Icelandic twin sisters Pascal Pinon just released a video for ‘Bloom’, the new single off ‘Twosomeness‘, an album produced by Alex Somers (Sígur Rós, Jonsí) and filled with delicate melodies and profound lyrics. This new video makes me want to eat candy and cupcakes – not sure it’s because of the pastel colours and subtle superimposition of images or because the song makes me so melancholic that I want some comfort food. Either way, this is a truly touching song and a beautifully made video (directed by the Russian photographer Alísa Kalyanova) and you shouldn’t miss it.
I have had the song “Bloom” by Gypsy & The Cat on constant repeat for weeks now. Can you blame me?
Going back a bit to August, the same Melbourne duo also released a video for the song “Sorry”, which is apparently the first single from the bands’ second album, coming out later this year? Don’t quote me on that.
Check out “Sorry”.
Gypsy & The Cat are a Melbourne duo who’s take on 80’s synth infused take on yacht rock has landed them a lot of attention so far. They’ve received accolades from Neon Gold, a release on Young and Lost in the UK, a slot on a Kitsune Maison compilation, and a spot on the NME Poll for the twenty “most likely”. I think it’s warranted if they can keep making songs like “Bloom”; “a dreamscape ballad with washed out melodies and driving tom-fuelled rock and dance-floor highs”. It was recorded and produced by the band with mixing help via Dave Fridmann (MGMT, Tame Impala).

If only we could go back in time and release this before the summer started. But I guess its coming up on summer in Australia right?
