Pleasure House announce ‘Calm’ single release

Pleasure HousePleasure House have announced the release of their new single’ Calm’.

The track is the first single taken from their forthcoming ‘Sentient’ EP, due for release on May 26th.

Speaking of their new single, frontman Alex Heffernan explained: “I’d been feeling increasingly disaffected, like many others’ guilty of scrolling through torrents of hateful rhetoric and petty politics that add to the fragile disparity within our society, creating a war amongst ourselves. I wrote Calm as a protest song against this. It’s what I feel myself screaming at my screen, constantly exposed to a carefully calculated war on peace, feeling angry and afraid and helpless all at the same time. I wanted to write a song with a message of hope. A message of positivity and resistance that would resonate with everyone who feels disaffected too, because it feels like there’s conscious change in the air, and we should never allow fear to forget who our real enemy is.”

Produced by Bruce Rintoul (Twin Atlantic, Fatherson, Vukovi), Pleasure House’s Calm is released on 7th April.

The new single comes ahead of the band’s performance at Handmade Festival in Leicester and their headline UK tour.
