Petrie ‘Texting You’

You might like Texting You by Petrie. With a bedroom raw production, the track grows on you with each listen. The London duo reveals how the track came about, “well it was a beat poem, then a jazz ballad, then a sorta fruity bop and then eventually we decided to fuse the styles of Dolly Parton and Not3s and write a torch song for the risky text with more than a sprinkling of neuroticism.

Why was its success a surprise? Well, despite her success as a writer, recording artist and live attraction, Gentry vanished from public l...
