Pleasure House – Calm
Birmingham quartet Pleasure House have announced the release of their brand new single Calm, the first instalment from their five-track Sentient EP out 26th May.
Forming part of a new wave of acts currently reinvigorating the city’s music scene, the indie rockers easily incorporate elements of Peace and Swim Deep in their sound to create their own unique offering. Bursting with infectious overtones and an irresistible intensity, Calm lays down a real marker ahead of the band’s string of live dates across the country, following on from support slots with the likes of Sundara Karma, Black Honey and Fickle Friends.
Discussing the release, frontman Alex Heffernan stated: “I’d been feeling increasingly disaffected, like many others’ guilty of scrolling through torrents of hateful rhetoric and petty politics that add to the fragile disparity within our society, creating a war amongst ourselves. I wrote Calm as a protest song against this. It’s what I feel myself screaming at my screen, constantly exposed to a carefully calculated war on peace, feeling angry and afraid and helpless all at the same time. I wanted to write a song with a message of hope. A message of positivity and resistance that would resonate with everyone who feels disaffected too, because it feels like there’s conscious change in the air, and we should never allow fear to forget who our real enemy is.”
Produced by Bruce Rintoul (Twin Atlantic, Fatherson, Vukovi), Pleasure House’s Calm is released on 7th April.
