ARTIST: Purepleaser

RELEASE: Park Lane 3333

RELEASE DATE: 13th January 3017

RECORD COMPANY: Unsigned

‘Park Lane 3333’ is the latest release from Purepleaser (LA-based Bryan Newruck), coming hot on the heels of a full length album entitled ‘Den Mothers’ released last September.

The record opens in a confusion of brass and nursery rhyme all as warped as Alice in Wonderland. Dark melodies beckon from Sway & Sway, but there’s a glimmer in amongst the crash and growl. Light and air flood in for One Day, a slowdance with a difference. Closing track Film Score 1 (John Hughes Where Are You?) moves from foreboding to psychedelic ballad complete with backward vocals samples and shimmering keyboards – beautiful and definitely too weird to feature in any of the movies that may have inspired it.
