**EXCLUSIVE**In an age of fleeting success and temporary notions, Chris Pureka is an artist of substance, armed with an eye for detail and an emotional intelligence that can switch from withering to compelling with a subtle inflection. Her third studio album, How I Learned To See In the Dark, adds bold new elements to the base she has built over her six-year career.
How I Learned to See in the Dark marks a new stage in Pureka’s musical evolution, aided by her choice of co-producer and longtime friend, Merrill Garbus (of tUnE-YaRds). Standout track, Landlocked, showcases Pureka’s technical prowess with the finger-picking style that won her so many accolades on Dryland while Broken Clock is the rhythm driven, heavy hitter bound to be on your next break up mix. Wrecking Ball mixes quirkiness with percussive twangs...and is available as a free download a short scroll down.
Pureka brings her show to Music Hall of Williamsburg on April 12, and I've got a pair of tickets to give away. Read on for details.
