Public Practice Announce Debut LP 'Gentle Grip', Stream "Compromised"

NYC no wave/post punk/alt band Public Practice have announced the release of their debut album 'Gentle Grip'.

According to the press, with gentle grip public practice reanimate the spirit of late ‘70s new york with their playfully angular yet thoughtful brand of no wave-meets-funk and dark disco. It will be out on May 15 via Wharf Cat Records. Pre-order your copy here.

Magnetic singer and lyricist Sam York and guitarist and principal sonic architect Vince McClelland (who previously played together as members of the meteoric yet short-lived NYC post-punk outfit wall) come to the table with an anarchic perspective that aims to eradicate creative barriers by challenging the very idea of what a song can be. Paradoxically, drew citron, on bass/vocals/synth, and drummer/producer Scott Rosenthal (both previously of Brooklyn indie-pop favorites Beverly) are uncannily adept at working within the framework of classic pop structures. But instead of clashing, these contrasting styles challenge and complement one another, resulting in an album full of spiraling tensions and unexpected turns.

Lyrically, York explores the complexities and contradictions of modern life overtop dance-inducing rhythms and choruses that disarmingly open up the doors to self-reflection.

Of the new single, York says “’Compromised’ deals with the moral gymnastics that many of us struggle with daily just to be a human in this world. How do we balance our desire for material pleasures with our need to be seen as moral and good? What’s more important, the shoe or where it came from? How it was made or how it looks? I am no shining example and I struggle with this constantly.”
