A few months ago, Peter Michael Perceval of Day Joy shared this song with me and strictly demanded (Well.. not that strict. More like politely asked) that I don’t share it with anyone. Well, I’ve done as I’ve been told, and just patiently waited for the official release of “Purple”. The single’s release has finally come.
“Purple” is such a beautiful track. Gently nestled somewhere between a sorrowful march and a lullaby, the song takes its time to grab hold of your emotions. The delicate percussion sets the mood, while the keys of a piano hide behind the rise and fall of strings. All of the instruments combined set the perfect backdrop for the lyrics’ story to be heard.
