Full of raucous guitar riffs, thudding beats and hefty vocals, London-based duo The Pearl Harts have shared a video for their new live single ‘Pullin’ My Brains Out’. Taken from the band’s new EP Live At The Drive-In, which they’ve released today (11th Dec), the single is accompanied by a monochrome video shot during the band’s post-lockdown drive-in show earlier this year.
The Pearl Harts – like most bands – were hit hard when the covid-19 pandemic put a stop to live music in March. As a band who have spent years cutting their teeth on the live circuit, the idea of performing from their bedrooms via Zoom didn’t feel quite right for Kirsty and Sara. So, once Lockdown 1.0 was lifted, the duo decided to put together a “dystopian drive-in” gig in South London. Teaming up with their friends VC London – the UK’s only all-female motorcycle crew – they set up a stage in an industrial yard and unleashed their raucous rock and roll sounds on to a socially distanced crowd.
Whilst recording this new EP briefly quenched the band’s thirst for playing live to an audience, The Pearl Harts are hoping that in 2021 things will be a little different. “[While we were] no longer able to write and play together in the same space, we embraced technology [which] allowed us to write songs remotely for a new album that we’re really excited about,” the duo explain. Here’s hoping we’ll be hearing this new record in the flesh as soon as it’s safe to do so again.
