Naarm/Melbourne artist Eaglemont (the nom de plume of Bridgitte Jessop) delivers a soaring melodic pop delight with her refreshing new single ‘Vodka Pineapple’: a shimmering pop master class that is brimful of melancholic effervescent. Eaglemont perfects a radiant jingle jangle style with the crisp guitars and a chorus that soars like an eagle in the bright blue skies: a prefect embodiment of antipodean indie pop that also has echoes of artists like Alvvays and Hatchie.

Jessop says of the track:

‘Vodka Pineapple’ is inspired by a painful realisation I had where I was the protagonist in the downfall of my relationships and it was all my fault… and then somehow we turned it into a pop song.

In line with the thread that runs through the entire record it’s a glorified diary entry that recounts events, often with haunting hindsight. Not that you should use creating art as therapy singularly (you should probably just go to therapy).

The pop brilliance of the track would surely be enough therapy for the most gloomy listener:

‘Vodka Pineapple’? Make mine a double.
