artificialpleasure1London-based trio Artificial Pleasure – Vocalist/guitarist Phil McDonnell + Dom Brennan (synths) and Lee Jordan (drums) – follow up their first offering ‘Bolt From The Blue’, with ‘I’ll Make It Worth Your Time’, which drops on December 2nd.

McDonnell describes their Bowie-esque, sharp future funk bliss, touched by early Heaven 17 vibes, so: “The song is about the desire to sometimes lose control, to lose yourself, to escape from whatever is going on,” says McDonnell. “It’s about not caring, at least for a short period of time, and letting go. I get the urge to go wild but I’m often too self-conscious.”

Catch them live on Monday 28th November in London’s Electrowerkz, free show supporting Lea Porcelain. Get your tickets here.
