Neo-psychedelic rockers Pearl Earl return with the hypnotic new single ‘Evil Does It’ taken from their upcoming sophomore album. With heavy nods to spacey prog and golden era glam rock, these cosmic women invoke the nostalgia of psychedelia’s lysergic past while carving new territory of its own. Once described as ‘Pink Floyd in the sunlight’ the band are renowned for their captivating live performances delivered with a euphoric and ominous grin.
The new single ‘Evil Does It’ is a snarling glimpse into the kind of biting, intense musical experience you can expect on the upcoming album. The song introduces itself as a campy stomp with a sinister swing featuring pulsing analogue synths, warbling guitar lines, and a bouncing pink panther-esque bass riff that marries Iggy Pop’s ’Nightclubbing’ via swaying drums. The scorpion sting of the vocals add a biting intensity to the track, reinforcing the entrancing nature of the 4-pieces unique sound.
Speaking on the single the band share: “Evil Does It is about the nature of man, with capitalism being a reflection of that nature. The song represents the frustration of being an inferior to the people in power of the world ; who’s morals are rooted in selfishness and greed.
Founded in 2014 in Denton, TX, Pearl Earl have toured the nation and have played many festivals around the U.S. including SXSW, Levitation Austin, Norman Music Festival , River Revival, Freakout Fest Seattle, and Fortress Fest. Having gained acclaim from the likes of Bandcamp Daily, Impose Mag and Tom Tom Mag, the band will be releasing their sophomore album (recorded with Tomas Dolas of Mr. Elevator and Oh Sees) in 2023 on Green Witch Records.
