Alliteration rock rules ok. Sheffield’s Perfectparachutepicture go deep and heavy on their new single ‘Silhouette’.
Perfectparachutepicture – Silhouette
‘Silhouette’ see’s one of Sheffield’s bright prospects, the uniquely named Perfectparachutrepicture, take their alt-rock sound to even greater heights, adding even more dynamics and catchy melodies to accompany their ever-developing distorted bass riffs and thrilling percussion.
Discussing the single, the band shares:
“Silhouette is a deep look into yourself, not really knowing what you see. We can recognise our past self, but we don’t really know that person anymore and we don’t understand what it is that’s changed. The heart of the song is about the realisation that we all change as people, but it questions if it’s us changing ourselves, or if it’s the effect of the world around us. The song is melancholic at times but the acceptance in the lyrics, ‘you can’t change who you are, it’s the change around you’ show that sometimes, we just have to accept our fate and roll with it.”
Recalling the thrilling buzz of ‘Villians’ era Queens of The Stone Age ‘Silhouette’ is an immense wake-up call with a cacophony of juggernaut-sized riffs, pounding rhythms and catchy melodies.
The most surprising thing to know is this is created by just two people. Kyle Ernest (drums and vocals) and Edward James (bass). The duo are already making huge strides throughout the UK rock scene with a string of thumping singles, and a must-see live show.
Their 2021 EP ‘White Walls’ saw the band gain extensive airplay from the likes of BBC Radio 6 Music, Radio X, Amazing Radio, local BBC Introducing shows and worldwide airplay in the USA, France, the Netherlands, Canada, Australia and South America to name a few.
The band’s single ‘Idea’ also picked up support from Spotify who featured the song on their ‘All New Rock’, ‘New Punk Tracks’ and ‘The Punk List’ playlists, with the latter featuring the song in the playlist for almost six straight months. Their most recent single released in February of this year went even further and landed the band their first ever Radio 1 play on Jack Saunders’ evening show, and was John Kennedy’s Radio X X-Posure ‘Hot One’ being played four times in two weeks.
