Baeble First Play: The Churning Baroque Intensity Of Gracie and Rachel

    Anybody who's seen Black Swan or the 1948 film version of Hans Christian Anderson's The Red Shoes knows how much drama & intensity are inherent in dance. Dance isn't just about "beauty" (although that can be part of it); it's also about pushing precision and control over the human body to its limits. And in their gorgeous black & white video for "Tiptoe," Brooklyn based baroque pop act Gracie and Rachel deliver on that churning power.

    We're excited to have the exclusive premiere for the video for "Tiptoe." With the turbulent strings of Regina Spektor paired to the orchestral chamber pop of Bat for Lashes, "Tiptoe" is both beautiful and unsettling...and that's just the track. The gorgeous video finds the pair engaging in a ritualistic interpretive dance which fits the dark shadows of the black and white video. File this video under "stunner."
