Pure Love, who also feature former Hope Conspiracy guitarist Jim Carroll in their line-up, are set to release their debut record later this summer and have relocated to Brooklyn to complete work on the album.
Speaking to NME last month, Carter said of the band’s ambitions for their debut album: “Rock might not have been as popular in recent years, but that’s definitely going to change because we haven’t released our album yet. I want to make music that’s timeless and classic.”
The duo also said that they were happy to be considered a pop band, with Carter responding to a question whether Pure Love could be considered a pop band by saying: “Fuck yeah, so were Pink Floyd, Thin Lizzy, AC/DC, Queen, Abba. Essentially they’re all rock bands, but they’ve got massive pop sensibilities. They’re popular bands, and that’s what it means. I want to be a popular band.”
The band will play a one-off gig at London’s Scala venue on May 29. Read our review of ‘Bury My Bones’ here
