Organic pop-duo gorgeousness￼
They are gonna swoon you with their sparkly analogue sound and a charming melody with tints of country and folk. ’Divine’ by Gorgeous is out now.
They met three years ago and together they are Gorgeous! Maríe Louise is the voice and songwriter accompanied by producer and multi-instrumentalist, Andreas Murga. They write and record all their music as a team, complementing each other’s work but never afraid to embrace their human and musical differences – a natural and liberating symbiosis.
The Gorgeous debut single, ‘Divine’, is out now. The analogue sound that meets the ear is introverted and gentle but at least sparkly, bold and charming. With hints of country and folk, ‘Divine’ is gonna swoon you with its wonderful melody while Maríe Louise sings the words about a divine state of mind that everyone knows…
“Falling in love easily seems like a veil of euphoria, happiness and fascination. But at the same time, it’s a personal invitation into the life of a complete stranger – and the other way around – where you eventually will have to face each other’s story and what it holds of peculiarities, weaknesses, misfortune and tragedy. ‘Divine’ is about that total surrender – about showing the good and the bad sides when you bump into that “one in a million”-true love,” Maríe Louise says.
Both Maríe Louise and Andreas Murga were tired of making electronic cut-and-paste music when they met each other. A new core in making and writing music was discovered simultaneously by the two – and like the theme of ‘Divine’, it was found in the acceptance of flaws and the raw power that make the glorious melodies of Gorgeous standout.
