“Saudade” is the new single by Pearz, out today February 11th, 2022 via Annibale Records

audade is the new single by Pearz, the project of the Italian-born, London-based multi-instrumentalist Francesco Perini, out on all digital platforms on February 11th, 2022 for Annibale Records.

Saudade is a word that I have always loved and it is associated by definition with the attitude of nostalgic regret,” according to Pearz. The mood of melancholy, particularly fitting in these difficult times in which we often find ourselves remembering a lost past, is combined with the strong desire for something missing. Born thanks to a spontaneous, entirely instrumental process, the track is pervaded by relaxed rhythms with inevitable Brazilian influences and elegant melodies that evoke positive memories.

Shot by Jules Apollinaire (TTRUUCES, Findlay), over the course of twenty-four hours, the video of the single follows Pearz in various London locations, where he plays the pianos made available by the city, despite many of them having recently been removed from the public spaces due to the pandemic. For the cover artwork, Pearz continues the collaboration with the acclaimed graphic designer Raissa Pardini, already at work for artists such as IDLES, The Orielles and Mystery Jets.

Pearz moved to London in 2013 following his brit rock band The Hacienda’s international success and he soon became an estimated session and touring musician, a path that brought him to tour not only the UK but the whole of Europe with acts such as Tess ParksM!R!M, Suki Waterhouse, Go!Zilla, Dead Coast, Elius Inferno & The Magic Octagram, Desert Ships, and Gil De Ray. All these experiences are conveyed in the surprising debut EP Nocturnal of 2020, a physical and psychological journey through the night, and in the previous acid house single Social Amnesia, dating back to 2021.

Gifted of great compositional technique, Pearz has absorbed and reworked the influence of different genres, from the typical groove of Italian soundtracks to Balearic music, from nu jazz to soul and electroop. Saudade is the ideal soundtrack to warm this winter.
