JOANA & THE WOLF – Purple Nights (7″ Single)

Purple Nights CoverRegal REGALSC001: 21st August 2006
1. Purple Nights
“Each word I say now’s, a little snake babe, I’m slowly growing in your head, now call me prophet, your little prophet, a comfort for the plastic age”
2. November
“It is bad, whatever I do, it is wrong, whatever I say”

Joana & The Wolf are Joana Glaza and Ali Milne and they’re like a more theatrical version of PJ Harvey.  This is the first 7″ in a singles-club series from Regal records.

On ‘Purple Nights’ the vocals alternate between a low snarl and a piercing falsetto, which might be too much for some people. Joana’s words are backed by a stomping beat and sexy Guitars. ‘November’ has a slightly more bouncy Pop feel and a Siouxsie Sioux influence on the vocals. There is a wonderful part in the middle where it all slows done, then with a shriek they tear back into the song.
