Living up to the vibrant name, Pizzagirl makes infectious, off-kilter pop that feels like the soundtrack to a forgotten John Hughes movie. With his debut album first timer out today, we caught up with Pizzagirl to find out about his love for colour coordination, sweet pastries and more.
The creative alias of Liam Brown, Pizzagirl offers a kaleidoscopic, effervescent sonic universe to dive into from the instantly nostalgic and endearingly cheesy ‘ball’s gonna keep on rolling’ (you can almost picture the decadent 80s montage going on in the background) to the emotive balladry of ‘yesterday’ or the emo-tinged grooves of ‘dennis’ and much more. It’s an undeniably infectious, jubilant listen and exactly the kind of shimmering pop goodness we need to transport us away from the grey rainy outside.
