Remote Control Records have announced the signing of Melbourne glam-pop outfit Pearls to the Dot Dash / Remote Control Records for the worldwide release of their debut album Pretend You’re Mind in February 2015. Pearls join Remote Control Records ever increasing Australian roster which already includes the likes of Courtney Barnett, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Client Liaison, Saskwatch, Klo, Velociraptor & Sunbeam Sound Machine. Today Pearls premiere their hypnotic first single ‘Big Shot’.
First single ‘Big Shot’ stomps along with chants and melody. The track bores into your head with its catchy dual vocals, claps and perfectly placed guitar. To celebrate their signing and release of their first single Pearls are excited to announce a Melbourne single launch show where they will showcase sounds from their fourth-coming debut release. Pearls will play at Hugs & Kisses in Melbourne onSaturday 29th of November with support from Terrible Truths, Empat Lima, DJ Geoffrey O ‘Connor & Liege Jansen.
Melbourne three-piece Pearls formed in 2011 and since then have made shimmering sounds that float above their peers. In their time as a band Pearls have supported the likes of Kurt Vile, Marnie Stern, Sons & Daughters, and a myriad of local bands including Crime and City Solution, Total Control & New War. In 2013 Pearls released a split 7” on Glaswegian label RE:PEATER Records and recorded a cover of the Standells’ ‘Dirty Water’ for an Australian 40th Nuggets compilation. Pearls’ debut EP ‘Wait & See’ was full of reverb-drenched, ethereal vocals and a hefty dose of beautiful noise.
