Pirra - Your Parachute     Pop, Pop 25/05/2016
Pirra blends the poignancy and freshness of modern artists, with the charm of the old. The irresistible grooves combined with a subtle complexity, reflects the multi-cultural society they live in.
'Your Parachute' paints a picture of a turbulent romance, where an unguarded beginning gradually swells into a raging final chorus. The moody pop single is entirely self-produced and represents the next step forward for the Sydney band.
