I was utterly entranced with Pitou when I discovered her music last year. The Dutch singer-songwriter uses her voice as a melodic patchwork quilt for her world-influenced folk music. Pitou has returned with a beautiful new single ‘Devote’ which features a lightly waltzing beat, delicate harp and sumptuous angelic vocals. The track runs at 60 beats per minute as if to evoke time passing you by, which is one of the main messages of the song.
Time is also a theme in Pitou’s forthcoming album ‘Big Tear’. The album sees Pitou exploring new instrumentation, moving away from guitars and towards piano, harp, synth and software to create intricate worlds. Whilst time may be ticking, Pitou says the album is also a positive one that encourages the listener to keep searching for the good in the world.
Enjoy the artistic music video for ‘Devote’ below, the single is out now. ‘Big Tear’ is being released on the 24th March and looks set to be a musical beacon of light in what already feels like a heavy year. ‘Big Tear’ is available for pre-order/save now.
