There is no better proponents of a unique and distinctive style of energised indie folk rock than the Pierce Brothers, and their new single ‘When It All Goes Away’ reveals another more sultry and slow burning side that infuses indelible pop melodies with a sense of yearning and loss.
Jack Pierce says of the track:
We actually put this track together back in late 2019 when we were last in a room together,
and we always loved the vibe but it didn’t really fit the essence of the last album. ‘When It All Goes
Away’ is a deeper dive into pop than we have gone before. It’s a very chill, understated exploration of yearning, longing, and bargaining in the face of a failing relationship.
The track was co-written with artist and producer Garrett Kato (Ziggy Alberts, Julia Stone, Pete Murray) who says:
Writing with the boys is always a treat. They think of songwriting so differently to me, and even to each other. I often need to try and slow them down a bit as their energy is about 10x mine. I am very proud of
this song I worked on with them, it shows a different side of the brothers I think rarely seen and I hope to see more of.
What remains constant is the exquisite and delicate vocals:
Available to download and stream here, the track marks the first in a slew of singles in collaboration with some of Australia’s best artists that also includes Tash Sultana, Steph Strings, Budjerah, and Jan Skubiszewski. The COLLAB EP was thought up during one of the lockdowns faced during COVID, and the majority of the tracks were written over zoom.
