"The Music"

I'm sure — and hope — we still have plenty of readers who grew up in or simply love the '60s, because Le Pie's new EP is for you, swirling and cascading through Spector-isms with a respectful adoration of classic girl groups.

Sure, both Lykke Li and The Raveonettes have also floated through these dreamfields in recent years to wonderful effect, but this Sydneysider's spin — complete with 'teenage girl talking to mirror' segment (in Secrets) pops with 8mm nostalgia. Lyrically, Le Pie is charmingly playful (note Josephine who is "oh so Frenchy but she's never been to France"). - Mac McNaughton


"Rolling Stone"

In a recent episode of ABC's 7:30, host Leigh Sales introduced a story on the Humans Of Newtown website by describing the inner-west locale as "one of Sydney's grungiest, edgiest suburbs". She visually cringed on the categorisation — and rightly so. While built on legitimate intentions, "grunge" has had every fragment of it's initial surrounding integrity squeezed out of it by the discount-urban-warez outlets of Every City. Yet it remains the only appropriate label for so many circumstances.

As is the case with Sydney's Le Pie.

Her (previously praised) debut track "Secrets" is based on the balance between minimal and spacious pop, while lyrically focusing on an extraction of therapeutic worries rather than searching for any defined solution. The edges of this soulful side are frayed and imperfect, yet any form of laboured focus would ultimately dilute those contained human qualities. She's passionately indebted to her scenario, yet seemingly unfazed by the outcome. For anyone with teenage memories planted alongside "that Seattle sound", the repurposed adjective now synonymous with the genre ultimately seems like the only logical descriptor.

For the visual component, Le Pie precisely lands in-between the three spikes of her sound — the glaring bright lights of her pop outer shell, the soulful timelessness of her bold vintage fashion aesthetic and her permanent expressionless gaze of nonchalance perfectly complimenting the fuzzed guitar loop backing. And, of course, the video was shot on King Street, in Newtown.
