Perpacity’s ‘Rule the Day’ is the first single from their next album release ‘The Order Of Now’, due out later in 2018, which follows 2016’s successful album ‘Arise’. The bands members, musician and producer, Martin Nyrup and vocalist/guitarist Ian Harling describe the song as an anthem for those who want to make their own life choices. Neither are strangers to non-conformity and variety in their projects and lives – they´ve also co-written three popular books together on psychological magic, or ‘mentalism’, which uses hypnosis, NLP, suggestion, and downright deceit, to create effects like those performed by people such as Derren Brown and David Blaine.
“I think we have a low boredom threshold,” says Nyrup. “We want our lives – and music – to continue to change and grow all the time. We try to write in a very natural way, following whatever kind of music that comes out of us rather than staying within one specific genre. This has helped us develop our own style to some extent, and even we find it impossible to know what we might end up doing over the coming years – and nothing could be a more exciting prospect.”
Perpacity members are Ian Harling and Martin Nyrup residing in the UK and in Denmark respectively. Each has over 20+ years of musical experience, ranging from writing music and live performance to studio work and music production. Perpacity creates strong melodic songs and melodies, characterized by their unique dark and moving electronic soundscapes.
Perpacity released their debut album ‘The Sinner Inclination’ early 2015 which consisted of a back catalogue material of their early instrumentals and songs. Since then Perpacity have released several well-received singles, amongst these are ‘Obscene’, ‘Save Me’ and ‘Volatile Cohesion’. 2016 saw the release of their acclaimed 14 track album ‘Arise’. 2018 will see the release of the new Perpacity album ‘The Order Of Now’, which they currently chose to describe as very ‘3D’ (Dark, Daring and Delightful)
Rule the Day is all about not being a slave to what has gone before but about taking back control and action. Starting with a bubbling effect from the synth, which reminded me of Yazoo, the haunting backing singing heralds the vocals which have an ethereal feel. The swoops of the instrumentation make this feel as though it has come from a different world. The vocals are deep and evocative and have a velvet like quality which is at odds with the unsettling nature of the instrumentation. That said, there is much to like about this track, particularly if you are a child of the 80’s who grew up with tracks featuring heavy synths and different concepts than the norm.
I liked the track and will be interested to hear the album to see if it delivers the same off kilter, questioning quality that they have managed here.
