Hiding away in the suburbs of Footscray and Geelong, creative prodigy Paris Rebel Richens has been quietly kicking huge goals in many different musical formats in the Victorian music scene. Since starting out musically in 2011, she has released two albums with new wave rockers Hierophants, and just recently released the debut, long-awaited full-length with her primary project, Parsnip!
Over the summer of 2018/2019, Paris buried herself in her bedroom to record this variety of extraordinary songs and sounds out of pure joy - and now it’s finished for all to hear! Written, performed and recorded entirely by Paris (besides the odd vocal and tambourine dub), “P.P Is... Peeping Piebald Past The Night!” is a great glimpse into the world of P.P. - honest and well-constructed songs touching on themes like animals, plants, seasons, words and rhymes.
“Hark the ppitter ppatter of ppastures and pplants!
PP will take you to infinite lands
Of sands and soot and foothills and stars
And pput all your pproblems in the ppit of the ppast
To ppeepp on beyond, ppeepping within
Tipptoe to love, there remaining
Fixed on the ppipp, fixed on the ppart
And pparcel of all, fixed on the heart
Whether you’re near, whether you’re far
Be here now wherever you are!”
“P.P Is... Peeping Piebald Past The Night!” will be here and available on cassette and all digital platforms through Anti Fade Records, from November 22nd, 2019.
supported by 26 fans who also own “P.P. Is... Peeping Piebald Past The Night!”
Is this one of the cutest post punk/ New Wave all girl bands on the planet? YES! Melbourne is brewing some great Muzak, thank heavens for Bandcamp, Radio in Australia has been obsolete for 40+ years. James .R. Dixon
