Pirra - Wake Me

Pirra - Wake Me
For Pirra, the past year has been a maelstrom of gigs, writing and recording. Based in Sydney, they are now putting the finishing touches on their debut album, which is due for release later this year.

To record the bulk of the album, they spent a month in the Nambucca Valley, NSW. Being in the bush, and away from the distractions of city life allowed them to focus entirely on sculpting their new sound. A sound turning more and more heads with its artful balance of complex grooves, atmospheric ambience and pop structures.

The four-piece consists of singer Jess Beck, guitarist James McKendry and identical twins Jeffrey and Curtis Argent on drums and bass respectively. They each grew up in rural Australia, and moved to Sydney to further their artistic careers. Whereupon they met and bonded through their passion for music.

The band is very much a family affair. With twins, and a relationship (Jess and Curt) there is a tight knit connection that is extended to the audience during their live shows.

With shows booked, a string of singles set for release, and an album to back it up, Pirra is looking onwards and upwards.

About this track...

The track opens with an dreamy ambient wash which is relieved by the opening lyric "Somebody Wake Me". Crunchy guitar riffs are complemented by the relentless pulse of the drums. Edgy vocals meet soaring synths to make this one hell of a track to entice everyone to the dance floor.
