PAGEANTS – ” Just Tell Me “

Posted: June 11, 2021 in MUSIC

The follow-up to “It Might Be Crazy”, “Just Tell Me” is the latest from Long Beach duo Pageants’ sophomore album “Sun And Setttled Days” due out July 30th. Rebecca Coleman and Devin O’Brien decamped to the Joshua Tree National Park to make the video themselves. “‘Just Tell Me’ is about the pitfalls and blind spots of a friendship that has long since passed its expiration date,” Coleman says. “I wrote this at a time when I was struggling to look past the good times in a friendship — past my friend’s true potential — and just accept that they’d done me dirty for the last time.” Of the video, O’Brien says: “It’s a visual representation of strength and independence, of newfound confidence and swag, all tinged with Western Cali charm.”

Written when my and Devin’s relationship was spread thin across the continent while he toured with Cherry Glazerr, and my vision of what was possible in my own music career was narrowing on the daily, ‘It Might Be Crazy’ became an anthem for those hit with the reality of their circumstances,” explains Coleman. “This was a time in my life when I realized that everything I’d been working for might have been in vain, but I chose to keep fighting for what and who I love.”

The 11 tracks of glittering indie pop across Sun and Settled Days find the pair personally liberated and sonically mature as they crystallize the golden formula to their sound: a bright blend of dream pop, shoegaze, and ‘60s surf. Pageants mine their pain with an air of positivity and playful vitality, which is their true power.
