New Zealand dreamscape artists Purple Pilgrims have announced their sophomore record Perfumed Earth, set for release on August 9th on Flying Nun Records, their recorded debut with the label.

Sisters Valentine and Clementine Nixon have also reveal the first track off the album, titled ‘Two Worlds Apart’. Directed by W.A.M. Bleakly, the accompanying visuals sees the enchanting pair navigate physical distance, while carrying a strong spiritual tie that ultimately reunites them in harmonious ceremony.

Celestial synthesizers support the Nixon sister’s ethereal melodies and hollow, cutting electric guitars in this mesmeric track.

To create Perfumed Earth, Valentine and Clementine retreated to the wooden sanctuary hidden deep in the wilds of Tapu where their 2016 debut Eternal Delight came together.

The 9 track record features support from Gary War (bass and synth from various motel rooms in the USA), Jimmy Mac (lush live drums), Joshua Kennedy (additional guitar jangle and fuzz), veteran improvisational experimentalist Jeff Henderson (saxophone on ‘Delphiniums In Harmony / Two Worlds Away’) and a special guest appearance from six-string expressionist Roy Montgomery on ‘Ruinous Splendour’. The album was mixed by acclaimed engineer Thomas Healy (Tiny Ruins).

Perfumed Earth is out August 9th on Flying Nun Records.
