The Pineapple Thief Go Under The Knife In Video For New Single Try As I Might

Thursday, 09 August 2018 Written by Helen Payne

With 'Dissolution' due at the end of August, the Pineapple Thief have shared a second cut from their new album.

Try As I Might, although less rhythm-focused than its predecessor Far Below, has crisp, clean percussion courtesy of King Crimson and Porcupine Tree drummer Gavin Harrison, to accompany solid guitar chords and thoughtful vocals from Bruce Soord. It’s the band’s second album to feature the drumming veteran, again putting this playing high up in the mix.

The video, meanwhile, sees Soord undergo eye surgery then swim away off the coast of Lyme Regis, a comment on our hyper-connected world and living with the consequences. Check it out below.

The Pineapple Thief have UK and European shows planned until March 2019.

James - Living In Extraordinary Times (Album Review)
Wed 08 Aug 2018
Listening to 'Living In Extraordinary Times', the thought occurs that indie-pop stalwarts James aren’t dissimilar to a shark. Such is the Manchester octet’s devotion to exploring fresh textures, with an insatiable forward momentum, that if they stop moving it’s likely they’ll immediately shuffle off to the great gig in the sky. Fortunately, if the band’s most recent output - and especially this effort - is anything to by, they won’t be playing chess with the Grim Reaper any time soon.

The Lemon Twigs - Go To School (Album Review)
Thu 30 Aug 2018
Rock operas are a risky business. If you pull it off, maybe with your own ‘Tommy’ or ‘Quadrophenia’, you’re forever heralded as a genius. If you fail, and produce something as aimless as it is pointless, you’re marked for the rest of your career as something of an overblown bore. Well, the Lemon Twigs have accepted the challenge. And in true Twigs fashion, it’s completely and utterly bananas.
