Popstar-in-the-making Pastiche is also bringing her pop power to Whelan's this November.
Combining elements of electronic and dark pop, 22-year-old Pastiche has shared her brand new track 'Paraphernalia'.
One of the most exciting Irish pop acts of recent memory - and possessing a sound packed with attitude and empowerment - the Dublin singer-songwriter released her second single, 'Heaven', earlier this year.
Her previous two songs establishing her as a serious force to be reckoned with on the Irish scene.
'Paraphernalia' is a full-on dark pop fantasy banger full of energy and badass bass lines. Perfect for summer, this track is about longing for those wild nights out that we all deeply miss during this turbulent time. Sonically and lyrically, this track demands your attention; much like Pastiche herself. Her explosive brand of electro-pop features driving synths, energetic drums, and powerful vocals.
The exciting musician was the runner-up in the Hot Press 'Now We're Talking' songwriting competition back in 2019, before releasing her debut single 'Chasing Down The Fame'. Her love of performing started in stage school at the age of four, where she developed a love of musical theatre and practiced singing, tap dancing, jazz and modern contemporary dance. When the time came to make a decision about a career, Pastiche wasted no time and enrolled in Dublin's BIMM Institute, where she studied Vocal Performance.
'Paraphernalia' is undoubtedly one of Pastiche's most captivating singles yet, fully embodying her unique, unashamed pop soundscape. The music video will arrive on Thursday, May 27th, so keep your eyes peeled.
Off the back of her Hot Press Lockdown Sessions' Y&E series performance, Pastiche has also announced her first headline show upstairs at Whelan’s Dublin on November 11th, 2021. Tickets are on sale now.
