A note from Pitou:
“I Fall Asleep So Fast turns 2 today. Some songs stay in the past and some songs travel with you through the years. The title song is one that has travelled with me. Guy Garvey kindly said: ‘hearing the vocals to this song is like watching a high-wire act’ – and that is exactly what performing the song still feels like and means to me. I miss playing, but will continue working on my album in the meantime. Hopefully we will see each other some day after all this. ❤️ Pitou”
The EP received a sea of critical acclaim from major platforms and radio stations such as NME, Clash Magazine, Line of Best Fit, The 405, DIY, Europavox, BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 1, Radio X (all UK), Radio FIP (FR) 3FM (NL), and many more. Pitou was named one of the 12 ‘Talents For 2018’ by 3VOOR12 (the music department of the national broadcaster) in The Netherlands, and ‘One To Watch for 2018’ by The Independent.
‘Regimented but gentle (…) Mechanical but empathic. Like Tinkerbell serenading you from the far side of a wormhole, or an archangel contemplating eternity in some heavenly hall of mirrors.’ – Gigwise
‘Spellbinding”; “heavenly”; “unique”. The adjectives that have been deployed to describe her music are as numerous as they are effusive. And as her fingers dance across her guitar strings, it’s easy to be mesmerized — whether viewing the world through the prism of alcohol (“Give Me A Glass”), dealing with self-doubt (“Be Delicate”), or the wonders of new love (“Debt Of A Lover”), her songs flutter and float like a cloud, slowly coalescing into grand shapes and forms. Sometimes, as Pitou proves, less really can be more.’ – Europavox
’I don’t know exactly how to describe this, but Pitou’s songs reach straight into my soul. Her way of singing instantly brought tears to my eyes. She creates intimate, minimalistic and above all beautiful folksongs, with mysterious melodies that remind one of Alela Diane, Laura Marling or Julia Holter. Not overly sentimental, but intimate and powerful.’ – Noisey VICE NL
