Aussie artist Paige Valentine delivers an intimate love song with a pinch of heartbreak titled “Pure,” an indie folk piece where the gal invites us into a soulful introspective soundscape. “Pure” reminisces the old initial stage of romance with a lingering sense of loneliness and loss between two people who are drifting apart. Stream below:
On her single, the gal shared: “‘Pure’ was written on a winter’s afternoon while visiting my friend and fellow writer, Matt Gresham. I was beginning to witness a number of friends’ long term relationships being tested and drew a bit on personal experience, when two people who love each other seem to drift apart chasing different dreams, or going through hardships, or just generally changing as people. Matt already had the chords ready to go, I ad-libbed the first verse and chorus while he was playing guitar. We both knew we were onto something really special and something that really hit a nerve, Matt even asked if I wanted to continue writing it – it was intense. We finished the song half an hour later…vulnerable, personal, challenging songwriting. I went to Sydney and did some pre-production with Billy Otto, before returning to Fremantle and finishing the single with Dylan Ollivierre (The Money War). Pure is about trying to remember why you love someone and wanting to get back to that innocence of when you fell in love.”
The track is from the gal’s upcoming EP, which is in the works.
