Pure X are BACK! Their 2014 album Angel was thiiiiiiis close from making my Best 200 Albums of the 2010s list, and their two previous albums Pleasure and Crawling Up The Stairs have been in my regular rotation have also been in my constant rotation since their respective release dates in 2011 and 2013.
After a six year absence, the boys are BACK with a new, self-titled album coming May 1st via Fire Talk Records. This new song is more “rock-y” than a lot of their previous material, but still contains their essential ways of capturing the humid weight of malaise within their instrumentals and vocal delivery. “Middle America” is joined by another new song “Fantasy”, which you can listen to below. And while you’re at it, listen to Pure X’s discography again if you haven’t in a while! I’m sure you’ll find that it’s way better than you remembered.
