Multi-instrumentalist and producer duo Nikò O’Brien and Hannah (Jakes) Jacobs aka pecq return with a brand new single and accompanying music video titled “It’s a Lie”. The new song follows their previous “Brittle” EP released earlier this year.
It’s the first time we’re hearing pecq and their dreamy soundscapes and we are instantly falling in love with them. On their new single, pecq delivers a shimmering electronic production with beautiful and lush vocals provided by Jakes. The DIY music duo has created a perfect slice of alternative pop that we can’t get enough of. About the new single Jakes says:
‘It’s A Lie’ is about breaking out of a manipulative relationship and reprogramming your own identity, inspired by my experiences with cult environments and controlling people (plus a little bit of 11 and 1 in Stranger Things). I don’t know if I’ll ever fully reclaim my sense of self but I wanted to capture the power of starting to hear and trust your own voice again.
We are sure these two are destined for big things and we can’t wait to see what else pecq has in store for us!
“It’s a Lie” is out now on all platforms via Upcycled Sounds.
