Following up her 2021 EP Tinka and a string of singles last year, Prudns is back with the first single from her forthcoming album, with the buoyant & bouncy sounds of Goodnight premiering on Pilerats a day ahead of release.

The alias of Prudence Illingworth, Prudns refers to her music as “hyper-ethereal-pop”, with the description being completely accurate when it comes to the pulsating sounds Prudns crafts that owe as much to IDM as they do alt-pop, as heard on new single Goodnight.

Opening with deep, swelling synths and Prudns striking vocals, Goodnight soon gives way to rolling reese bass and shuffling UKG style drums, with additional keys and synths sprinkled throughout without stealing any of Prudns’ voice’s thunder that deliver an emotional narrative of love and loss, was inspired by her pursuit of music after a period of doubt.

Prudns explains: "Last year, I was at a precipice: do I follow my musical dreams or commit to a relationship? 'Goodnight' was written after I made the decision to focus on music. It is an anthem for those in-between feelings, like when you love someone but aren't able to be with them. Goodnight is the first single off my debut album which explores the relationships that shaped my twenties.”

Give Goodnight a spin ahead of its August 9 release, and stay tuned for more new music from Prudns ahead of her album, set for a November release.
