Pynch – Only
‘Only’ is the debut single from London/Ramsgate’s Pynch, and follows on from a fantastic year for the lo-fi indie group. Performances across the capital and plays from BBC Introducing and BBC Radio 6 culminated in a support slot with Peter Doherty and The Puta Madres at the Kentish Town Forum on May 12th.
Pynch feels like a walk down memory lane, taking cues from Indie artists that have made their mark on music such as Arcade Fire and Foster the People, but still retaining a uniqueness brought by Spencer Enock’s vocals and an emphasis on dreamlike riffs (courtesy of James Rees) that compliment the mellowed out lo-fi rhythms that dominate their sound.
‘Only’ itself is a mellowed-out, relaxing, heartfelt number draped over a veil of melancholia. ‘Only’ talks about the devotion our man has for a lover, whilst simplistic in its lyricism the delivery accompanied by the music will strike a chord in you. Nostalgic, is a perfect word to describe easily how this song feels.
The song is accompanied by a simple but beautiful video that really captures it’s essence, full of colour whilst the tide gently rolls in. In conclusion, you can find ‘Only’ to be a treat that should be found in any chilled or relaxed playlist, and come May 29th should definitely be in yours.
