The universe works in mysterious ways. It’s a bit of a cliché but it is completely true. Coincidence, serendipitous moments of good fortune, connections and links; there are many that believe wholly in fate, destiny and the power of the great unknown and often, despite your misgivings it can be hard to disagree. Small things, minute details that can spark a feeling of familiarity or contentment, sometimes even unease and foreboding.
The former was the case this week when shortly after discussing murder as a hobby with the mysterious Black Honey, we were contacted by another band with a connection to the dark art of death. Though to be fair Pink Murder sounds a whole lot brighter and more jovial than just bumping people off to kill (ahem) time. Unless the link refers to a genocide of Barbies and My Little Ponies of course, but we digress.
Comprised of Mike Panico from Stargazy (who we have featured a fair bit on the site in one incarnation or another), Jen Pague from Vita and the Woolf and Gregory Free from Folding Legs, Pink Murder are very new, very exciting and we are delighted to be bringing you their first ever track to kick off your Friday.
“Fresh And Made” is a blissfully summery three minutes of hazy pop music. The synth lines dance like dragonflies amongst reeds as Jen’s vocals drifts effortlessly as a silk scarf lost to the gentle breeze. Carefree it floats, caressing the sky as it is buffeted on calm gusts of rhythm and melody, carrying you with it on a sun-drenched journey to wherever the universe will take it. Like its name, it feels fresh and wonderful, a gorgeous waft of warmth and well-being, enriching and soothing like an elixir for the soul. As you listen you just want to lay back, give a big sigh of contentment and peace as the sun shines down and you can just relax and let the world carry on without you.
Give it a go, no-one will mind, take a listen and drift off to your happy place. It’s what the universe wants…
