Brisbane art-pop band, Fresco Kyoto have shared a commanding and evocative new single, You Save Me.
Fresco Kyoto have returned with their first single of the year, You Save Me. A striking follow-up to their melodious 2020 hit, Whatever You Say, this new offering flawlessly showcases the group’s ever-evolving musicianship, as they refine their sound and aural personality, conjuring up comparisons to Rufus Du Sol and Hayden James.
Effortlessly fusing elements of electronica, indie-pop and alternative music, You Save Me will have you enthralled from start to finish, thanks to its soul-soothing vocal stylings, earnest lyrics and invigorating instrumentation. The band’s adoration for lo-fi house and ethereal dark melodies shines brightly throughout the track, which is foregrounded by frontman Robbie Balmer’s delicate yet powerful voice.
Speaking of the new single, Fresco Kyoto share, “a person has realised that they have entrapped their love in a relationship that is proving to be defined by their own flaws. Through self sacrifice the person determines the way they rise above their ailment is on their own, and that their partner must move on to a better life. This song is an ode to time and the revelations it unveils.”
You Save Me was produced by the band’s own Toby Alexander and Cody McWaters between Hunting Ground Studios and Airlock Studios (owned by Powderfinger’s Ian Haug), where Cody has assumed the role of head engineer. Stream the new single via Spotify below.
