Pure Protein Shares Molly Urethane
Pure Protein has deep roots in the Mississippi music scene that gave us such acts as Dent May and Dead Gaze (among others), but M.W. Powell left the comforts of home to forge his own path out in California. On his latest single he steps into the territory where bedroom pop and dreaminess intertwine, though the melodies you’re hearing probably owe more to Powell’s fondness for 90s pop rock hits (it also reminds me of Denver Dalley’s Statistics project). The recording captures this intimacy you want from your favorite songwriters, though the chorus moments like “I’ll just pass out in the park” really dig their industrious pop claws into your skin. You’ll be able to get your hands on Winner Goes Home, the debut album from Pure Protein on May 8th.
