PinkPantheress is playfully wistful on “Angel”

PinkPantheress has released “Angel”, her contribution to the absolutely stacked Barbie the Album, from Greta Gerwig’s forthcoming Barbie movie.

“Angel” finds PinkPantheress slowing down the beats a little so she can get a bit more intimate, dreaming of the one that got away; how they used share their lives and interlock their fingers. Then, the most unexpected but great part: fiddles! Amplifying the country-style longing of the track, the strings rise and doodle through the atmosphere underlining PinkPantheress’ sadness at being ghosted. It shouldn’t work, but PinkPantheress makes it work – no wonder she can toss off a line like “everyone told me life was hard but it’s a piece of cake” without a second care.

Watch the visualizer for “Angel” below or find it on streamers.

Barbie the Album and Barbie (the movie) arrive on July 21.

You can find PinkPantheress on TikTok, Twitter and Instagram.
