Premiere: Pizzagirl crafts exuberant alt-pop on ‘Coffee Shop’

He’s releasing his EP ‘An Extended Play’ in April.

Back in January, Liverpool-based lo-fi pop maestro Liam Brown – better known under his moniker of Pizzagirl – dropped his debut single ‘Favourite Song’, his attempt at making “a tune that would fit nicely in a Miami Vice/ Blade Runner soundtrack”. That description alone could be enough to indeed make it your favourite song alone, but the extroverted pop proved to be captivating.

Now Pizzagirl’s gearing up to release his debut EP ‘An Extended Play’ (see what he did there?) on 13th April through Heist or Hit. Before it’s out next month though, he’s shared another track, ‘Coffee Shop’, and it’s as sweet as having several shots of caramel syrup in your latte. Underpinned by his own lilting vocal style and some jangly guitar riffs, the track is really propelled by an exuberant hook and a bunch of upbeat rhythms and melodies. 

Speaking of the track, Liam said: “Each listen of ‘coffee shop’ is blended expertly in the bedroom of Pizzagirl to ensure maximum taste for your ears. One spoonful of nostalgia with a dash of 1998 ensures a listening experience like no other”. He’s right too. This isn’t just the type of track you’d hear ambiently playing in the back of your coffee chain of choice; it’s effervescent pop worth fully diving into. 

Pizzagirl is also set to play a few shows in the coming months, including a run with fellow Liverpudlians Her’s in April and May.
