Implicating More Than One

Per Purpose doesn’t take long to find a groove on its debut EP. Very early on in “Pregnant Again”, the band dives in an ecstatic sprawl that borrows heavily from the early 90’s rock that the Brisbane trio was likely raised on. The six tracks on Implicating More Than One run the gamut of the cousins of ‘90’s rock, moving without any linear motion. Instead, a wash of angular guitar riffs and snotty choruses make Per Purpose sound like a band on the verge of sonic explosion.  Unfortunately, the band does sometimes merge into confusing territory, relying more on attitude than abilities, but those moments are rare, because Implicating More Than One encompasses more than Per Purpose’s indie rock influences or its scuzzy, punk contemporaries. It won’t be long now before that is fully realized.
