"Central Track"

"These demos from Pleasure Crisis, one of Dallas’ few female-fronted synthwave acts, are pretty killer. Like any good material from the genre, it brings to mind the better days of VHS and illicits dancing. Can’t ask for much more than that." - Cory Graves, www.centraltrack.com - Cory Graves


"NEW MUSIC: PLEASURE CRISIS – DRIVE"

“With Drive, Brandi Paige (vocals, guitar), Brian Johnson (synths, drums) and Cameron Brand (bass, synths) offer up a track and indeed an LP that interpret and update synthwave, vaporwave and more, demonstrating that something new and exciting can be done with genres that can often fall in to the trap of recreating sounds rather than appreciating them.” - Mark Buckley, www.analoguetrash.com - Mark Buckley

Bio

Forward in sound and lyrical content, Dallas synthwave trio Pleasure Crisis are currently bringing their first round of live shows to the stage. Carefully crafted songs have culminated in a setlist that is both polished and perfected. Sultry, powerful feminine vocals glide over retrofuturistic synth sounds, driving guitars, pulsing basslines, and dynamic drums detailing both the honesty and vulnerability in love - love lost, love won, and love unrequited.

Initiated by bassist Cameron Brand, the idea of Pleasure Crisis was conceived in Summer 2015 after the demise of his band AT NIGHT. Having performed in numerous other bands of wide ranging styles - Apparatus, Blackheart Society - and opening for several national acts - VHS or BETA, Black Angels - Cameron decided to veer into a different musical direction. Seeking a female vocalist for a refreshing change of pace, Cameron reached out to singer/guitarist Brandi Paige. Brandi herself had garnered much attention over the years as guitarist and vocalist for the Opus Flux as well as touring nationally with other bands. Cameron and Brandi soon recruited the controlled, precise skills of former AT NIGHT drummer Brian Johnson to complete the lineup.

Together, Cameron, Brandi, and Brian draw on influences as retro as Missing Persons and Berlin and as modern as The Sounds and Chrvrches to produce a sound that could best be described as fast forwarding a Miami Vice soundtrack to the future. It’s each member's deep roots in playing live, however, that add an additional layer to their live set, making them easily accessible to rock and electronic fans alike.

Available at all live shows and online will be digital versions of Pleasure Crisis’ EP currently being recorded in anticipation of their first full length debut.
