Introducing Pizzagirl: Hear debut track ‘Favourite Song’
CLASH premiere debut single Favourite Song by 80s pop misfit Pizzagirl.
The debut single from Pizzagirl, Favourite Song is a moodily infectious invitation into the Liverpool lo-fi pop artist’s polychromatic world. Not a girl, nor having any affiliations with Pizza, Pizzagirl’s music ranges from quirky, ironic, 80s informercial-esque pop to darker and more introspective, European influenced electronica.
Pizzagirl, or Liam Brown to give his citizen name, crafts light-hearted emotional vignettes equal parts American East-Coast sad-indie, and gloomy British wit, all delivered fresh from his Aintree bedroom.
It’s a small operation. With the help of a thrown together flatpack mini studio, Pizzagirl writes, records and produces all of his music and visuals from the comfort of his home. His best mate shoots his videos and his mum takes his press shots.
“‘Favourite Song’ is my attempt at making a tune that would fit nicely in a Miami Vice/Blade Runner soundtrack” elaborates Pizzagirl “Lyrically, it’s themed around being nostalgic, and seeing a certain person and time through a rose tinted camera lens . Ideally listening to it in 1989 would be best, but as long as you’re cruising down the city streets in a convertible at night then you should hopefully enjoy it just the same.”
Armed on stage with a single Pizzahat and laptop, Pizzagirl displays the lonesome idiosyncrasies of an introvert married with the larger than life extroverted nature implied by his eccentric, zany and often pensive pop tunes.
