song: "Picturesong" - Girlpool
In what's a true dream pairing alert, Girlpool has teamed up with Dev Hynes for the mysterious and smooth "Picturesong". Hynes provides keyboards, guitars, backing vocals, and mixing to this track, enlivening the duo's sound to new heights. Fluttering instrumentals and repetitious buzzing patterns of guitars, keys and drums begin the single, before Cleo Tucker and Harmony Tividad step in, their voices blending perfectly into one magnetic presence. Hynes' backing falsetto is barely audible, with the artist also known as Blood Orange, provides a hushed presence. The trio works in harmony, leading viewers towards breaking point of fuzzy, riotous noise, their voices all laid atop; a lush presence in an otherwise chaotic, enduring finish.
