Papa vs Pretty debut album “United in Isolation”

Papa vs Pretty and Peace and Riot Records are very happy and proud to announce that their debut album “United in Isolation” is not only “in the can”, it’s also looking and sounding pretty enough for them to want to unveil its wonders to the nation!

Thomas, Gus and Tom have been working up to this release through two EP’s, a single and a long gestation period. “United in Isolation”, out 27 May, is an impressive collection of songs which were initially conceived in a bedroom in Lilyfield, then given a bed of rhythmic muscle in the rehearsal room in Annandale before having the dual ear attack of Paul McKercher (You Am I, Augie March, Sarah Blasko)and Scott Horscroft (The Presets, Silverchair, The Sleepy Jackson) help the band commit their labour to tape in a most satisfactory fashion!

Single “One of the Animals” is the first taste from the album, and gives a good indication of the layer of muscle which hides underneath what is a complex and captivating collection of songs, a collection which in the words of main songwriter Thomas Rawle, “the album works in an arc, almost like a relationship”. Joyous, occasionally melancholic, and sometimes spitting and kicking, it’s an album which has a definable pulse, and a soul that belies the collective age of its creators.

Papa vs Pretty have an impressive reputation as a live act, and believe there is no better way for them to unveil their album to the nation other than to get in a room with some like minded souls and recreate a sweatier version of their labours on a sticky stage under some hot lights. Tom, Gus and Thomas therefore cordially invite you to come join them as they launch their debut album “United in Isolation” because, after all, what point is art if you can’t have a little fun with it?
