UK duo Dirty Nice, aka Carlie Pelling and Mark Thompson, know that relationships are imperfect – but those low and rough moments are ingredients to building solid foundation. Their latest single “Tulips” serves as a metaphorical ode to such romance through its summery synthesizers that buoy you with its seamless rhythmic fluidity. In Pelling’s words, “I bought her some yellow tulips after an argument. She didn’t care in the moment. Later, she arranged them in a vase on the windowsill. For me, they became a symbol of the core of our relationship, pure and delicate, regardless of the rough patches we move through. Now, when I see some tulips, they remind me to celebrate that fact I am able to share my blip of existence with her.”
The track is from their upcoming debut album Lobster, which will be out on October 1st via Chiverin. They’ll be performing at Colours in London on September 30th.
