Pizza Daddy unveil track ‘Too Many Boyfriends’
After spending the last 5 years in the London-based dream pop band BOYS, this year the founding members Ross Pearce and Mike Stothard started their new musical project. As the indie pop duo Pizza Daddy, the pair have released their second single – the sunshine-fueled ‘Too Many Boyfriends’.
‘Too Many Boyfriends’ follows on from their previous release ‘Family Time’ and revolves around the worry that someone you’re dating also has other partners on the side. “The song was written about a friend of ours who was dating a girl he really liked, but he kept mentioning he felt like she was dating other people behind his back and had ‘Too Many Boyfriends'”, revealed the band.
Musicially, the new offering from Pizza Daddy would especially delight fans of Beach House, Slowdive and Real Estate. With its sunny tone and compelling riffs, ‘Too Many Boyfriends’ delights your ears from the very start. The track begins with warm guitar riffs and drifting drums, giving you that fun and frivolous summer feeling as the protagonist tries to put pieces of this troubling puzzle together. Yet, the track is definitely more synth-focused than their earlier material. The synth melodies act as the perfect accompaniment to every worrying thought and change of mind.
Also, the track has an exciting vocal style, with Ross Pearce moving from a higher-pitched, dreamy tone to one of defiance and fustration in the chorus. And this pretty much sums up how anyone feels when something doesn’t feel quite right in their relationship, so the changes of pace and emotion have been wonderfully written to suit the predicament. In sum, ‘Too Many Boyfriends’ is a sunny tune where troubling worries pair beautifully with the warmth and changing pace of the guitars and synths.
