On Pidgie’s They Took You Away, there’s an engrossing instrumental dynamic that ties together guitar and drums. This creates the perfect backdrop for her vocals, as they are able to immediately pull at listeners’ heart strings. The song itself builds off the more wind-swept performers of the 1980s, a laundry list of who’s who including Stevie Nicks and The Go-Gos. What Pidgie does to put her own spin on things is put a tenderness, a humanity that will immediately endear the single to fans. The song works in the rock context but will gain its most looks when placed into singer-songwriter playlists. We’re excited to hear more from Pidgie in the months and years to come.
