London electronic pop duo pecq unveil a mesmerizing new single today, ‘out loud’. It’s the follow-up to their ‘Amnesia’s Ritual’ EP shared earlier this year and marks the first taste of a forthcoming project slated for release in 2024.
pecq consistently delivers innovative pop music and continually expand their soundscape with each new release. ‘out loud’ stands out as another lush and soothing track that captivates from start to finish. The emotive songwriting, paired with Jake’s mesmerizing vocals, seamlessly intertwines with a thrilling production. The song takes us on a journey, gradually transitioning from atmospheric sounds to a climactic blend of warped drum & bass influences.
About the new single they mention:
“‘out loud’ is about not being able to tell someone how you feel about them. As a queer kid with loads of immune problems, I learnt to pretty early on hide a lot of myself for self-preservation and music was always my place to get stuff out. This song is reflecting on the weight of repeatedly keeping things secret and I guess acknowledging that it doesn’t really work – feelings get stranger and bigger the longer you bury them, and grow into a force of their own that moves you forward whether you like it or not.
We wanted to create that feeling of this hidden things trying to creep out – there’s lot of little moments of peaks trying to rise up and then getting cut down, drums trying to settle and then getting broken up.”
