ELVIS PERKINS - SINGLE REVIEW

Elvis Perkins - I Came For Fire (MIR) 
Elvis Perkins - I Came For Fire

Release Date: Out Now

It's a bit like being called Pele and having a kicking about in the park if you're named Elvis and decide to take a bash at being a musician. The pressure must be immense but if you can shoulder it then you might just be able to have something of a career, like Elvis Perkins who is in the middle of an extensive world tour. This new single from the hard working musician, 'I Came For Fire', is a muted and shuffling piece of Jazz influenced indie-folk that could have been recorded at any time over the last 100 years such is the wonderfully lo-fi quality of the recording. There is an early morning, creeping sun rise quality to this tune but not with the optimism you might expect at day break, more the feeling that this is the last sunrise you will ever witness as you head in to battle or to the gallows to meet your maker. I would recommend checking out Elvis Perkins at a live show but make sure you order a whisky or a large glass of red, this is music to sip to.
