Papooz - "IT HURTS ME"

Welcoming the chilled French romantic vibes of PAPOOZ with their latest release, "IT HURTS ME," from the album RESONATE. Produced by the talented Patrick Wimberly (known for his work with MGMT, Blood Orange, Solange, Lil Yachty, etc.), and released by Half Awake, this track dives deep into the realms of soft rock with a cozy blend of bedroom/lo-fi pop and dream pop that will have you floating in a sea of good feelings. Imagine yourself in a sultry, romantic mood, with a happiness that’s both contagious and reflective. That's the essence of "IT HURTS ME." Drawing comparisons to the likes of Kings of Convenience, The Magnetic Fields, The Whitest Boy Alive, Serge Gainsbourg, and Phoenix, PAPOOZ brings a unique mix of female vocals laid over a funky beat that's perfect for a slow dance with a wine in hand. Ulysse Cottin and Armand Penicaut, the masterminds behind PAPOOZ, share some fascinating insights into the creation of RESONATE. Written and recorded between the vibrant cities of New York and Paris alongside American songwriter/producer Jesse Harris, the album came to life in a flurry of creativity, producing a song a day in a process that felt like a stream of consciousness. Inspired by the concept of resonance, as theorized by Hartmut Rosa, the duo explored this theme both lyrically and musically, reflecting on their relationships within and outside the band.
