Thanks to Gorilla vs. Bear for this tasty tid-bit. Lo-Fi Pop duo Pearl Harbor have officially changed their name to Puro Instinct and have just released a new EP.
Changing band names seems to be a trend in Los Angeles these days. The Flying Tourbillon Orchestra=Walking Sleep. Afternoons=Shadow Shadow Shade. The Muslims=The Soft Pack. The Weather Underground=Red Cortez.
I quite liked the name Pearl Harbor so hopefully Puro Instinct grows on me.
Maybe this means I should change the name of this website?
The band will also be touring later this summer with Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti. You can also pick up a new digital EP direct from the band for only $5 on bandcamp. All the money goes straight to the band so be a dear and buy direct. The EP will be out on vinyl later this summer on Gloriette.
