NEWS: Perpacity announce new LP ‘Arise,’ share ‘9725’

Following on from their debut album The Sinner Inclination last year, British-Danish pop duo Perpacity are gearing up to release their sophomore LP Arise in October.  Echoing Depeche Mode and Erasure, Ian Harling and Martin Nyrup make synthpop music that’s swathed in electronic soundscapes and texture, something that’s only set to develop on the new LP.

To tease what’s in store with the new record, the pair have shared the elegant new single ‘9725.’  Harling said of the track: “The song ‘9725’ was very much like that; it started out as a really gritty instrumental, but every time I listened to it I could hear lyrics and a melody within it.  When you work on tracks like that, there’s a feeling that the song is writing itself, and you simply have to help it come out.  On the surface it’s a standard love song, but there is also a second level of meaning there.”  Listen below.

Talking about the new album, Nyrup commented: “When we set out to write the new album we agreed to not try to go for a specific mood, theme or atmosphere – that whether a song or a track made the initial cut depended purely on whether we like it and whether it speaks to us.  We purposely allowed other genres to influence what came out of each song […]  We get a bit blues-ish here and there, and even go a bit Celtic in one track with an amazing collaboration we had with violinist Bethany Borg of Nordik Fire.  We like to think there is something for everybody here.”
