NEW COLLABORATION - RELEASED 7th DECEMBER 2018:

Hard on the heels of their latest album release ‘The order of Now’ in September, electronic duo 'Perpacity' take another musical turn with their latest single release, teaming up with vocalist / Radio DJ Neil Francis for a soaring ballad that wouldn't be out of place in a London musical.

Words are Faith and Water is a poignant, hopeful, track about trust and coming to terms with loneliness that, although as much orchestral as electro, still retains the quirky catchiness that the duo has been associated with on other releases. Neil's vocals are powerful and emotional throughout, creating a rich interplay with the music taking the sound of the band in new directions.

Martin Nyrup: "We knew of Neil's work in the music-scene and had obviously seen the London video, and I think he stuck in the back of our mind's for some time as someone we would like to work with. We'd written Words are Faith and Water last year, but knew that it would take a special kind of voice to do it the way that it was meant to be - and eventually realised that Neil was one of the few that would be able to pull it off.”

Ian Harling: “We try to avoid getting ourselves stuck in one genre or sound, so every new track is an exploration in terms of production, but we're very pleased with the way it's turned out. It's good for us to work with other people who can bring their own style and ideas to our tracks, it helps us grow musically.”

Neil Francis: "I was delighted when Perpacity asked if I'd like to add my vocals to a song they felt I could compliment, and so headed to the studio with my producer Day Clifford (aka Daysound) to experiment on finding the right voice for this rather wonderful composition.
I was no stranger to Perpacity's music and would often play them on my radio show, so was eager to do my best on this song.
It's been wonderful to collaborate with both Martin and Ian, throwing idea's back and forth over the internet and working with Day on the vocals and video, seeing it all come together has been a great experience.
I am immensely happy and proud with the finished product - both song and video - and I really hope you enjoy the joint efforts of Ian, Martin, Day, and myself."

’Words are Faith and Water’ is available for download at BANDCAMP from December 7th, 2018.
