Here’s the latest track from London-based,British pop producer and songwriter duo, Gold Spectacles; “Origami Lover” is the fifth installment in a series of twelve monthly singles that they are working on. This record is the follow up to the magnificent effort, “Courtside”. It’s another splendid indie-pop piece which lays bare the group’s inherent musical creativity. The lyrical composition describes the plights of being in love with a narcissist.
“We have always loved the sound of the Mellotron. There’s something very innocent and nostalgic about it. ‘Origami Lover’ is anchored around the Mellotron’s flute sound but we dubbed it with an actual flute (one of us being a flutist). We were pretty happy to get a flute solo in a pop song! The innocence in the arrangement is reflected in the past-naivety of narrator. She’s been blind to her lover’s narcissistic ways but now she’s starting to realise his love for her is paper thin, ” Gold Spectacles remarks about this new song
