So round once again for Puressence, still looking for that breakthrough after all these years, and sadly unlikely to see it happen with their latest single Walking Dead. By now you'd think they would have realised that having a singer who sounds like their mouth is stuffed full of cotton wool is never going to do much for their chances.
Walking Dead is passable as sub-Stone Roses nonsense goes, but it's nothing that's going to see the kids throwing away their Eminem CDs.
On Moss Side Lonely the band bravely attempt to update their sound. Unfortunately for them this means trying to sound like it's 1994 and they're Portishead. But it isn't and they aren't, and the singer still sounds like he's singing behind a woollen scarf. Oh well, maybe next time... but then again, probably not.
