Wallace - Negroni Eyes

Following on from her impressive first two singles, "Vinyl Skip" and "Beauty" featuring Sampa The Great, New Zealand-born, Sydney-based future-soul songstress Wallace Gollan, aka Wallace returns with her third single of the year entitled "Negroni Eyes", which was produced by Godriguez, whose signature sound is created by chopping up old jazz standards to make new beats, the lure of which appealed to the Jazz nerd within Wallace. Using the stems of a Miles Davis instrumental "Nardis," Godriguez laid a soulful backdrop for Wallace's smokey vocals to take over.

"The lyric imagery in Negroni Eyes was inspired by a Frida Kahlo quote I saw scrawled in chalk on the wall of a Mexican restaurant in Wellington, New Zealand", says Wallace.
"I drank to drown my sorrows, but the damned things learned how to swim."
"My mind conjured up an image of a person knee-deep, wading through alcohol inside their own brain, searching for the cause of the flood all the while knowing that they, themselves are to blame. I guess in a way it's an ode to vices and their ability to mask problems."

Listen to "Negroni Eyes" below.

"Negroni Eyes" is available now on Bandcamp.

Premiere via Indie Shuffle.
