video premiere: Pecas – T-shirt

PECAS TSHIRT

Here’s a dreamy, sensuous Valentine’s day gift from Pecas, aka Brooklyn-via-Madrid artist Sandy Davis. Pecas’ twitter bio describes her sound as “gotha nova” (which we are proclaiming best new genre name), and misty new dream-pop slow jam “T-Shirt” has an ethereal but just vaguely creepy vibe that walks a fine line between seductive and playfully sinister: “I’ll wear your t-shirt at night / ‘Til the day that I die / I’ll never wash it once / Fuck it if I’m crazy / Nobody knows it but me”. Highly recommended for fans of TOPS, Mr Twin Sister, and the sumptuous, silky-smooth sounds of classic ’80s r&b. Davis tells us about her obsession with the song’s eponymous t-shirt, and the surreal Joshua Thomas-directed video:

I stole my ex’s t-shirt after we broke up and slept in it for really long time. At a certain point I realized that it was slightly creepy and also comical. The song was an admission to myself of just that. The video didn’t come to fruition until a year or so after I had written the song, at that point I was far enough removed from any sentimental attachments to it and was able to explore more of the comedic aspects. I drew a lot of inspiration from Connan Mockasin’s “I’m the Man That Will Find You” and started to play around with the idea of being the female counterpart to that. I wanted to own being a creepy/sensual R&B crooner and hoped with the video to blur the lines of gender, identity, and sensuality. The song was later revised to include low pitch-shifted vocals to reinforce this idea in the video. And in the very end of the editing process we added a warp on my face for a few shots, primarily because I really got a kick out of it – the idea of breaking and recreating my perception of myself and how others perceive me.
