Welsh noise rock and industrial band Purple Glass have returned with their new single Laundering Diamonds, a single that looks at often overlooked aspects of society. Members Evan Davies and Randell Denning craft a single that, while clear in its purpose, never talks down to the listener and allows them to draw their own conclusions. The duo, who are currently working on an album, use this single to show what they do best.
The duo allows the vocals and lyrics to be front and center in this song, leaning on the simpler side for the riff/rhythms. This is not to say those are weaker by any means – by contrast, the simplicity of the riffs allows them to become universal, bringing forth visions of dancing in mosh pits. This song scratches an itch of sorts that very few bands really do, making this an easy recommendation for any fan of acts like Nine Inch Nails.
The group aims to “represent where we believe is a lack of experimental yet, concise rock music in the guise of the noise and industrial subgenres on the radio and we believe our music represents a gap in the market and what we ourselves enjoy listening to. We provide thought provoking social commentary that doesn’t ask you to pick a side merely to understand the nuances of situations and events and come to your own conclusions.”
