[song] Guest Singer – Puppy

Dancing at night under a disco ball (even if you have a bedside lamp instead of a disco ball) is often a perfect setting for the development of existential thoughts. London-based duo Guest Singer reproduce this process on their new single “Puppy”, a dark indie pop track with galloping synth lines and Jake Cope’s elegant vocal delivery.

Inspired by the book Humankind by Rutger Bergman, the duo share their thoughts about the nature of human kindness — a phenomenon that is either natural or cultivated by society. Answers to such profound questions are not easy to find, so the mood of the song follows the rules of a melancholy pop anthem — even if it seems that you have found the roots of the problem, let others find solutions themselves.
