Slime Girls has just released the stunning new music video for “Meteor Showers” via Consequence of Sound. The single is released as a part of Vancouver label File Under: Music‘s new bi-weekly video single series One Song At A Time. The stems from “Meteor Girls” are available for remixing. Slime Girls aka Pedro Silva create a unique brand of pop, blending together electronic music concepts and vibes with traditional instruments and pop sensibilities. “Meteor Showers” is an ode to a childhood adventure, and all the nebulous emotions our young hearts endure. Slime Girls are making music for a generation of kids who grew up on the internet.
Consequence of Sound shared:
“Silva orients his music towards the cosmos, smashing together styles of all kinds — some loud and harsh, others tranquil and subdued — to arrive at his own offbeat notion of the sublime. Slime Girls’ new single “Meteor Showers” is a blast of synths and straightforward guitar hooks that definitely falls on the more intense side of the spectrum. Silva has described his project as “an eternal love letter to an endless summer,” and the fast, frenetic, euphoric “Meteor Showers” might be the closest he’s ever come to realizing that.”
While Slime Girls’ recorded material is typically gravitates more towards the electronic end of the musical spectrum, for the One Song at a Time release of “Meteor Showers” Pedro decided to put forth something a little different.
“This is the first original song I’ve sang on that’s been recorded, but anybody that’s seen us live has heard me sing plenty on covers and live versions of existing songs of mine that have vocals. I wouldn’t say there’s really too much to it, I wanted to write a fast and stripped down song evoking some “summers as a kid” sense of supernatural adventure, and that’s what I did. Slime Girls is going to pretty much always just be me writing whatever music I feel like writing on any given day, and I felt like singing so here it is.”
In the video, director Matt Leaf took the spirit of childhood memories and explored the ambiguous nature of how as children we interpret our surroundings. His video for “Meteor Showers” plays with the evolution of memories, how though they may seem as concrete as a Polaroid in adulthood, their true form is far less static.
