The PC Music mainstays are back with a new single.
“It started off with the lullaby/celeste pattern and we were working in and around this kind of sleepy twinkly melody”, explains Harle. “But as the lyrics came together we worked out there was a possibility for there to be this repressed inner excitement/keenness that could come out in a really hard section.”
“With artwork and imagery, I always like to start with an object that I feel helps me to create a world in my mind about the music. I instantly felt that the ‘Part of Me’ object would be a music box”, says Diamond. “I had one as a kid where I used to keep my most precious things I had found….A lot of the ideas for the artwork came from my memory of that music box and how the things you keep or cherish stay with you and become a part of you.”
“When I was looking at all the research images I kept thinking about how some of them looked like tiny stages, and how the music boxes of the future (if they ever become a thing again) would have popstars inside them instead of Ballerinas.”
