Pure X is an emerging band from Austin, Texas that has a new album coming out very soon entitled Crawling Up The Stairs. This new record has them honing their songwriting skills instead of opting for the more experimental approach that they showcased on their previous album Pleasure.
Crawling Up The Stairs sounds like the band has found an inner calm in regards to their songwriting. Single “Thousand Year Old Child” unfolds slowly, gradually adding a bit of buzz to the wash of guitar and muted drum hits. As the song comes to an end, Pure X dazzles us with some huge swells of vocals and reverb-heavy guitars.
If you’re into a mellow mix of eclectic, psychedelic songwriting, then this album is for you.
