You might remember Pi Ja Ma, the moniker of French artist and singer Pauline de Tarragon, who crafts rather addicting alt-pop, as evidenced by 2016 debut EP Radio Girl.
Anyway, Pi Ja Ma is back with a festive flavoured gem that is just as alluring a proposition as she attempts to combat Christmas loneliness with imagination. ‘Family’ is an elegant, melancholic electro-pop song that glides by with a dreamlike aura. It oscillates between graceful and playful moving along a bubbling bassline and twinkling synth, as ‘Family’ shimmers and glistens majestically. The dreamy instrumentation lays a perfect setting for de Tarragon’s crisp and beautiful vocals to flourish and delight. This is a beautiful, super catchy and playful piece of alluring electro-pop and the video compliments the song perfectly, the boredom and loneliness is beaten back by the power if her imagination, creating a wonderfully world of escapism where she is quickly joined by crazy characters: a ranger, a bear and a living tree in sitting around a campfire in a forest. Surely there is always room for some pitch perfect pop perfection in our lives?
‘Family’ is lifted from Pi Ja Ma’s debut album, Nice to meet U, which is expected on January 18 2019.
