Melbourne's Blue Arcade have unveiled their latest single, Love Is Pink.

The shimmering track features a massive 45 different vocal harmonies throughout, and also uses a lo-fi demo recording of the song as the intro. Speaking of the track, the duo share: "Despite the sugary and eccentric soundscape it maintains a melancholic nostalgia".

Taking a unique approach to their songwriting, the duo never write or record in the same room. Instead Tom Crane and Eva van Dijk send their compositions and creations to each other, a practice that allows each member to contribute to an overall atmosphere whilst maintaining a distinctive uniqueness.

The duo take their inspiration from a variety of artists, ranging from Blondie to Chet Baker and New Order, the 1975, Grimes, the Strokes and the Beach Boys. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the band were playing packed shows in and around London with artists such as Fatboy Slims live DJ, The Juke of York, AmaraCTK100 and Paul The Kid. Now, the a number of shows pencilled in for 2021, the band are gearing up for the release of their debut EP.

Love Is Pink is out now! Listen to the song below.
