “The Long Road,” Something New Can Grow,” and “Who U R” further affirm that positive perspective and the need to keep that dream — analog or otherwise — alive and thriving. — Lee Zimmerman, GOLDMINE, The Music Collector’s Magazine. https://www.goldminemag.com
