Having trickled his first few delectable electronic gems out from his bedroom-studio (or ‘Beatzeria’), and into the world via the Power of The Internet, Pizzagirl is almost ready to reveal his debut EP, An Extended Play. Before then though, there is one last taste to be had in the final stand-alone cut Seabirds.
“Wear your freshest life jacket, full steam ahead as we travel at unlimited speeds to the shore of internet, you might become a little woozy from melancholy as you are slippin’ and slidin’ through the radio waves to search for the birds of the digital sea!”
Not a girl, nor having any affiliations with Pizza, Pizzagirl channels through his music and visuals the extroversion of 80s electronica, late 90s internet culture (just check out his website) and US East Coast sad-indie introversion, calling to mind the likes of Porches, Frankie Cosmos or Alex G.
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.
Standing solo on stage, accompanied only by his trusty 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. Pensive pop tunes that’ll be accompanying fellow Liverpudlian dreamers, and label mates, Her’s on their UK tour through April and May.
Seabirds is out 4th April via independent label Heist or Hit, with debut EP An Extended Play to follow on Friday April 13th.
