Taylor Pearlstein shares the first single from her recently announced forthcoming EP Perfect Blue. ‘Sandman’ is an ethereal work, reminiscent of the intricate sounds of artists such as Weyes Blood and Phoebe Bridgers. Pearlstein says this of the track:
“We start with ‘Sandman,’ asking for the comfort of a lie. When our reality disturbs us, we turn to fantasy. And when we become most comfortable in a lie, we are capable of anything.”
Perfect Blue tells a disorienting story of self-delusion, reality weaving, and over-romanticizing to the edge of our own destruction and misery. This five track EP wastes no time diving deep into our dark desire to be wanted, purely and perfectly. With intentionally oversaturated and distorted orchestration shifted against an exposing reality, we struggle to parse what is real from fabrication.
