Pearls ‘Pretend You’re Mine’ With Confident New Track


After releasing SPIN Singles Mix entry “Big Shot,” glam-rock trio Pearls return with an assertive new single titled “Pretend You’re Mine,” the title track to their forthcoming LP. Marching in with a “Call Me”-worthy stomp, the Victoria, Australia three-piece layer fuzzy, echoey vocals over stomping percusion and disco-era synths. The lyrics themselves are at times too washed out to hear, but that’s hardly a problem — it’s the Marnie Stern-meets-A Place to Bury Strangers guitar textures within “Pretend You’re Mine” that make the fuzzed-out song wonderfully engaging. Pretend you’re theirs below, and look out for the aforementioned LP when it drops on February 20 via Remote Control/Dot Dash Records
