“A tupperware party was an event hosted by pyramid sellers in the mid-20th century to sell tupperware products to their friends. I thought it would make the perfect backdrop for this story – even the background characters are desperate to break out of suburban monotony. Tupperware Party is about a wall-street banker who hates his life, so embarks on a quest to find his first love, a girl from his improv group in college.”
At first it seems a little odd that a young woman from Southend would be singing about activities of middle-aged Americans set some decades before her birth – but it quickly becomes apparent that she has the intelligence and poise to pull it off. Despite the shifted setting, “Tupperware Party” still connects to Bleach’s favourite topics of hopeless people looking for love – and when it’s projected over simple but undeniable classic pop sounds, it’s an absolute winner. She effortlessly brings a cinematic quality to this tale of a desperate man going on a mid-life mission to find an old flame, her careful tones adding heart-rending depth to their disappointment.
