PREMIERE: Dive into Pipsy’s brilliantly energetic new album Users

Since releasing his debut single Why Can’t I Get What I Want, For Once last year, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Pipsy has developed a unique brand of jangly beach-rock that’ll nest itself nicely in your mind.

The alias of Melbourne-based producer and musician Paul Pouwels-Trumpour, Pipsy’s music is seriously addictive… once you drop the needle on his new album Users, you’ll never want it to end.

Exploding with jangly and infectious indie-rock hooks, Pipsy’s brilliant new album Users will nest itself nicely into your mind.

The new album is brimming with infectious, surfy guitar-pop hooks that’ll brighten any room you find yourself in.

In a mere eight tracks, the artist manages to craft an album that rewards multiple listens, as it traverses joyfully through textured, well thought-out, indie-rock.

The title Users came from some motivational tape or something stupid I listened to that talked about people in your life that take and never give,” Pipsy says of the album.

Most of the songs articulate different problems related to that idea in my life.”

Whatever (If It’s Going To Come To This) is the albums energetic opener, laying the groundwork for an album that’ll have you wanting to jump out of your seat by its conclusion.

Clocking in at less that two minutes, Scared To Go Outside is one of the albums more frantic tracks – it emerges from nowhere and disappears before you really get a chance to comprehend what’s happened.

Though by the time the album’s slow-burning closer Geek reaches its end, you’ll be well aware of the impression Users has made on your brain.

Do yourself a favour and listen to the album above.
