Purr is the New York based project which includes Eliza Barry Callahan and Jack Staffen. They announce the debut album Like New which was produced by Jonathan Rado (Weyes Blood, Father John Misty, Whitney, The Lemon Twigs) and which will be released on February 21, 2020 via ANTI-. We already shared “Hard to Realize”; “Avenue Bliss” is a new excerpt. Watch the official video directed by Guy Kozak.
“With this music video, I wanted to make something that was sinister and playful at the same time, drawing from the way the song evolves from a wistful ballad into something more like an upbeat disco track,” Kozak said. “In developing the concept, I looked at a lot of Jim Henson and Norman McLaren shorts as well as early Disney cartoons for inspiration, ending up somewhere along the lines of Phenomena meets Snow White meets… Downton Abbey. It was a bit of an odd pitch, but Eliza and Jack got it straight away and fit right in.”
