Later this month, we’ll get the self-titled debut album from Gracie and Rachel. Arriving June 23rd, the new album fully realizes the duo’s contrasting styles, which somehow pair incredibly well together. It’s a mixture of pop music with classical training built from Gracie’s piano and lead vocals and Rachel’s violin and voice, augmented with stark percussion. Today, we premiere the lyric video for the duo’s newest song, “It’s Time”.

The video’s creators worked with the band over Google Hangout calls to create this visual narrative. The song expresses a frustration with being controlled and an adamant readiness to stand up and make a change. The imagery shows someone who is covered in sand and slowly works to break free. We see a body walking around in sort of robotic, mindless ways throughout and, ultimately, we see that body dancing wildly. The piece asks us to have critical conversations with ourselves, to recognize societal paralysis. It works to challenge the idea that there are only the options we are dealt in which we must choose from. It’s time to break free and dance our own dance.
