Silky Eyes by Puro Instinct
According to Puro Instinct vocalist Piper Kaplan, "We recently got back from a very wholesome North American tour with Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti and Magic Kids. No one got arrested and we made it to every show." Ahem. For your enjoyment Piper and her guitarist-sister Sklyar and the whole P.I. army recently stopped by Room 205 to perform a few spaced-out dream jams from that "very wholesome" tour.
Founding Puro Instinct (formerly Pearl Harbor) members Piper and Skylar Kaplan began playing together in the summer of '08 with no experience and no idea what they were getting themselves into. After a year or so, they put together a proper band (Dodi Porter, Jessie Clavin, Mike Baum, and Crazy Murray) to begin crafting their ethereal pop confections. Armed with a barrage of gorgeously intertwining guitar lines, vocals drenched in swooning reverb, and a subtle tsunami of dark synth melodies, Puro Instinct aim to release their debut full-length on Mexican Summer in Spring 2011. If you've ever wondered what it might sound like if Nico were to start a band with Felt on a beach in Malibu, here you go.
