Amsterdam-born singer Pitou has released her video for new single ‘Give Me A Glass’, which we’re premiering here on DIY. Having been involved in music from an early age, Pitou released her first EP in 2016 whilst at the Conservatoire of Amsterdam and has recently released her mini-album ‘I Fall Asleep So Fast’ via Mink Records, which features the new single. ‘Give Me A Glass’ is a slow-moving, emotive piece of music which sees Pitou’s lovely vocals intertwined with a simple, yet effective acoustic instrumental.

‘Amsterdam-born artist Pitou has one of the most arresting voices to emerge from this year … she crafts intelligent folk-pop that balances the darkness and light of human emotion’

‘If she doesn’t find an audience vastly beyond the already growing fanbase she currently commands, everything in the world will have gone terribly wrong’

TDI: ‘Het nummer Too Young staat ook op de EP, alleen daar duurt ‘ie maar tweeënhalve minuut en in Rotterdam bijna zes minuten. En eigenlijk is dat veel lekkerder: de uitgesponnen psych-psalmen doen denken aan The Brian Jonestown Massacre en Guided By Voices. Inclusief een zeer brakke camera die het geheel gefilmd heeft, is het helemaal old skool lo-fi. En daar houden we wel van’.
Pitou once again managed to put a spell on everyone listening in to her session at Motel Mozaique Festival. 3VOOR12 recorded it! Check out the full video here.
