Fettuccine Deliver Melancholic Beats on ‘Sent Before Sundown’
Fusing ambient electronica with luscious vocals, Fettuccine make a notable debut with ‘Sent Before Sundown’, reflecting on memories of normality before everything changed in 2020. Encapsulating feelings of loneliness and the simple pleasures with minimalistic instrumentation and rising, echoing synths, Fettuccine have created something entirely unique.
Speaking about the new release and how the project came about, Louis Abell of Fettuccine shares:
‘‘It started as something to do in lockdown 2021. I turned up at Sarah’s house with an audio interface and said ‘you’re learning Ableton’. From there we would send half-baked songs to each other and build on the production. It was a fun way to make music together without being in the same room. Our zoom and wine sessions were a substitute for social outings each week. It started off as something to do without intent and there was no pressure on the project, so we did anything we wanted to do in terms of production and songwriting. Because we had no one watching over us whilst recording or making production decisions, we really took the time to find our own style and voice in the music. Eventually, it got to the point where we had a full body of work and all the songs felt really good together. ‘
It’s a good job that the musical project turned into something more than just a hobby- we can only hope that Fettuccine can continue to grace us with more of the same.
