“Singles 2017” album review by Andrew Barclay

 Checking the info on ‘PMKs’ FB page you’ll see the following;

“The Band formed May 2014 in Los Angeles, CA. PMK has recorded 6 studio Albums and 5 E.P.s since the inception. The CD "Little Black Heart" was released on November 4th of 2016 and the new “SINGLES CD” will be out summer 2017. PMK's sound is a mix of old 80's synth pop (The Cure, Duran Duran, David Bowie), 90's Goth Rock (Marilyn Manson, Plabeco) and a little bit of all dance genres”

It’s always hard to condense a band’s sound into a neat little paragraph so needless to say there’s way more going on within the Californian groups music than what’s listed above, and the only way to know for sure is to dive in for a listen.

The groups forthcoming CD is simply called ‘Singles 2017’ is littered with semi industrial dark electronic gothic guitar pop with lush female backing vocals and seriously cool lead vocals by front-man Valentine Mache. Although there’s plenty of exciting Primal Scream type faster dark tracks like ‘Blank Photographs’ and ‘Down The Rabbit Hole’, it’s the steamier slower electronic funk of ‘Who Do You Think You Are’ (the latter being my track of the year) or the heart tugging ‘Erase Me’ me stand out the most. I assume the idea is that all 17 tracks will be released as singles throughout next year as this albums slated for a November 2017 release but luckily for you these awesomely contemporary singles can be freely streamed on the band’s Sound-Cloud page.

Papar Mache Kisses are an electronic cool cacophony of excellence and should be on any serious music fan’s list of bands to check out.
