Zervas & Pepper – Abstract Heart & Tour Dates

Welsh duo Paul Zervas & Kathryn Pepper’s third album Abstract Heart is set for release on April 20th and either side of that they’ll be playing a series of dates in the UK to promote the album which follows their excellent 2013 release Lifebringer featured on Beat Surrender.

Musically Abstract Heart mines the same influences as Lifebringer, leaning heavily 70’s SoCal though the songs and sentiment are somewhat removed from the previous albums themes and the sunshine mood is dappled and shadowed

“Our last record was written as an escape from the situations we were dealing with at the time. But there is only so long you can suppress reality,” explains Pepper. And indeed by the time their latest offering Abstract Heart was written the material explored such themes as mortality and spirituality, depression and disillusion, even fears for the earth’s future. The songs just poured out, some songs were slightly dark, others blissed-out, but most of them were very close to home. It was a cathartic process”
