Aim for Purple Target

Texan three-piece Purple have confirmed a new single ‘Target’ and UK dates [see below].

Purple are a 3-piece thunderflash of rock excitement from Beaumont comprising of Taylor on guitar and vocals, Hanna on drums and vocals and Joe on bass guitar.

We had a listen to “Target” :

The coarse riff stamps along like a pedal-powered belt grinder – and the voice of Hanna is chewy, cheeky and beautifully volatile – reminiscent of Chrissy Amphlett (Divinyls) in aptitude.

The super-abrasives on this track are provided by the fuzz guitar and the radial fibres of bass.

This song tapers outwards, towards the end – but the gemstone-cut percussion remains to excite – especially when the electric guitar knife-fishes into view.
