Brooklyn’s lo-fi artist pronoun is back with ’you didn’t even make the bed’, a catchy new single off her forthcoming record.
“I wrote this when I got home after an ex had just moved out and left it kind of a mess,” pronoun says of the single, “when I just wanted to scream at the sky, when it was the final straw. It transitions from the sad, defeated phase of a break up in to the angry one. This whole record addresses that phase, the one where you’re like “really…REALLY?!”.
If you haven’t heard of pronoun, you’re certainly missing out. Her debut EP, ‘There’s no one new around you.’ (an ode to the Tinder message you get when you’ve run out of just that, anyone new) was released in 2016, and is a collection of four tracks that toe the delicate balance between over-produced synths and quiet vocals. This release is quite consistent with everything on that EP, blending dreamy, synth-style guitars and poppy backbeats with dramatic, relatable lyrics that stick with you even after you’ve turned it off.
Having just come off a local summer tour with Citizen and oso oso, pronoun prepares to hit the road again, this time joining Justin Courtney Pierre of Motion City Soundtrack for a few stateside shows. She’ll also be making her overseas debut as well, joining the Wonder Years, Movements, and Mayday Parade for a couple UK dates in February. Her debut album is due out sometime in spring 2019, and we can only imagine that it’ll be as ear-worthy as this.
