I remember Sandwell writing about this band a year ago, but I'd never heard of them at the time. Much to my surprise, their first 7 inch, Rocking Horse, sold out incredibly quick, and with Sandwell making comparisons to Blood Ceremony, I was disappointed to have missed out. To this day, I've still haven't heard this record. Thankfully, Rise Above pressed plenty of copies for Purson's new 7 inch single, Leaning On A Bear, so I'm not left having to pay out the ass on eBay for this one.
If this 7 inch is any indication, Purson's new LP, Circle and the Blue Door, is going to be amazing. A few years ago, I wouldn't have expected to like this brand of female-fronted occult rock...and I can see the style getting played out pretty quickly...but right now, I'm eating this shit up.
Sure the band look like total douchebags, but damn, their singer certainly has my attention.
