‘Telethon‘ is a powerful track about the frustration of relationships, and the second single (after ‘Rule the Day’) to be taken from duo Perpacity‘s forthcoming album, ‘The Order of Now‘ which is to be released in September 2018, hard on the heels of the band’s recent live performance at the Synthetic City London Festival in London in March of this year.
Although their music is electronic at heart, it’s growing increasingly difficult to place their songs in any particular genre, as the band readily agree.
Martin Nyrup: “We’re not on a nostalgia trip, trying to recreate the past. What we write depends on how we feel, and what’s going on in our lives in any given month. Quite a few of the new songs were written with the gig in mind, and that’s given the new album as a whole more energy and a different feel to the previous two. Experiences like that can’t help but influence your music, it makes you think much more about what you want people to take from it when they’re standing right in front of you.”
Martin, who handles the music and production on all of the band’s tracks, has been particularly busy over the last few years, writing with and producing for various other artists and with their prolific output, you would be forgiven for thinking the pair live in each other’s pockets – but in fact they have rarely met since forming the band some 8 years ago, Harling living in the UK and Nyrup in Denmark.
Ian Harling: “I think it helps a lot. We’re not under pressure because of studio costs, and we can spend as much time as we like knocking things backwards and forwards until we’re happy with them, but really it’s the freedom we have to take each song wherever we personally want to take it. We have different musical tastes, and if we were working in the same room we’d probably be constantly arguing. But, this way, somehow we end up with songs we both like, usually somewhere outside what we would each usually listen to.”
‘Telethon’ is released 22nd of June 2018.
Perpacity members are Ian Harling and Martin Nyrup residing in the UK and in Denmark respectively. Each has over 20+ years of musical experience, ranging from writing music and live performance to studio work and music production. Perpacity creates strong melodic songs and melodies, characterized by their unique dark and moving electronic soundscapes.
Perpacity released their debut album ‘The Sinner Inclination’ early 2015 which consisted of a back catalogue material of their early instrumentals and songs. Since then Perpacity have released several well-received singles, amongst these are ‘Obscene’, ‘Save Me’ and ‘Volatile Cohesion’.
2016 saw the release of their highly acclaimed 14 track album ‘Arise’.
September 2018 Perpacity will release their anticipated third studio album ‘The Order Of Now’.
