nodisco. — “Pretty Blue Jeans & Me”
nodisco. is an indie pop artist adept at making moving grooves right from his bedroom. He officially debuted in 2019 with a wonderfully intimate sound. Self-described as “an obsessive neurotic romantic,” his debut project Who Knew I’d Write Songs About You? is a cheeky way of saying templated pop music must go in favor of the hyper specific imagery nodisco. employs.
His latest single, “Pretty Blue Jeans & Me” is all about swells and swerves. For an artist repping Toronto, nodisco. eschews most of the stylings of his city in favor of synth wave tones. His voice rolls atop light strums and images of a placid love story—meeting parents, hanging with siblings. As nodisco. puts it, the song was a revelation: “When I started this one with Joseph [Tilley], it immediately felt magical. I was in a rut, writing about the same situations and life circumstances and felt like I needed some sort of disconnect.”
“‘Pretty Blue Jeans & Me’ signals a departure from the past narrative thread sewn through previous releases,” nodisco. tells Audiomack World. “Gone is the all encompassing story of a specific relationship gone sour, and in comes a love song about no one. Yes, you read that right... No one. In a year in which I was confined to my bedroom alone, ‘Pretty Blue Jeans & Me’ is very much a long daydream of an idealized relationship with someone I've never met.”
