Pruillip is a new Belgian band founded by Louis Evrard (Bert Dockx Band, Grid Ravage, Ottla) and Annelies Van Dinter (Echo Beatty, Takh & Naga Ghost).
The duo started about 2 years ago after a request to play at De Nor, the open air sculpture park and venue of Dennis Tyfus. For this occasion Annelies and Louis decided to do a position switch and play each other’s instruments: Annelies beating the hell out of the drums and Louis ripping up the guitar.
Their music may be described best as ‘compelling’, ‘hypnotic’, ‘loud’ and reminiscent of the sound of the legendary ‘Earth’ from the ’90s.
Visceral meditation: that’s what the self titled debut album of Pruillip is all about.
Watch the video for “Boterham”
Eight songs channeling elemental emotions, kickin’ deep into the internal organs of the body.
Low end frequency swagger droning up from Louis Evrard’s amp, ready to slip into ‘Place All Your Cards’, slow burning sludge nugget, bolstered by the steady drum kicks of Annelies Van Dinter, where every note and strike seems to carry the weight of the world. Navigating through life, seducing you with her gloomy voice. Entering a quest into the unknown, a place you don’t want to leave. A feeling increased by the abrasive and brutal “Boterham,” a punk sludge anthem for the hungry and the wild at heart, countered with the reverb-shrouded murmur “Distracted Enthusiasm.” The lonely “Zonnedauw” sets the mark of an apparently more resigned B-side, stretching the Pruillip universe with primitive,but so addictive, riffs in “Mirrors,” echoing vibes of 90’s desert sessions while “Offload” and the lucid state of “Ataraxia” seems to drift on raw emotions and a sweaty claustrophobic tension, which would fit perfectly in Wim Wenders Paris Texas movie. A whirlwind of a record, straight to the bone, leaving you flabbergasted and wanting for more.
Pruillip’s self titled debut is available now for pre-order on Bandcamp.
