PYYRAMIDS' full-length debut, Brightest Darkest Day, is out today on indie label Paracadute. Fans can check it out now on AOL Spinner.com, which is streaming the album all week long here.
The band is Timothy Nordwind from indie rock band OK Go and Drea Smith of the electro-pop outfit He Say/She Say - will kick off a month-long tour tomorrow, April 10, at The Mercury Lounge in New York City. The run will include shows in Paris and London and a string of West Coast dates that includes a hometown gig at The Satellite in Los Angeles on May 2.
"Paper Doll" was lensed by Ericka Clevenger, who directed the videos for two songs from PYYRAMIDS' 2012 EP, Human Beings.
Introduced by a mutual friend via email, Nordwind and Smith initially bonded over an affinity for first-wave British post-punk and 80's Manchester bands. They began creating songs together, working from their respective homes, and finally met when a tour brought Tim to Chicago. Drea came out to Los Angeles in early 2012 for their first proper recording session and moved to the West Coast before the year was over.
