Perfect Pop Pulp – New Album ‘BEYOND THE PALE’ By JARV IS…

19 July 2020

Band: Jarv Is… 
A six-piece collective led by maestro Jarvis Cocker
Album: Beyond The Pale
Released: 17 Juy 2020
Info: Jarv Is… is the first original music from Cocker since his 2009 solo LP Further Complications.  Jarv Is… was conceived as a way of writing songs in collaboration
with an audience.  As the material they were playing was in a state of flux the band decided to record their live shows so that they could monitor how the songs were developing.

NME says: “The Britpop legend tackles modernity and isolation on this danceable
debut with his new band, sharing his elder statesman wit and wisdom… Beyond
The Pale’ is a cracking addition to the Cocker canon, bursting with that Pulp knack
for nerdy melodrama and primed for the dancefloor… Beyond The Pale’ feels live,
kinetic and present – as well as weirdly prescient.”
Full review here. Score: 4/5

Key phrase: “Pop music was supposed to be a flash in the pan,
but here we are 50 years later and it means something to us,
and it always will do. It’s incredibly important.”
Paul Weller
