Larry Pink The Human share brand new track 'Purpose Built'


Larry The Pink Human, the new side project of Slaves guitarist Laurie Vincent and producer Jolyon Thomas, have shared their latest effort ‘Purpose Built’.

This is the third track to be released from the exciting duo who previously shared the magnificent ‘Love You, Bye’ and ‘Might Delete Later‘ which has seen Vincent show off his more delicate side which is not always on show with Slaves.

This is what they had to say on their latest release: “‘Purpose Built’ is a song about losing yourself in and with another person in the perpetual moment. Occupying that space however romantic or mundane. Written in the deepest contentment a song about finding someone who is your home. The world becoming perfect poetry.”

The video saw the band head down to Dover and link up with director George Cory. “We wanted to reflect the imagery that surrounds us, the calm and beauty of the Kent coast is where we spend a lot of our time when we’re together,” the band say.

They continued: “George creates these Félix Valloton inspired photographs and we felt if they had some movement with video they’d really encapsulate the feel of the song and our surroundings. Also with lockdown in full swing the emptiness really felt cinematic and eerily stunning. Margate artist Rory Strudwick then tied it all together with a hand-screen-printed single artwork. It’s a colour study that Rory made, but to us it feels like a sunset, the sea, the sky. It’s awesome!”
