New music is constantly evolving, some purposefully and to some extent blindly fitting into a genre – others completely uninspired and some that are just unlistenable and to put it bluntly shit but David Bird’s music (the man behind PEPEPIANO) is neither of those. Forcing together genres that wouldn’t typically fit is the beauty he rightfully masters. Any types of clichés are avoided to create something new to brace your ears.
Experimenting with chillwave, ambient and glitch, PEPEPIANO almost creates an imaginary battlefield within each song as different sounds react with one other, striving to dominate the song’s core. Each featured synth releases emotions of happiness or dizziness, from amidst layers of white noise and choir. “No way” (the track it all started with) creates a lighters-in-the-air mood, and lyrics that certainly aren’t something you’d hear every day: “maniac mechanics boasting false teeth for lepers / They’re hysterically endowed, infectious blue eggs for the oil men.”
Why not hear from the man himself about what you can download below:
FRIENDS AND LOVERS—
I’M PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THE COLLECTED CULMINATION OF RECENT EFFORTS IN THE FORM OF THE FOLLOWING SELF-TITLED FULL LENGTH. OVER THE MONTHS I’VE GARNERED MY TAPES, SMASHED MY MOOG, WHACKED OUT MY CHILDHOOD PLAYSCHOOL TAPE PLAYER AND LOST A ROOMMATE TO THE INCESSANCY OF ROUTINE MIXING. BUT AS ALWAYS, I HAVE TAKEN THE NOT-AT-ALL UNPRECEDENTED STEP OF PROVIDING THIS ALBUM COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE.
SEND IT TO YOUR BROS AND LOVE SHARKS.
WITH UNFLAGGING LOVE AND AFFECTION,
Summary: An amalgamation of different genres in a pot of love.
For fans of: Wu Lyf, Sun Ra, Teen Daze
