In the lead up to his upcoming run of shows, electro-pop artist Jack Grace has lent us his tasteful wisdom by dropping his top five tracks to listen to on the road. Racking up nearly one million streams online for his EP cuts Hills feat. Buoy and All Lost, Grace has captured the interest of local music blog Indie Shuffle and NYC powerhouse Pigeon & PlanesGrace will be kicking off his national tour on the 25th of February at The Foundry in Brisbane alongside the eclectic PVT. Check out his tour dates below as well as Grace’s ultimate on the road playlist and travel essentials below:

Jack Grace’s ultimate playlist

“When I’m on tour I love putting on my headphones. I tend to gravitate towards music that relaxes me as I get a bit tense while I’m flying”

Shades Lengthen (3rd movement) Edmund Finnis
“I stumbled across this on soundcloud and it completely flawed me. It’s devastating, the constant falling feeling is so well done.”

Day One – Hannah Cameron
“Hannah Cameron is a songwriter out of Melbourne and I’m a big fan. The arrangements are immaculate, feels like being a passenger in a car on a long journey and you completely trust the driver.”

The Magician – Andy Shauf
“If you haven’t heard the album this track is off, you are lucky cause its really good and you haven’t heard it yet. Andy Shauf is one of the few artists out there truly making albums and making every song count.”

Keep – I’lls
“Still one of my fav Aussie bands of all time. Perfect for headphones, perfect for travelling.”

You’re Always – Al C
“Al C is the new moniker and direction of Asdsfr Bawd aka Alex. I love his compositions; I love drifting off to this.”

Pair this up with Grace’s 5 essentials for travelling and you’re good to go:

Earbuds – “Don’t listen to music on planes in headphones, earbuds are the only way imho.”

Sleeping Pills – “Essential”

Apogee One – “Always have so much time to kill and when Porty has had enough of talking to me and wants chill I try and work on music, sometimes successfully sometimes unsuccessfully.” 

Fisherman Friends – “Almost as good as caffeine when you can’t find any.” 

Mineral Water– “Makes even the most uncomfortable moments travelling feel 100 times better.”
