EP review: Post Coal Prom Queen – PCPQ

Post Coal Prom Queen’s debut EP as a duo, PCPQ, sees them distil their sound down to its imaginative and accessibly experimental core. If that makes it sound heavy, it’s not. These are delicately realised pop songs with tonnes of character and stories ready to tell.

In the closing track ‘Faraday Cage For One’, Lily’s vocal delivery carries a similar tone and weight to that of Natasha Khan (Bat for Lashes). It’s an EP full of crisp and clicky beats, thoughtfully delivered synths that err equally on melancholy and whimsy, and delicately delivered vocals that whisper future dreams.

PCPQ is out now via the band’s Bandcamp
