aboutagirl is a project that pits two experienced figures against one another in an attempt to locate fresh ground.
Pushing aside their catalogue, the pairing - Tom Mann and Lostboy - asserted themselves via some beautiful opening statements, including the glitch-heavy haze of ‘Forest Fire’ and ‘KaMiKaZe’.
Recently remixing Dua Lipa and Dermot Kennedy, their lucid electronic pop music has a strong sense of narrative, and an ability to step outwith the norm.
Take new single 'Deep Sea Diving'. The song followed an archetypal trip to Los Angeles, but instead of finding the City of Angels the pair were lost in empty hype.
Staying true to themselves, 'Deep Sea Diving' emerged, this pearl of digi-pop that sees past the headlines.
Speaking on the track, they said:
“We wrote 'Deep Sea Diving' with some of our best mates in an old house in LA, which had a pool that was so dirty you couldn’t really see to the bottom. It was gross but it became this whole concept about trying to get to the bottom of someone’s real personality, seeing past all the fronting and pretences that they have.”
