Having first been charmed by Sheffield band Potpourri through GIHE faves Foundlings when they did a recent Instagram takeover for us, I was super excited to hear that they’ve just announced the release of their debut album. Following debut single ‘Eisenhower’ and acclaim from the likes of BBC 6Music’s Marc Riley, it couldn’t be more welcome.
Taken from the album, latest single ‘Postcards’ is propelled by uptempo saxophone melodies, oozing a sweeping, jazz-infused groove alongside catchy bass hooks and luscious shimmering vocals. Reflecting on the mixed feelings we often have towards our hometowns, delicate harmonies are interwoven with a twinkling emotion, creating a jangly, sun-strewn offering, flowing with a blissful energy that’ll uplift in an instant; leaving you desperate for more of Potpourri’s heavenly sounds.
Of the track, the band expand:
“The song, which started off as a rough scribble of lyrics penned over a pint is a love letter to hometowns and the conflicting feelings we sometimes have towards them…”
First Dance, the upcoming debut album from Potpourri, is out 30th October via Bingo Records.
