Equal parts charming and cutting, Dublin-based trio Pixie Cut Rhythm Orchestra‘s latest single ‘I Didn’t Love You When I Said I Did and I Don’t Now’ is a swirling lament to the moment when you realise a relationship is ultimately beyond saving. Released via Anon Records and recommended to us by fellow Irish musician Fears, the band blend shimmering guitars, urgent vocals and poignant lyricism to reflect the frustrations and uncertainties that come with this unwanted epiphany.
Formed of Sarah Deegan (songwriter/guitarist), Alice Grollero (bassist) and Danni Nolan (drummer), Pixie Cut Rhythm Orchestra met via Dublin’s underground & DIY music scenes and began writing music together inspired by the sounds of Mitski, Courtney Barnett and Angel Olsen. The band deliver their observations on life with a raw sincerity, with Deegan’s distinctive voice leading the charge on ‘I Didn’t Love You When I Said I Did and I Don’t Now’.
The track is accompanied by a video, shot and edited by artist Hollie Gilson, reflecting the irritation, resentment and reluctance that follows the point of no return after a breakup. To take the edge off, they’ve also shared some fun ‘Behind The Scenes’ footage that you can watch here too.
