Golden Scissors



San Francisco-based trio Sammy D, Ryan Williams and Michael Tello, aka PillowTalk, are back with a brand new EP titled “Lullaby.” It comes with three original singles, and we’re precisely in love for the title track from the new work.” Let’s say it is the perfect daytime/nightime/anytime soundtrack for those who are seeking smooth, luscious, and 8os-inspired synth-pop. A truly piece of heaven! Stream here the whole thing, and buy your copy on Phonica Records. So simple, yet so beautiful…

PillowTalk says:

“A swirl of Rhodes, tape delay, and pedals, ‘Lullaby’ is more a dreamscape than a track. Inspired by work from acclaimed illustrator David Polonsky, ‘Lullaby’ is a sonic map of that perpetual dusk in which the tender of heart dwell. Cascading handclaps, delicate bubbles and squeaks, and a characteristically spare kick are cut through by a punchy live bassline that exudes more humanity than a million synthesizers could ever imagine. For a sense of the mood just imagine sweet caresses through a fog that barely obscures your lover’s face, or an old teen romance on faded VHS. When vocalist Sammy D, sounding more pensive and breathless than ever before, obliquely asks an unnamed someone, ‘you’re not a weapon, are you’ one wonders if he’s not thinking about PillowTalk’s own ability to destroy our own expectations about what dance music is supposed to be.”
