Tame with Purs - An Interview

Seguindo a máxima do TBTCI, "Uma Viagem ao Submundo dos Bons Sons", aterrizamos em Londres para acompanhar os primeiros passos e o nascimento do Purs.

Tame, primeira música deles disponibilizada ao mundo, é um doce shoegaze remetendo ao Lush e outras clássica da Scene.

Deliciosamente sexy e viciante, Tame é um ótimo aperitivo e cartão de visitas para o que o Purs poderá nos ofertar em um futuro não muito distante.

Para acompanhar de olhos e ouvidos atentos, que venha muito mais.
