band crush: py
a british musician who's about to blossom.
For the London-based musician, it's a metaphor that plays out quite literally in her beautifully soulful new single "Polyethers," which comes out June 30. The song features Py's richly textured voice referencing summertime and fresh-cut flowers as the accompanying beats blossom on loop. And if that's not enough for you, the Portishead-meets-CocoRosie track is accompanied by a music video (shot by Tia Dunn) of Py covered in a technicolor wash of florets.
And just like the organic materials, it's this sense of patterns--birth, growth, death--that she taps into. "The song is about being in a cycle, trapped in cycles of someone. Whether that's making love, fighting, growing together; I saw a mirror of this in the cycle of plants. So the video is really centered around those two things mashed together," she explains.
You can see what she means below--we've got the exclusive premiere. And then stay tuned for what Pybus dubs "a very exciting collab, which you will hear soon--wheeee!" That's followed by a second single in August and a handful of shows this summer. It seems that if anyone is about to blossom this summer, it's Py.
