Emerging, London-based duo Stone Fruit unveil their first single of the year, the gorgeously atmospheric and heartfelt new track, ‘Second Guess’. Sonically enchanting and lyrically impassioned, ‘Second Guess’ captures the duo at their best, enmeshing the listener in the haunting melodies of Valentini Pavlidou and the spacious and ethereal production of Lef Germenlis.
Both having worked on different projects, this duo is the fruit of their longstanding friendship and their unquenchable need to create a sound that brings together elements of soul, pop, R&B and electronic music. ‘Second Guess’ is the first single off their upcoming EP and a welcomed, promising new addition to Stone Fruit’s growing discography.
“'Second Guess' is the first single of our third EP. Across our previous releases, we have explored different sounds influenced by soul, pop and electronic music.
Although in this EP we had the pleasure to collaborate with and feature some amazing musicians, we chose 'Second Guess' to be our first single as it best captures the creative process of our duo. Written, recorded and produced in our home studio, this single is an electro-folk minimalistic track influenced by the likes of Ry X and London Grammar.
The ethereal sounds and storyline are exploring and commenting on themes magnified during the pandemic, such as doubt and self-reflection.”
As the first single to be revealed from their forthcoming EP, ‘Second Guess’ offers fans and listeners an exciting insight into what Val & Lefs long-awaited new project will look and sound like; from its retrospective account of themes relevant to the pandemic to its magical, sonic exploration spanning across genres, moods and concepts. Look out for Stone Fruit’s upcoming EP, ‘Hold Me Close’ set for release in July.
