Purling Hiss breaks the typical mold of psych punk outfits use of heavy psychedelic influence and fuzzed-out electric guitar solos in their newest song, “Forcefield of Solitude.” The structurally loose guitar riffs are there, the same apathetic tone is delivered, but there’s an energy present you won’t hear on the band’s earlier tunes like “D.U.I” or “City Wide Special.”  The first single from their upcoming album, Weirdon, “Learning Slowly” brought a heavy pop sound to the band’s former lo-fi nature, and “Forcefield of Solitude” finds the band venturing further into the same vein of upbeat alt-rock. The song is currently streaming on Consequence of Sound here, and Purling Hiss plays World Cafe Live September 25th, just two days after the release of Weirdon on Drag City Records.
