SINGLE & EP NEWS: Pop Vulture drop new single ‘Left For Dead’, debut EP ‘Another Success’ set For July release


Art-rock outfit Pop Vulture have shared new single ‘Left For Dead’ and announced their long-awaited debut EP ‘Another Success’ via Come Play With Me Records/EMI North due 5th July 2024.

Following new-wave post-punk hybrid first single ‘Comforting Lie’ which arrived earlier in the year, ‘Left For Dead’ is still full of experimentation and just as fiercely unrelenting. Stepping away from their guitars, they’ve crafted a sense of unease and reflection. Waves of viola and trombone wash over the track, as the pulsating synth bass and breakbeat-driven drums nod to the vibrant energy of the British 90s dance era.

Emerging from the Leeds’ DIY scene, Pop Vulture wield influences from the dissonance of the No-Wave movement and the unconventionality of post-punk and drape them over tightly-wound grooves. All of this simmers away underneath stream-of-consciousness themes, often of mental health and the relentlessness of living…

The debut EP sees PV pushing the boundaries of guitar music and culminating musical taste. From the rowdy, driving nature of punk and its commentary on social issues, to the pulsing flirtatiousness of electronic music, and experimental edges of alternative rock.
