Once you’ve listened to Purple Thread’s new single ‘Gimme More’, and you’ve had time to catch your breath, you’ll realise that you’re confused about what exactly it is you’ve just heard.
Was it an indie banger? A chart-worthy pop song? Maybe it was a garage rock anthem?
I suppose the answer is that it’s a bit of all of them. This track is relentless yet chirpy, it comes out of the blocks and hits you right in the face. The band believe that the energetic nature of ‘Gimme More’ makes it destined to be a favourite for live audiences, and I don’t think they’ll be disappointed.
Returning from their recent hiatus, this track is the mark of a new era for Purple Thread. They’ve taken time out to come back with more bite than ever.
You could argue that the chaotic, charging feel to ‘Gimme More’ makes it almost impossible to listen to again in close succession. It’s a lot to take in, and could make a listener feel drained. Perhaps this is exactly the reason that makes it the perfect live song, so you can put everything into the one listen and move on to the next song.
If you see the name Purple Thread on a gig poster near you then don’t waste the opportunity. You may leave the gig out of breath, but it’ll be worth it to get a sense of this song live.
‘Gimme More’ is a return with a bang for the band from Leeds, and I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot more from them in the near future.
