English summers are a bittersweet experience – they’re warm and bright – but they’re brief, and often overshadowed by heavy showers. Fortunately, PURS have arrived just in time to ‘Tame’ our summery tempests with their pensive, powerful shoegaze sound.
The band’s debut single ‘Tame’ will appeal to fans of Alice in Chains, Lush, My Bloody Valentine, and Cocteau Twins. Their dazed and dreamy guitar riffs ring out over the sullen yet shimmery vocals of Serra Petale (who sounds like she’s stepped straight out of the ’90s alternative rock scene).
The track is available to listen to on Soundcloud, and is an exciting introductory offer from this London-based alternative group.
