“From mind-bending krautrock odyssey to MPV-like” NME
“Wonderfully offbeat… all wit and verve, maturity and inspiration” Clash Magazine
“An especially earthy brand of dream-pop” Stereogum
“A mellifluous marriage of 90s noise-rock bite and heart-swelling melodicism” Q Magazine
“Saturated sounds, glistening guitars and a penchant for masterfully constructed songs” Artrocker
Princess have announced the release of new single ‘Black Window’ on March 2nd 2015, as well as UK and European tour dates with US act Ex Hex this February.
Following the success of their previous singles ‘Neverlook’ and ‘Molly’, as well as tour supports with Girl Band, Girls Names, Cloud Nothings and September Girls, the duo have now begun to abandon their shoegaze tendencies for a darker, eerier and more direct sound as displayed on the new release.
Mixing dream-like experimentation with elements of Krautrock, ambient-noise rock and psych-garage, Princess create simple song structures balanced against a sonic rise and fall, and with a firm grounding in melody, rhythm and noise.
New single ‘Black Window’ draws from the minimal repetition of Can with the lilting, psychotic melodies of Silver Apples, cascading into a cacophony of noise that ends with a beautiful, yet uncomfortable, vocal line that alludes to a radio channel being hastily changed. A harsh and unsettling, yet captivating, song that ends as abruptly as it begins.
‘Black Window’ is released on March 2nd 2015, available with b-side ‘Sick Ties’ on 5” card wallet CDs, as well as from all good digital stores and thatsoprincess.bandcamp.com
