Release day has arrived for Pickle Darling's sophomore album, Cosmonaut. Along with the album, they have shared a charming video for the opening track Achieve Lift! Check it out:
Speaking about Achieve Lift!, songwriter Lukas Mayo commented that “there’s a whole bunch of thoughts and experiences swirling around in this song. Late nights spent with loved ones, fighting a horrible landlord, weird gossipy parties and having friends set each other up with other friends…but the core of it is basically about the final night you spend with someone before they have to leave town for a long period of time. Sonically I wanted the song to be a strange, lopsided introduction to the album, where it kind of tumbles in slowly and messily.”
With the release of the full album, we can now hear for ourselves what Mayo was referring to. Take a listen to Cosmonaut below:
Pickle Darling has also planned a "cosmic voyage" to support the new release, for which you can jump aboard. They are hitting 12 spots across Aotearoa this July with bandmates Serena Close (Mousey) and Cameron Finlay in tow to bring the Pickle Darling sound into live reality.
