Joining me on this week’s show is the psychedelic rock band Purson.
For a band that have only been producing music in the last four years, it’s surprising how far this small collective from London, England have come. With elements from the seventies, combined with a raw and unique kaleidoscope of contemporary rock, Purson have captured a timeless frequency that could be seen as all too familiar to the avid rock fan, yet the band have produced a new spin on the era and forced signatures and melodies that are currently missing in today’s musical climate.
Tune in this week, as I catch up with vocalist Rosalie Cunningham in San Francisco to chat about their support slot on Ghost‘s “Black to the future” tour of the United States. Plus we discuss the bands success and the upcoming new album ‘Desire’s Magic Theatre’.
With tracks like “Leaning On A Bear” and “The Contract” it’s hard not to see why Purson made No.15 in Metal Hammer‘s best 50 Albums 2013 and were also nominated for Best New band in Classic Rocks’s 2014 Rock Roll Of Honour held in Los Angeles. With appearances at major festivals including the legendary Roadburn, they have also toured with numerous occult-inspired acts like Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats, Electric Wizard, Blood Ceremony and Seventies legends Pentagram.
With their well crafted stage presence, it would only seem fit for them to hit the US shores in support of Ghost’s Black to the future tour.
A new single ‘Electric landlady’ has recently been released and is taken from their upcoming new album ‘Desire’s Magic Theatre’ which is to be released via Spinefarm Records in Spring 2016. Check out the video below:
Purson are most certainly a band to keep a close eye on, as they step towards carving themselves a permanent niche in the classic rock circuit.
