“So many great songs have been written about heading out west, not so many about leaving.” So the Brooklyn-based duo, The Bergamot, introduces us to ‘L.A.’, a new single whose release is accompanied by an official video and that introduces their next album, expected for September and produced by Matt Wiggins (Adele, Florence + the Machine, Glass Animals).
Singing the daily story of someone who packs up for a new stage in their life, songwriter spouses Nathaniel Paul and Jillian Speece bring us a slice of life richly imbued with their indie pop style, giving us an immersive moment with an introspective, relaxed, almost dreamy atmosphere.
Moving in a delicate balance between the calls of distant hopes and the weight of harsh reality, ‘L.A.’ slips away almost silently, veiled on a deep, round and reverberating heartbeat. With a luxuriant stratification in a minimal mix, the dynamic of the song pushes a perspective aimed at moving forward, until it finds a final resting point in the harmonies of the final chant.
