GRAE: “Permanent Maniac”

Posted by on Sep 7, 2020

For bedroom producers, a world in isolation isn’t all that different from the norm. Just look at Toronto alt-pop multi-instrumentalist GRAE, who recently released her sophomore EP, Permanent Maniac, created in the comfort and safety of her own home.

Alongside the record’s remaining five songs, the album opener and title track came packaged with a half-animated/half-live action video filmed right where the EP was recorded. And even if you’re not the biggest Smiths aficionado, you’ll find something that resonates with you in this upbeat yet anguished love letter to fellow weirdo Robert Smith, “Permanent Maniac”.
