Vocalising a need to give in to her instincts, North London's Grand Pax creates a cry of electronics and backbeat percussion that's as individual as it is striking on her new track “Lapse”.
Grand Pax is a visionary songwriter and producer backed by independent label Blue Flowers (Westerman and Puma Blue). “Lapse” comes as the flip-side to her acclaimed single “Bunk”, and flows in a similar vein that showers in electronics and trip-hop beats – which have in turn been honed through another collaboration with Leeds collective Gotts Street Park.
Beautifully transparent in her emotions, the track deals with themes of lust and an impatience to give yourself over to the one you want.
“‘Lapse’ is an admission for me, an acceptance of an instinct I found whilst being less careful,” says Grand Pax.
“It’s rooted in a cloudy recollection of encounters with someone I wanted in a real way. It’s slurry and it’s vague but it’s basically saying 'fuck waiting, I want you now'.
“For me, ‘Lapse’ is the clarity I found after the adrenaline moves through you. Like old film, an image or when an idea becomes clear. I knew exactly what I wanted for one second and that doesn’t happen often.”
