Lost In Space
The latest single from Memory Flowers reaffirms my suspicion that this artist is champion of an underrepresented genre - call it dreamy-farewell-pop?
It’s soul-searching stuff, but not in a depressing way. The magical acoustic core of the track is Pisanu’s signature, but unlike some of his other music, it’s layered with a space-age twist, which gets more intense as the song goes on. I haven’t had long enough to work out the meaning, but it’s there in bucket-loads, undoubtedly. Set on repeat play. What carries this indulgent music, though, are his extraordinary vocals, brilliantly in between a dreamy ballad and soulful rock.
I’m reluctantly beaming back down from this extraordinary interplanetary experience for the time being - “Please tell the aliens I said hi”.
