Melbourne-born, Los Angeles-based pop luminary Banoffee has shared the video for new single ‘Count on You’, taken from her forthcoming debut album Look At Us Now Dad.
Collaborating with avant-pop futurist Sophie and producer Yves Rothman, on ‘Count on You’ serrated synths and glitchy production provide a backdrop to the song’s lyrics, a powerful declaration of solidarity with survivors of abuse.
Banoffee has been steadily making a name for herself in recent years, touring as part of Charli XCX‘s troupe.
In addition to Sophie, for debut album Look At Us Now Dad Banoffee collaborated with the likes of Empress Of, Cupcakke and more to combine infectious pop with underground new rave experimentation. Written in the years since she moved to LA from Melbourne in 2017, it focuses in on topics of abuse, sadness and loss, ultimately centring on a story of survival and rebirth.
“Each song uses human experience to talk about more complex concepts of addiction, obsession, heartbreak and resurrection,” says the musician in a statement. “Not to dwell in sadness, but to join hands.”
“Each track is about a struggle and achievement that anyone could experience, the ones that seem so trivial. We’re all survivors for one reason or another.”
Watch the video for ‘Count on You’ below. Look At Us Now Dad is out Friday, 21st February through Dot Dash.
Banoffee will be supporting Wafia on tour this week in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane – head here for all the details.
