Opening with the abstract nostalgic sampling of ‘ALHOP’, Jack Grace slowly instils rhythm through the outset, steadily building through percussion and a majestic synth. Lamenting the trials of intimacy based anxiety, ‘US’ is a softer, more subtle take on late-era UK club music, with Chicago footwork-esque reconstructed beats, understated piano and skilful vocal cuts. Waiting exhibits Jack Grace’s instrumental prowess, slowly unfolding into a downtempo deep house cut, while ‘BE4UGO’ is a brittle, romantic account that pieces together obscure tonal elements.

‘Downstate’ is a downtempo blend of immersive sonic tapestries, ethereal vocals and imagination invoking lyrics that allude to nostalgic feelings and the absence of home comforts, while ‘IF I TREMBLE’ embodies a harmonious, ghostly ballad that employs deft vocal sampling and uplifting chord patterns. Closing with ‘Row Me Home’, a stunningly simplistic piano led composition that employs gorgeous field recordings and abstract, autotuned harmonies, Jack Grace’s ‘IF I TREMBLE’ EP is a fascinating look into one of Australia’s most impressive songwriting talents.
