On The Table Read Magazine, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, Los Angeles based neo-psychedelic indie rock band Pearl Earl release new album It’s Dread about a capitalistic and patriarchal society captivated by celebrity worship and consumerism.
Neo-psychedelic rock project of multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter Ariel Hartley Pearl Earl was formed in Denton, TX in 2014. After debuting as a three piece, the band now consists of a rotating cast of original and touring members including Bailey K Chapman, Stefanie Lazcano, Chelsey Danielle, Teddy Georgia Waggy and Leeza V.
Since its birth as a bedroom project on Hartley’s laptop while she was at college, Pearl Earl has been in constant evolution and shape-shifting. With heavy nods to spacey prog and golden era glam rock, Pearl Earl invokes the cosmic nostalgia of the past while carving new territory of its own psychedelic universe.
Pearl Earl have shared bills with bands such as Death Valley, Girls, Oh Sees, Post Animal, The Black Angels, Acid Dad, Frankie and The Witch Fingers, Black Lips during several U.S tours across the U.S., and have played major festivals such as Levitation and SXSW.
Now primarily based in Los Angeles and north Texas, Pearl Earl has released their sophomore record titled It’s Dread via Green Witch Recordings in NYC. Recorded in Los Angeles by Tomas Dolas (Mr. Elevator, Oh Sees) at Studio 22, It’s Dread explores a darker theme of existential crisis in an apocalyptic world.
The first album single, Evil Does it is a squealing symphony of woozy synths and reverberating rhythms, fans of the likes of Pond and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard are in for a treat. A laid back, drunkenly rhythmic, swinging pace shows that this isn’t a track that takes itself too seriously, and Pearl Earl doesn’t shy away from bringing in any sound they see fit and weaving it into melody.
