Pure Reason Revolution – Apprentice Of The Universe

Having already been hailed by Steve Lamacq as one of the top three acts to have played ‘In The City’; not bad for a debut gig. With that, and XFM picking up on an early demo, Pure Reason Revolution are placed to be one to watch. They have a big sound that is built from the harmonies between the four vocalists, the powerful use of the synths and keyboards, and the grandness of the guitars. Both ‘Apprentice Of The Universe’ and ‘Nimos & Tambos’ are like The Music duetting with The Beach Boys. This infectious West Coast meets psychedelia sound won’t fail to get you your dancing head on.
