pecq, the burgeoning project of multi-instrumentalist and producer duo Nikò O’Brien (FR/IT) and Hannah (Jakes) Jacobs (UK), make music that’s slightly different. New single Killing Time is memorable. With a dreamy, yet expressive sound, the duo showcase their creativity. Thoughtful lyrics are backed by a dreamy synth, intricate diy electro-kalimba and drum groove. Hannah’s velvet vocals leading to a heartwrenching final chorus featuring vocals from pals including Megan Henwood, feeo, LMNL and BE GOOD.
About the track, Jakes says: ”Killing Time is about making the same mistakes over and over – dying relationships I kept going back to, destructive habits I can’t break. I’m a big one for drastic changes and breaking with the past but so many times I end up back where I started.”
I think that pecq have great artistic abilities. They stand out from the crowd, because of their authenticity. Listen to Killing Time below!
