Genre-Benders Purple Release Dynamic Single "Bliss," Album on the Way

Genre-Benders Purple Release Dynamic Single "Bliss," Album on the Way

Boisterous, versatile, and bursting with energy, Purple is a fun-loving trio of mischievous musical adventurers that steps over genre boundaries with grace and ease. Having issued their debut album (409) to a more than receptive audience last year, Purple’s upcoming April release Bodacious should shine even brighter with enhanced production from label Play It Again Sam. The album’s first single “Bliss” embraces a dream pop-influenced intro, a stark departure from Purple’s norm, but it then comes full circle to the band's rebellious, angst-riddled rock roots. Purple has tightened and manicured their sound to mirror other power pop groups like The Joy Formidable or Two Door Cinema Club, but their gritty Texan rock roots defiantly show through as well on this release, and we dig it at The Deli. Check it out on ‘Bliss” below, and watch their Facebook page for info on how to pick up the full Bodacious album soon.
