Bio

‘Eye of the Storm’ is the first single from Le Pie's impending debut album ‘A Room Of One’s Own,’ due out November 13, 2020. It unravels Le Pie's personal experience of falling in love with a long-term female friend, soon after the dissolution of her own marriage. This broken hearted 60s ballad explores the confusion of being stuck somewhere between two turbulent worlds. In other words - trapped in the eye of a storm.

"This song is special to me because it's about someone I really cared for. It's also the first time I have openly identified as a queer woman in my song writing. The romantic relationship was quite sudden and became very intense, very quickly. Looking back, it was more than I could emotionally handle so soon out of my marriage."

‘Eye of the Storm’ grew from a disagreement between Le Pie and her lover, sitting outside the Oxford Art Factory after a gig one night. "I can’t remember exactly what the argument was about but at one point she turned to me and said, 'You want to be with complex people but you want them to be simple for you.' This realisation was so accurate I was shocked and didn’t know what to say in return."

The accompanying video was directed by Molly Haddon and shot by cinematographer Jani Hakli. Shot over two days between an art space in Newtown and a drive in theatre in Blacktown, the video is in keeping with Le Pie’s vintage aesthetic that we have come to know her for.

'A Room Of One's Own' is due for release on November 13th, 2020.

You know from Le Pie's tone that it's doomed from the start but the journey is still a compelling one, especially when it's realised so clearly on this track.

Showing her teeth on this latest track, Le Pie's time travelled from her familiar '60s pop aesthetic and into the '90s to roll with a grunge group.

if they didn't get the message then this would have been one beautiful way to deliver it.
