We absolutely fell in love with the London based indie electronic duo, Vaarwell, earlier this year when they dropped “fall back.” When it comes to singer/producer combos, what comes to mine is often Phantogram, Marian Hill, Purity Ring. Vaarwell definitely deserves to be among those ranks, delivering dreamy, ethereal vocals that are lined with a thick, satisfying production.
Vaarwell recently shared a new song titled, “consume,” which is part of their upcoming EP, Consume & Grow. Here’s what the Margardia, the vocalist of the two, had to say about writing the track:
[“consume”] was born from my anxieties as an older sister to three young girls. I’m very close to my siblings (all females so the sisterhood is strong) and a particular conversation with my older sisters about the future of the young ones and entering young adulthood made me worry about everything – who they will become, the decisions and inevitable mistakes they will make, the people who they will hang out with … I felt the need to write a cautionary song, something to remind [them] about growing slowly and calmly in order to achieve a strong, happy and mature growth, how they shouldn’t feel the need need to rush into things or change to be accepted…
You can listen to “consume” below. Consume & Grow will be out some time in June, so stay tuned. Enjoy!
