Gracie Coates and Rachel Ruggles release their first new music in three years with the new song “Trust.”

Simultaneously inspired by the strength of womxn coming forward in the #MeToo movement, Gracie and Rachel wanted to illustrate the ways in which courage can be contagious: “We aimed to create a piece that would embolden someone to find their strength through feelings of doubt.” The video begins with Gracie amidst anguished imagery in black and white, which progresses to color once a television is turned on and Rachel’s empowered choreography is broadcasted, bringing the two together through a screen. With both artists ultimately coming into a shared physical space, whether real or imagined, there’s a sense of belief that in order to persevere we must all trust ourselves.

They have also released the song “Ideas.” Both songs are a preview of their sophomore album coming out on Righteous Babe Records. For info visit https://www.gracieandrachel.com/
