Simone Pitot – ‘If I Could’
Brisbane’s a funny place. Despite releasing a stellar EP, gigging consistently and being both incredibly good-looking and hard-working, Simone Pitot appears to have flown under the radar in this big country town. Sad, but not surprising; we don’t really know what to do with female singer-songwriters with serious crossover potential.
‘If I Could’ is a fantastic example of what vintage synths and clever production can add to a song with good bones. Producer Caleb James has really brought Pitot’s songs into their own, tempering her folk and pop influences with obvious good taste.
Simone’s debut self-titled EP is out now. If you’re a Brisbanite, catch her at Rics on Wednesday night; not only is she a solid live performer, she has the most spectacular wardrobe this side of the Tropic of Capricorn.
