Pearls are fine purveyors of glam rock, where sugar meets the grit. They are ex lovers Ryan Caesar & Ellice Blakeney and newly joined, long-term friend, James Payne. Fusing tightly constructed rock with dance sophistication and an unnerving grasp of pop, ‘Superstar’ marks the coming of Pearls’ sophomore album, due early 2017, the follow-up to their critically acclaimed debut album Pretend You’re Mine.

Having been praised for their “twisted disco anchors [and] perfect melodic composition” by Beat, and touted “a sultry, slinky trip that’s equal parts Suicide, Goldfrapp, and David Bowie…[an] underground phenomenon,” by Tone Deaf, Pearls are ready to make a more than welcome return.
