Chris Pidsley's Brand Of Heartfelt Of Pop Songs
Dropping a string of singles throughout 2020, artist Chris Pidsley certainly isn't new to releasing pop song after pop song and bringing a new edge each time he does it.
The artist's latest is a wonderfully woven track called "Listen To Your Mum" and it's complete with a catchy groove, loads of musical and vocal hooks, and is packed with some great instrumentation from piano and acoustic guitar, to trumpets.
The song is a sweet and tasteful one that incorporates acoustic pop with indie-pop and gives all the bells and whistles you can want from a great pop song.
An auto-tune breakdown, building percussion, and a bit of a genre bending aspect that brings folk, pop, and R&B together at times creating something pretty fresh and bright.
The track is colorful and feels alive and breathing while it's slightly laid back groove keeps things alluring and fun.
What's possibly even better is the music video for the song which ends up being one of the more quirky and creative videos you've seen in a while as three Chris Pidsley's mess with each other as they perform the song between three cell phone screens.
The video goes incredibly well with the aesthetic of the song somehow and it all falls together with a brilliant and ultra creative undertone that's tough to beat.
"Listen To Your Mum" is a great follow up to some of his previous singles like "Cinnamon" that feels more jazzy and contemporary.
There is even a gorgeous ballad called "What Makes You Beautiful" that can pull at your heart strings and gives off a strong cinematic and distant vibe.
Pidsley is full of surprises and showcases his songwriting variety in a fun and heartfelt way.
