It’s fairly rare to stumble across a track which is as scuzzy and as anthemically gripping as Perfectparachutepicture’s quite frankly filthy Alt Rock single “Cigarettes”. But that’s just the first aural juxtaposition which you will come to appreciate as you listen to the first single which has been released from their upcoming debut album “No Modern Desire”.
While caustic energy oozes from the instrumental arrangement, Perfectparachutepicture’s vocalist and drummer Kyle Ernest layers the track with sticky sweet Indie harmonics which are fairly reminiscent to Alex Turner’s (Arctic Monkeys). Yet, Kyle seems to effortlessly exude the abrasive swagger Turner wishes he had, transforming the track into a euphoric Noise Rock perennial earworm. But it definitely makes a lot of sense that Perfectparachutepicture hail from the very same Northern town; Sheffield, UK.
Even though their debut album is still three months from release, Perfectparachutepicture first saw their inception back in 2013 giving them plenty of time to ensure that their sound was stylistically mature enough to release what is set to be a masterpiece of an album if Cigarettes is anything to go by. In that time they’ve won over plenty of people through their live performances as a local band as they have proven to be a sonically charged powerhouse with their live sets, but it’s probably about time that the rest of the country put Perfectparachutepicture on their radars.
No review of Cigarettes would ever be complete without a mention to the unrelenting distorted bass rhythms offered by Edward James, the tight reverberant progressions sit against the drums as the basslines lead the soundscape through a frenzy of fuzzy visceral magnetism. The duo’s high-octane serving of Alt Noise Rock which lends influence from a myriad of genres such as Pop Rock, Punk, and Garage Rock is undoubtedly something which you’re going to have to check out for yourselves, here’s the official music video.
PPP’s debut album “No Modern Desire” is available to pre-order now, and it is set to be released on September 6th, 2019.
