It seems that New York duo Purr have been busy since we last heard from them. With a new album Take You Back announced for release in February, they’ve just dropped the lead single “Hard To Realize” and you should be stunned at how lush it is in its overall sound.
The way the vocals are performed, there’s a heft that they bring to the opening of the track. Choral moments and dual touches make them fall upon your ears perfectly. With intertwined instrumentation that sounds more vast than that of a duo, the song feels closer to symphonic pop, showcasing the depths of the two piece. Stirring and engaging, it should excite you for what their full length will ultimately sound like.
The video can be viewed above or on YouTube. The song is available to stream wherever you stream music. Take You Back can be preordered directly from Anti Records in multiple formats and bundles ahead of its February 21 release. Purr will be performing on November 21 at The Sultan Room at The Turk’s Inn in Brooklyn, NY.
