Pushpin’s Experimental Pop Is Delightful on “Apples”

Experimental pop’s Pushpin impress with “Apples”, a song that seems wholly conceived within their own vernacular.

Rising South London band Pushpin are following their debut single “Folds” with their latest song, “Apples”. Sporting killer harmonies, inventive textures and rhythms, and an experimental sense, Pushpin impress with “Apples”, a track that seems wholly conceived within their own vernacular. “Folds” found airplay on the BBC Radio 6 Music, and “Apples” should substantially raise their profile. Drawing inspiration from prior pop oddballs like MGMT and Vampire Weekend, the band have a winningly original sound that goes well beyond those forbearers by embracing their experimental urges with instrumental passages that are almost like a form of electronic jazz. Great sound. We look forward to more.

Hear “Apples” on the PopMatters Picks Spotify playlist.
