BAIO – Sister Of Pearl
Baio unveils ‘Sister Of Pearl’, the stunning first single from his upcoming debut album, The Names, available for pre-order now, out September 18th on Glassnote Records. ‘Sister of Pearl’ is the second listen from The Names. The introductory track, ‘Brainwash yyrr Face’ touted by Spin as “SBTRKT-on-acid… a dance track pumped with dry ice,” is available to stream on YouTube.
Baio said, “With ‘Sister of Pearl’ I wanted to write a Bowie & Ferry-referencing throwback pop song with a simple, straight-forward lyrical message: be who you want to be.”
The Names, produced by Baio, explores ideas of space — of belonging, identity and finding a place in the world. Some of this was occasioned by his own geographical shift — having recently moved to London, he found himself struck by his new city’s expanse of sky, green space, and globalness — elements that infuse the record’s sound.
