Liverpool alt-pop icon Pizzagirl reveals technicoloured electro stomper Bullet Train, the second taste of upcoming album Softcore Mourn.
The effervescent follow-up to melancholic opener Car Freshener Aftershave, turning every dial up to 10 in the sonic and aesthetic stakes. A chugging synth bassline underpins the anthemic track, whilst electronic instrumentation strobes in and out. The primary coloured production belies more downbeat themes.
Or… as Pizzagirl succinctly puts it: “Here’s my second single ‘Bullet Train’, another breakup song I think, but this time, at 200mph. I sound really bitter on this, and for good reason I’d say, my screen time is high, my battery is low and there’s no 5g at the end of this tunnel; haha 😉”.
Perpetually ensconced in the fault-lines between warm humanity and binary technology, pitting maximalist-pop sounds against claustrophobic production, Pizzagirl delves deeper into the emotional hard-drive on Softcore Mourn.
