visuals will debut on thesongsays with his beautifully well-rounded novella of an ep, the state of things. the label has long focused on the romantic and conceptual currents of dance music and visuals joins the tight-knit roster with three stunning songs that perfectly fit the thesongsays ethos while bringing together the diverse elements of his musical background.
the latest from thesongsays brings back one of our main players - bruno pronsato. whats he been up to you might ask? aside from completing his album lovers do, working on music with thomas melchior and daze maxim and putting out records as pubic lover with our leading lady ninca leece, not much… maybe hes been in the rafters sipping coffee or understudying for bigger roles. who knows. nonetheless he’s back. these two new tracks come from his upcoming lp, lovers do. its a single, sort of. but not really. because when has bruno ever done a single like we know a single? this 12-inch is about as far as you could get from club fodder. rather, its a pair of subtle grooves to soundtrack you cutting carrots, sipping whiskey, or dancing at some intimate afterhours spot
the musique d hiver pour l ete is all about warm instrumentation with a special emphasis on an intentional lo-fi production. it might even be a statement in an age of digitalism and overproduction. it rides the line between romantic techno and sultry disco!
the make up the break up is the first release on bruno pronsatos own thesongsays label. its the longest track in his catalog (38 minutes), and an even deeper excursion into his stylized harmony. this track was originally a track uncompleted while making, æwhy cant we be like us. revisiting it roughly a year ago, bruno began to reword it. what began as simple attempt to create an ep track out of it became a monster. what monster you ask? in a few words, the monster that is brunos love of musicality and sound design. muscially speaking, we are on a ride somewhere between a slithery house track and a drugged out night out in chelsea, new york in the 60s - and thats a good thing because we get the entirety of the ride: the ups, the downs, the clouded mentality, the broken heart and perhaps the mended one. its happy, its sad - its something that you can dance to, but most importantly, its music that we think you can revisit for many years, as it somehow reflects us, our lives. a playful and extended journey through love and disaster, or at least the soundtrack to it.
public lovers debut album, a broken shape of you, shows bruno pronsato and ninca leece doing what they do best: electronic avant-pop with a playful touch of romance. the album comes third in their short catalogue, after last falls musique dhiver pour l ete, released on pronsato’s label, thesongsays, and naked figures, a more upbeat but equally elegant effort for telegraph. both records revealed public lover to be something rather fresh: an electronic duo that has both production savvy and lyrical finesse. with a broken shape of you, this budding dynamic reaches maturity, creating what is surely one of the best albums of the year.
