Jeremy Zucker and Chelsea Cutler together on one exquisitely moving song. Really, need I say more? The world is by far “Better Off” now that the two East Coast singer songwriters and producers have united on the twilight ballad, a heart-string tugging, melancholic stirring lament about star-crossed lovers and calamitous love. Chelsea Cutler’s wispy, supple voice and Jeremy Zucker’s poignant crooning transfix us beautifully from a lush ethereal sonic pasture sown with tender guitar strums and softly chiseled, gently floating beats. A sad yet blissful sigh escapes the lips as the final notes of this impeccable tear-jerker fades away. Better Off is available from major outlets, here.

I’d love to learn how rising bedroom-pop artist pizzagirl came up with his name, but for now, let’s focus on the downtempo analog bliss that exudes from Seabirds, his latest taste from a forthcoming debut EP instead. A hint of early The xx trickles through the song’s tender, airy strums during its opening bars, while some early Youth Lagoon also rears its head in pizzagirl’s misty soundscape. Seabirds’ lo-fi electronica & pop is riddled with syncopated beats that evoke Starfucker, but there’s a starkness to pizzagirl’s vocals that remind me of Majical Cloudz, too. Yes, it’s minimalism is quite misleading, a veil for its eclectic sonic anatomy. The Liverpool artist will be releasing his debut EP, titled An Extended Play, on April 13th. Seabirds is out today via independent label Heist or Hit. Keep up with pizzagirl on his website, here.
