Indie electropop meets the smooth harmonies of second year electronic engineering student, Pierre Stemmett. With a debut EP, Outset, released in January, Stemmett is doing more with his melodic vocals than just starring in the Simonsberg sêr.

From the acoustic beats in ‘No Sweat’ to the deeper and darker vibes in ‘Ghost Club’, which are also Stemmett’s two favourite songs on the EP, it is easy to say that we can expect big things from this talented artist and vocalist.

According to Stemmett, he is still experimenting with different sounds, and his upcoming album is going to be more indie and weird. This album is set to be released later this year. He said he draws much of his inspiration for his original songs from short art films by using concepts or singing from the perspectives of the characters.

If you ever wondered what Troye Sivan vocals mixed with a little Jon Bellion and MGMT would sound like, Pierre Stemmett might be just that.

He has played a few gigs in Cape Town, so keep your eyes open for when you can catch him live again. Check out his Instagram (@pierrestemmett) for short acoustic covers, as well as previews of his EP, available for full download on Apple Music or go give it a listen on SoundCloud or Spotify.
