Perfect Pussy are one of the boldest and most intriguing projects to surface in recent years, garnering widespread critical acclaim following a self-released four song cassette-only EP, titled I have lost all desire for feeling. Veiled beneath layers of exquisitely abrasive noise, frontwoman Meredith Graves’ lyrics are disarming, brutally honest and poetic, possessing a feverish intensity that can only be matched by her electric stage presence. The band’s debut full length and first release on Captured Tracks, Say Yes to Love, is a frenetic and fast-paced juggernaut, capturing a pivotal young band just as it’s ready to explode.

Hailing from Syracuse, New York, the band is comprised of members from the local punk, noise and hardcore community. Graves (26, ex-Shoppers) and bassist Greg Ambler (30, numerous grind/hardcore bands) founded the band and were joined by Ray McAndrew (guitarist, 21) and Garrett Koloski (drummer, 23), both of whom cite The VSS, Nick Cave and Sonic Youth as primary influences.  Shaun Sutkus, the group’s in-house engineer/producer, rounds out the five-piece and names influences ranging from Stockhausen to “science” and Glenn Gould, a combination that explains the band’s consistent keyboards and layered noise textures. Mix this with Graves’ magnetic stage charisma and unique approach to singing (her background is rooted in both theater and opera) filtered through an equal love of Kate Bush and Cro-Mags, and you’ll see how they arrived at such a beautifully menacing sound.
