Today we’re thrilled to premiere the brilliant, brand new single “Pantone Home” from Sydney-based soul songstress Wallace. Opening with an isolated piano, it’s not long before the beat steps in and we get a spectacular mix of soul, jazz, hip-hop and electronica. The beautiful track – her second of 2018 – may just be Wallace’s finest yet, showcasing the breadth of the emerging artist’s talents.
Here’s what Wallace had to say about the track:
Pantone Home is my second collab with the incredible Danny Barwick. I fell in love instantly with the beautiful sampling of pianist Colin Hopkins, I’m not quite sure why but it made me think of home. I didn’t find out till after I’d finished all the lyrics that Colin is an architect by day. Was meant to be.
Pantone Home is essentially a walk through the duck egg blue house I grew up in. I’ve clearly inherited my mum’s obsession with colour, my folks home is literally a rainbow and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m lucky enough to have been back to Wellington a lot more this year but I still miss it all the time so this one goes out to mum, dad and our little blue house on the hill. Everything in the song is 100% true. Our lounge is in fact painted the most bad ass mustardy/ limey yellow, we watch the telly a bright red art deco lounge suite, eat dinner on Crown Lynn plates in every pastel shade (one of the famous swans lives in our bathroom too) and try not to touch the exposed pink bates in the walls (sorry dad, I know you’ll finish renovations one day).
Written by Wallace, produced by Danny Barwick, mixed by Becki Whitton and mastered by Steve Smart, you can be the first in the world to get your ears around “Pantone Home” ahead of her Australia/New Zealand tour:
Don’t miss Wallace as she tours around Australia and New Zealand in support of the single.
