THE PURE CONJECTURE

About

<div><div>Armellodie Records is proud to present No Ghosts the third album from the geographically scattered collective, The Pure Conjecture. No Ghosts is the sound of friendship. When the world around collapses, friendship remains that hopeful constant and No Ghosts is the sound of that constant.

To eschew the virtues of the individual band members is to forgo a long, deep involvement and affiliation with a number of immense bands. Marc Beatty (Brakes), Joel Gibson (The Tenderfoot) Rose Elinor Dougall,Johny Lamb (Thirty Pounds of Bone) and Matthew Twaites (Electric Soft Parade) are brought together around the writing efforts of front-men Matt Eaton and Darren Moon (a modern day Nanker Phelge without the wrinkles) and within an industry of tempestuous greed and merciless careerism a calm naturally emerges. Gathering across several London writing and recording sessions in 2016, the band kicked out the jams and found a series of songs that rested in the warmth of Teenage Fanclub and Big Star, sparkled with the hairspray of Hall & Oates and tipped collegiate Nineties cap to the R&B Heroes of the day (Boyz II Men, Blackstreet).

<div> If that sounds disjointed, it’s not. This is as tight as a shiny new ship, anchored as it is by the Eaton-Moon vocal one-two that gracefully oscillates between falsetto and baritone, while the songs themselves are tightly inter-threaded by a deep understanding that two minor-seven chords played in sequence can set the world alight. Opener ‘We Can Only Ever Really Be Friends’ stomps with the workman-like grace of Sharon Jones; the chorus as big as the moon, the keyboard lines heart-breaking yet cheeky.
