Release Date: Out Now
One of my favourite finds of 2018 was Leeds based outfit Purple Thread so it’s great to have them back with us courtesy of new single ‘Something Good’. The quartet get down to business with a circular buzz saw riff that reminds me of Band of Skulls, the Joy Formidable or Turbowolf but then come the vocals of Liz Mann, dripping in attitude and style, making this a decidedly aggressive but sexy tune. Channelling the likes of Suzi Quatro with a glam-rock engine power this hog along, Purple Thread have the chops to make this kind of song fly in the live environment but it’s also massively powerful in this recorded version so either way they’re on to a winner.
