"Des Bisous"

From the release Des Bisous

The London based producer, label boss, and one third of the Bristol's Livity Sound outfit states:

"Des Bisous was the first release on my own label, Pale Fire. I wrote it in January 2012 at a time when I'd become irrationally infatuated with an enigmatic French girl - the fraught strings and swollen and bruised bass line are an accurate replication of my mental state at the time. At one point she ignored me for a couple of days before sending a message that simply read 'des bisous', it took a further couple of days for me to realise this meant 'kisses' rather than 'fuck off'. I'm not very good at French."

Livity Sound appear alongside the Bristol collective Young Echo as part of the Bristol New School feature in the September issue of The Wire. To read this article click here.
