United In Isolation
Pre Order "United In Isolation" (Signed Copy with Bonus 7 track EP) from JB Hi-Fi
For their first full length release United In Isolation, Papa VS Pretty returned to Big Jesus Burger studios, surrounding themselves with several old hands who helped shape this acutely energetic, authentic and heartfelt collection of songs into a cohesive record. Paul McKercher (You Am I, Augie March, Sarah Blasko) produced, and the album was mixed by Scott Horscroft (The Presets, Silverchair, The Sleepy Jackson).
It’s powerful, it’s punchy but above all else it’s honest. Rawle describes this as having hints of a concept album – a realisation that the tracks in many ways depict the cyclical nature of human interaction as seen through a rather heightened self awareness. “The album works in an arc too, almost like a relationship, it starts out with an immense amount of energy "Life's Got A Hold On Me", optimistic in the middle with songs like "Honey" then conquest "Conquistador" - one half always wins. ‘I Felt Nothing’ for falling out of love, then it ends with ‘You Are Not In Love Anymore’, which is pretty self explanatory I would hope!”
The first single off the record, One Of the Animals is currently on rotation at Triple J and a national tour is in the works for June / July of this year to coincide with the release.
