“No-one’s bottled 1980s Miami excess quite like Pelicandy” – NME
“Off-kilter sleaze that makes them sound like weird pop rather than straight-up chart filler” – Noisey
“Contagious synth pop brilliance” – The Line Of Best Fit
“Melodic pop-poem” – Clash
“Mesmerising melodic hooks…dreamy synths” – Earmilk
“Swaggers with the confidence of a band that have been doing this for years” – DIY
“With hooks this good it’s hard to ignore Pelicandy’s sweetness” – The 405
Carving out their brand of hook-laden alt-pop amidst a backdrop of soaring soundscapes, London’s Pelicandy share adventurous new effort You and Me Baby and announce debut EP Underlove, set to drop 10th September.
Partnering the unique and unmistakable vocals of TC Beecham with the sound of fastidiously arranged synthesisers and stacked drum machines, the rising duo have been causing intrigue amongst the tastemaker community in recent months (The Line Of Best Fit, The 405) and will play an EP launch show at London’s The Waiting Room on 18thSeptember.
“You and Me Baby is an uninhibited nocturnal dance-floor track taking influence from the more electronic leaning indie bands of the early/mid 2000s”, the two-piece revealed. It’s about meeting someone with such intensity that they shake up reality as you know it. The Bonnie to your Clyde. It was never going to end well”.
With acclaimed recent singles Silent Treatment and White Sky both set to feature onUnderlove, the newcomers are certainly primed to gain further recognition with additional live plans already afoot.
Pelicandy’s You and Me Baby is released 8th August and will be available via all digital platforms.
Pelicandy is TC Beecham (vocals, guitar, synthesiser & keys) and Nick Mills (drum kit, drum programming, backing vocals)
