I’ve featured push baby a few times in the past, but I have to say that this is one of my favourite releases from the act so far.
Now evolved as duo project featuring Jake Roche and Charley Bagnall, ‘Cry/TALK ABOUT IT’ channels the anxiety and hysteria of an episode of poor mental health.
“We hard tuned and distorted parts of the vocal as I wanted to lean away from that clean pop vocal and explore a more left leaning approach; a feeling of hysteria and pandemonium. It feels close to home. I wanted to convey what it’s like going through an ‘episode’ with their mental health and stability. This idea of moments of calm and peace and then lots of overbearing and uncomfortable voices. It’s unlistenable at times I think. But then again on the surface – it’s quite a rather simple structured pop song that if you stripped back – it could be a top 40 pop radio song.” – Jake, push baby
