Dublin-based singer/songwriter Pastiche has released an explosive debut single, “Chasing Down the Fame.”
The electro-pop song features driving synths, energetic drums, and powerful vocals from Pastiche. The engaging production and layered vocals create a dynamic track that establishes Pastiche as a force to be reckoned with in the Dublin pop scene.
About the song, Pastiche says, “The song addresses the idea of achieving fame as a subjective journey; it almost never looks the same. I also think there’s a difference between fame and significance. Fame is usually an accident, but you can claim your own significance. I think this track is me doing that: showcasing my sound and trying to prove myself.”
She goes on to say, “I wanted to address not only where I hope to go but also where I came from. The line “I'll show them what they made of me” is about all the rejections and “no’s” that have led me to where I am, developing thick skin, and needing to rely on my own self-belief.”
On the Irish pop scene, Pastiche says, “Pop in Ireland always seems to be imported. There’s very few successful female Irish pop artists. The scene isn't here - so we have to create it. Radio stations are playing Dua Lipa every five minutes- so why can't we have Irish pop instead? I want to help break that barrier.”
