Today we are pleased to join forces with WA duo Champagne Sunday for the premiere of their new single “Pocket”. The languid, sensual bass-driven atmospherics found on Scour seem beamed from hedonistic alternate future, as the bands steamy trip-hop and R&B infused melodic explorations wind their way into the center of your id.
Recorded at Studio Litho in Seattle, as well as Shabby Road Studios and End of Saints Studios in the UK, each song on Scour feels like a whispered admittance. Something born of the dark, in the most private of places. Imbued with the power that comes from opening up and being vulnerable, the record is a reminder that we’re all busted up somehow.
About the song, the band comments “Pocket was written years ago in Southern, CA. Originally composed on a piano with a very blues-ballad delivery, 2020 called for a musical makeover. When brought to Javier Garavito, producer for Scour and bassist on the EP, he immediately sat down and began jamming on a new bass line. Jared jumped in with some atmospheric electric guitar and it all just gelled. The bridge was really important to me (Jessi) because I heard a very specific delivery for it in my head. I wanted an almost robotic monotone approach because it is in such opposition with the very human open-heart delivery of the song. I had to write the last verse right there and then because we were just so in the moment. It came out almost by the time the song got to that point. It was what I needed to do for 17 years and it finally came out.”
