Reliably informed

North East artist Tired Trace, otherwise known as Jake Anderson, has mixed trip-hop and synth pop vibes to create an unusual EP.

Alongside a gloomy atmosphere and trance-like ambience this, unlike his previous musical ventures, contains spoken elements. Each track explores its own narrative, ranging across numerous topics including fear of intimacy, nihilism and relationships. Introducing the EP is a ‘radio show’ discussion of his prior work suggesting it to be “dreadful”; this opening track is a vulnerable display of self-criticism, exploring the worldwide pandemic of artists doubting themselves. Across the six tracks there are three collaborations with other artists (Yes Plant, Cameron Scott and Alana Wan) which each bring their own creative energy, culminating in a unique listening experience.
