Following on from last year's much-loved EP 'Zero Vulnerability', which featured stripped back songs from his self-titled 2019 debut album, One True Pairing has now returned to deliver a pair of new singles.
The new tracks 'Golden Arches' and a cover of the Beverly Glenn-Copeland classic 'Ever New' marks his first pieces of new material so far this year, and come accompanied by a pair of live performance videos, directed by Glynn Bolter and Björn Bjornsson, and filmed at London’s Snap Studios with his live cohort Josh Taylor-Moon.
Speaking about 'Golden Arches', he said, “Golden Arches is a song of escape and a song of possibility. Built from a load of software loops during hot days spent inside, dreaming of the drizzling open road, it went from bedroom to studio alarmingly quickly. I make no apologies for it being hugely romantic and escapist, I’m always grubbing down in the dirt, trying to make the flowers grow.”
While adding about the rendition of 'Ever New', “Ever New’ is a song I love deeply by Beverly Glenn-Copeland, which coincidentally got a rerelease between myself tracking this and releasing it. It is a record that’s given me great solace and sounded a note of hope with me, and I hope I have done it some justice - the beauty and simplicity of the original reduced me to rubble.”
