Puro Instinct Headbangers In Ecstasy on LP
Back in 2010, Mexican Summer came under the spell of the starry Kaplan sisters: Piper and Skylar, and their band Pearl Harbor, who graced the land with their beautific Something About the Chapparrals EP. But funny how time flies for the beyond their year siblings, for as of 2011 Pearl Harbor now goes by the name of Puro Instinct.
And Piper and Sky find themselves bolstered by four other bandmates: Cody Porter, Jessie Clavin, Mike Baum, and Crazy Murray to make their hazy, swirling pop even more realized and sumptuous. Think Fleetwood Mac, Bobb Trimble, and Lush in a champagne filled jacuzzi - but with a bit more sparkle and smog.
Puro Instinct's tasty first single "Stilyagi," off their breezy 2011 full-length debut Headbangers In Ecstasy, even features the helping hand of none other than fan and mate Ariel Pink, who took the group on tour in 2010 supporting Haunted Graffiti. Mr. Pink's background vocals ride the ambient rainclouds, drum machines and other sonic sparkles, all of it surrounding Piper's dreamy voice.
