Single: Purseweb – butter knives

Purseweb, a Manchester-based artist, has been releasing music on Bandcamp since 2022. Their newest release, “butter knives”, came out on May 24, 2024. The track opens with a wistful and nostalgic sound, the gorgeous acoustic backing and riffs transporting me back in time to my childhood. Soon after the intro, Purseweb’s voice comes in, a soft, sweet, and wispy sound that holds me in the embrace of reminiscence. Then, the percussion enters, adding greater depth to the sound in an irresistible way – I’ve rewound the song multiple times just to hear the percussion entrance, and I’ve loved it every time. Purseweb’s “butter knives” reminds me of the tranquility of thunderstorms, of road trips taken as a child, and of bonfires and beers in my friends’ backyards. If I were you, I wouldn’t wait – “butter knives” is a must-listen.
