Alternative band Picturesque has dropped a brand new single. Fans can check out the music video for “Swipe” – a dark and deeply personal look at the world of dating apps.
On the new single, lead singer Kyle Hollis shares: “For the song ‘Swipe,’ I wanted to address a point in my life where I felt alone and I turned to Tinder to find company. One girl in particular would ghost for a week while uploading pictures of her and some other dude going out and then hit me up to “hangout.” Because I felt like I had nothing anymore, I felt like I couldn’t say no.”
Last December, Picturesque released “Pray,” a song that marked a new beginning for the band, Picturesque are embracing a new rule: brutal honesty, both musically and within their lives. No more thinly veiled metaphors, only the honest truth. “Pray” is their first foray into this territory, with devastating lyrics fueled by the recent break up of lead singer Kyle Hollis who, after 6 years in a committed relationship, ventured out into the world of dating apps in an attempt to beat loneliness. What he found was a culture fueled by one night hook-ups, ghosting and unbridled desperation. It’s a dark and shuddering rock song influenced by artists like blackbear and Post Malone – the first taste of what’s to come.
