Jima, the lead vocalist for the group describes the group "as a bar band who want their audiences to drink, have fun and generally have a good time." Sounds good to me...where do I sign up? But seriously, their music is a blend of Brit-pop sounds from the present (i.e. Richard Ashcroft and the Verve) along with riffs that could also comfortably place the songs in the 60's. And somehow, The Purrs manage to bring a California surf sound (i.e Dick Dale) into the mix as well! As an aside, all of the tracks on the album clock in at over four and a half minutes (pretty amazing considering the long track is almost a lost art in modern music), yet none of them drone on and on leaving you reaching for the next track button.
