The Reason For My Love is the new EP from my group P.E. (along with Bob Jones of Eaters and former members of Pill Veronica Torres, Ben Jaffe, and Jon Campolo). Featuring three new songs (including the lead single title track) and two remixes (one by Xiu Xiu, the other by us), this collection is inspired by classic 12″ EPs and is designed for the dancefloor. Bill Pearis from Brooklyn Vegan reviewed the EP in this week’s Indie Basement column, saying “the three new songs here are the band’s most song-like creations yet. And best. While still experimental, there is a pop backbone to all three, not to mention an overt danceability.” The Reason For My Love is out now via Wharf Cat Records.
P.E. – my psychedelic industrial pop group with members of Pill and Eaters – is back with the new single “The Reason For My Love.” Brooklyn Vegan premiered the track, with Stereogum and Recommended Listen also featuring the new song, “an altered zone of sax pop and asymmetrical synth lines grooving their way around Veronica Torres’ cool faith in the greatest emotion.” It’s the title track from our upcoming EP of the same name, which features two other new tracks and two remixes – one by Xiu Xiu and another by the band. We spent much of 2020 generating new song ideas, and convened at Studio Windows earlier this year to pull everything together. I love this song – it’s one of my favorites P.E. has ever done – and the EP is a dance-floor-ready summer jammer. You can stream the single below, and pre-order The Reason For My Love EP now (available Sept 3 via Wharf Cat Records).
