Introducing… Pitou

Dutch traveller merges worldly influences into her own indie folk genre.

Pitou’s new single ‘Dancer’ is one of the most hypnotic and intriguing singles I’ve heard in 2022. Lacing together harp and guitar melodies and backing it up with distant faded vocals and muted and muffled percussion, Pitou has a simple message. Push yourself into the light. She says that sometimes pulling yourself from darkness to light and back again can feel quite violent. With her single ‘Dancer’, Pitoh would like that transition to be more graceful – like a sweet surrender.

Pitoh is based in Amsterdam and found a love for classical music at a young age. She was privileged to be able to travel and visit various different places as a child but it was the tapes of music her parents brought back from each location with them that helped Pitou experience different musical cultures. It wasn’t until much later at 18 that she discovered pop and rock and wanted to merge those genres with all the classical and worldly influences she’d experienced as a child.

Enjoy the video for ‘Dancer’ below, the single is out now. Pitou is working on her debut album, expected for 2023. For more information visit her website for the best place to keep in touch.
