Experience Express Office Portico’s Infectious New Single, “He Said She Said”

“He Said She Said” offers another taste of the electrifying blend of melodic pop melodies with biting indie tendencies and washes of analog synth. Growing from its guitar intro, the track quickly introduces its driving drums, plucky bass, and melodic, pop-influenced lead vocals.

Vibrantly likable and catchy, “He Said She Said” is a brilliant example of relatable, accessible, yet interesting and heartfelt songwriting. Growing through its swelling synths and bright guitar tones, the track is pulled forward by the emotive, vibrant lead vocals that are joined by a brilliantly placed harmony into the track’s infectious chorus. Showcasing a restrained, tasteful, and perfectly minimal arrangement, the single retains a spacious brightness.

Capturing a breezy indie-pop tone comparable to the likes of Alvvays, Express Office Portico’s sound manages to balance its pop melodies with inventive indie instrumentation to great effect. Growing into its latter half, the track reaches a vibrant Tame Impala meets Men I Trust-esque half-time section before ending with a euphoric final chorus.

“‘He Said She Said’ is a dramatic retelling of an argument between two lovers. Written in the perspective of the instigator, it depicts the needed self-reflection that healthy arguments should often contain with a message that the true resolution to overcoming conflict is being able to admit your flaws and understand the other person’s perspective to meet a true middle ground.” – Express Office Portico explained

“He Said She Said” will be featured on Express Office’s hotly anticipated debut EP, “Incommunicado,” available on March 29th, 2024. Displaying the inventive, introspective themes covered across the upcoming project, the band has garnered significant attention with their unique blend of pop and ‘70s rock influences, earning praise from critics and fans alike.
