Fushia delicately draw you into their dreamy and poetic universe where crystalline vocals meet technicolour production and powerful drums. The duo comprises two Danish identical twin sisters, Nathalie and Mathilde, who despite having grown up in Denmark, now respectively live in Stockholm and London. Over the last two years, they have created their music by throwing ideas back and forth over the North Sea via Skype, pulling inspiration from their cities’ broad environments and cultures.
Following on from their first foray of 2019, Dreams And Stardust, the sisters reposition themselves in their alt-pop soundscape on Gold, maintaining their trademark sense of cinematic grandeur but applying a level of grit to their crisp production, and bring it into balance with the ominous tones of their transcendent vocals.
“Gold considers that little green-eyed monster inside every single one of us that’s never satisfied. We’ve all heard it, and it’s scary how that voice simply tends to control you more and more once you first start listening to it. We wanted to remind ourselves that life is so much more than what the media – and most of the world around us – tell us. We want to dissociate ourselves from the easy option of just playing along like blindfolded puppets.”
The 22-year-old sisters use their art form to speak out about their relationship with feminism, greed and hopelessness and reflect on how it is to live in a world where people suffocate in possibilities and where time is the most valuable currency. Having often had this recurring daydream of wanting to escape society’s pressures and go hide under a rock, along the way the sisters learned that vulnerability can be just as powerful as strength and that they can use their defiance to create art.
