London artist VC Pines takes us into the pre-breakup, fragile phase of a doomed relationship in new single “Cracks.” Written with Max Helyer (You Me At Six), it’s a soulful pop anthem where VC Pine’s cutting vocals channel the fracturing sound as the burning melody exude the dark air of endings. Stream below:
On the new song, VC Pines shared: “In a production sense, we thought about how we could tie the actual sonics as much as possible to the meaning of the song. If you listen closely enough, you might hear the song crack inside your head.”
Jack Mercer is the maestro behind VC Pines who has been making waves across the radio and press with his latest works. He has previously played across iconic festivals such as The Great Escape, Live At Leeds, etc. “Cracks” is from VC Pines’ upcoming EP Skully, which will be out on April 24th via Theory Records.
