Stream Momentary Actuality via Apple Music | TIDAL | Deezer | Bandcamp and Spotify
Pre-order Blossom here.
Speaking on Momentary Actuality, PUPIL SLICER comments: "Momentary Actuality serves as the starting point for the story of Blossom and
also encapsulates a musical mission statement for the album, the song encompasses a broad range of styles that are found on the rest of Blossom.
"This song really showcases our progression as musicians on a technical as well as compositional level, with a lot of care taken to craft a very satisfying structure to the over-the-top riffs and breakdowns we've come to be known for."
Drawing influence from a myriad of genre classics across books, movies and videogames, PUPIL SLICER's primary lyricist, Kate Davies has crafted a story that conveys personal experiences via an other-worldly narrative. In the wake of a profane signal of alien origin, the album opens with the protagonist losing touch with reality beneath a starry night sky. What follows is a kaleidoscopic voyage through another plane of existence where all is not as it first seems; trapped in a loop of destruction that must be imparted upon others. The tale ultimately comes to a point with serenity
achieved in the closing minutes, planting the seeds of hope for an opportunity to start anew.
Whilst 2020's Mirrors was lyrically a very raw, biographical album, on Blossom, Davies has deftly blended between their lived experiences and the tales that unfold throughout the ten tracks on the follow up. These stories are supported by the intensely intricate and skillful rhythmic backbone
provided by Josh Andrews on drums, Luke Fabian on bass and bursts of shredding leads from former live guitarist Frank Muir. Told through the prism of a fantastical fiction, the visceral delivery and cathartic energy is palpable as ever; intergalactic embellishments can’t destroy the umbilical link between what churns within and what is later spewed out.
