Pizzagirl releases new single Body Biology, and announces debut album First Timer.
For any good blockbuster the promo trail starts well in advance, and the lead-up to the highly anticipated debut album from Pizzagirl is no different. Winning critics and audiences over with a dozen tracks across two EPs in 2018, the ever-prolific Pizzagirl, or Liam Brown to give his off-screen name, has fine-tuned his hyperactive DIY-pop to an esoteric art.
The result is First Timer, an album of split-personality genre jumping that’ll have you bopping, laughing and crying before the closing credits.
The first taste of the record is a madcap tale of supermarket romance in body biology, inspired by the bubble, fizz and pop of glam, campy science flicks – think Weird Science, Honey I Shrunk The Kids, Back To The Future. As ever, he’s connecting the dots between John Hughes soundtracks, the introversion of bedroom-pop artists like Clairo, Cuco or Gus Dapperton and the oddball-pop of Ariel Pink across his wide-ranging sound.
“Fun is BACK!” Pizzagirl claims, “I have returned with a glimpse of the first of ten children I have given birth to over a record breaking few months – scientists are angry and doctors cannot believe it! A heartbreak ballad for the shopping aisles, a smash hit for the deli counter, a track just for you at the self-checkout, I introduce to you, ‘body biology’”.
