Australian pop duo consisting of best friends Stefan Blair and Liam Parsons have today shared their brand new singles ‘Real I’m Told’ and ‘One Night’ via Polyvinyl Records. Experimental in essence, Real I’m Told is a joyous 2 minute bop featuring heavy in soft percussion, intricate layering and playful sounds. Speaking about the single Stefan says: “’Real I’m Told’ was written in late 2020. I was living in a small town about an hour outside of Melbourne, and going through a pretty rough patch. I was drinking quite a bit and making some poor decisions that were definitely affecting the people around me. ‘Real I’m Told’ is about contending with the idea that if I consider myself a decent person who strives to do good things for myself and the people around me, how could I keep behaving in a way that was kind of heartless and irresponsible?”. On the flip side, One Night offers up further dynamics to their sound with sultry melodies and warming vocals. Explaining further, Liam goes on to say Liam: “Lyrically I’m not fully sure what it’s about yet, but I’m pretty sure it comes from dreams; both the wiggy ones during sleep and the aspirational ones during the day. The ‘yet another show about the Cold War’ is almost certainly The Americans, which I watched a season and a half of. Good reminder to go back and finish it, maybe?” Take a listen for yourselves below.
