Manchester’s Purple Heart Parade are set to release their third EP on January 10th through premiere post-rock ambassadors Club AC30. The EP is titled Desolation Angel and it is made up of five tracks, one of which we are premiering today, ‘Petrichor’. If the premiere track is any indication, the EP will be an incredible release. ‘Petrichor’ is a beautiful wash of perfect sound. With its dreamy vocals and guitar work that fluctuates between dreamy and soaring, this wall of sound will make you want to hit the repeat button over and over.
“Once again the band recorded at Perry Vale Studios with Pat Collier (The Jesus and Mary Chain, X–Ray Spex). Moving on from their last record which was largely emotional and cathartic, Desolation Angel is optimistic, romantic and mature. “Life’s a roller-coaster through the heavens. You’ll hit some soul destroying lows, but just up the track you know you’re going to hit some heavenly highs. The EP is also about being true to yourself, standing up for your beliefs, doing your own thing, even though it’s not considered cool. It’s also about freeing yourself from negative situations in all aspects of life and cleansing yourself of them.””
That all sounds just about right to me.
