Oxford trio Pearl Driver, aka Mat Sage on vocals and guitar, Josh Rigal on bass and drummer Joel Bassuk have changed things up from their days as Art Theefe, and have just released their new single You Can Bring Your Darkness, and we’re delighted to be able to premiere the video right here on Backseat Mafia today.
Of the song, the band say “This song explores what it might be like when we dare to bring all of ourselves in relationship: to lovers, to friends or to family. All of the shadowy, dark and ‘unlovable’ parts. To be fully wanted and welcome as we truly are.It is released on the Spring Equinox, just in time to bring our darkness into the light.”
Soaked in sun and draped in this hazy hue, You Can Bring You’re Darkness is this beautiful slice of pop music that skirts both indie and elements of soul, but manages to twang your heartstrings with these harmonies and brushes of guitar, and a chorus that sings straight to you.
