The Purrs
Rotting On The Vine Fin Records 7”

Article written by Ged M - Jan 17, 2013

The Purrs, from Seattle, have been going a decade but this is the first we’ve heard from them. We’re impressed, though, by the mix of melodic psych-pop and guitar-heavy shoegaze on this single. ‘Rotting On the Vine’ is effervescent psych-pop with some biting lyrics to go with the catchy choruses; a generous helping of fuzzy wah-wah guitars rounds off three-and-a-half minutes of serotonin-stimulating pop. ‘You, The Medicine And Me’ switches to a darker track: male, then female, voices succeed each other as the chugging, heavy-psych sound is replaced by effects-laden guitars strobing like supernovas. There’s method in the madness, though and the intense interplay leaves you woozier than a session on the Night Nurse. A good advert for forthcoming album The Boy With Astronaut Eyes then.
