Pintandwefall share new single/video ‘Short Goodbye’

Pintandwefall’s new album Your Stories Baby out 17th Jan. 2020

With just over a week to go before their new album Your Stories Baby hits your ears and hearts – Pintandwefall share the second taste from their forthcoming long-player in the form of new single ‘Short Goodbye.’  Resonating with hints of brooding yearning and even a touch of nylon string flamenco (eschewing any kitsch characterisation that may bring) – Pintandwefall tell us of ‘Short Goodbye’; “‘Short Goodbye’ explores the eternal effort and worry of trying to be enough. The song has grief in it: giving up on the ideal of being a perfect parent, friend or lover.”

The video for ‘Short Goodbye’ was directed by artist and filmmaker Anna-Mari Nousiainen who tells us of the video’s themes; “The video taps into the hardness of saying goodbye, time that slips between our fingers and feelings we face when change is upon us – and accompanies the sweet yet melancholic feeling of the song. I put together a lo-fi look into fading digital memories, past and present. Material for the video has been collected over eight years and its a peek into a 20 something’s day to day life, a diary of memories and life as a forever changing force”

Pintandwefall return with their sixth studio album Your Stories Baby – released 17th January 2020 via Soliti. The new album, produced by Risto Ylihärsilä, displays the most melodic aspects of Pintandwefall aligned with a playfulness and expanded sound palette. Pintandwefall tell us of the new album; “We have a stubborn need to write music together because we love it.Our sixth album was recorded over three weekend sessions. On the first day of each session we would teach each other the new songs, and on the second our producer would press the rec button already.This was how we were able to preserve the raw joy of new music in each take. Your Stories Baby has been made with love of this adventure.

Reaction to the first single taken from Your Stories Baby –  ‘Ah-Ah-Ah’

“The musical elements are kind of low in the mix, which is perfect, as the track is really all about the vocal elements. I love the lightly angelic tones of the lead voice here, but it wouldn’t be nearly as successful if you didn’t have the chorale atmosphere behind it; its vocal texturing at its very best. Such a powerful number” Austin Town Hall

“Finnish outfit preview their next studio album with this bold and blissful slice of sweeping indie-pop” Mystic Sons

“The band, along with its producer , Risto Ylihärstilä  have clearly succeeded in creating in the studio a light and magical world-class indie feel that brings to mind the classics of the Warpaint band” Päivän Biisit

“The poignant ‘Ah-Ah-Ah’ with its stirring lead vocal and nigh on perfect backing harmonies ” Indie 30
