London based singer-songwriter Pierre Da Silva makes his eagerly anticipated return with the captivating new single ‘Say You Do’, out on all streaming services on 2nd June.
With a voice described as “made for soul”, ‘Say You Do’ shows Pierre at his most authentic yet. Written from the viewpoint of missing someone so deeply but not being able to be with them, the track highlights Pierre’s talents as an accomplished songwriter and storyteller. With lockdown hitting all corners of the globe, this notion has never been more relatable.
Accompanied with a heartfelt, stirring vocal delivery and Pierre’s trademark delicate rasp, the track pulls from his influences within pop and indie music to craft contagiously soulful songs.
Speaking of the track, Pierre says, “The track was written from a place of longing. Longing for someone you miss, that you know has kind of moved on. Hoping that you still occupy some space somewhere in their heart. Hoping that in their odd quiet moments, they still think about you, because you can’t stop thinking about them.”
With years of writing under his belt, a recent tip by the MOBO awards, and having already shared stages with the likes of Little Simz, Che Lingo and Rukhsana Merrisse, Pierre’s star is set to continue to rise in the coming months.
