Public Practice is reviving the spirit of late '70s New York with their intoxicating brand of no wave-tinged dark disco. The band came in hot with their punchy balance of punk, funk, and pop on the critically acclaimed Distance is a Mirror EP in 2018. The Brooklyn-based band (who Paste recently named as “one of the 15 New York City bands you need to know right now”) are excited to announce the forthcoming release of their debut album Gentle Grip on May 15 via Wharf Cat Records. Today Public Practice share the first taste of the album with the single “Compromised.” Of the track the band's Sam York says ''Compromised' deals with the moral gymnastics that many of us struggle with daily just to be a human in this world. How do we balance our desire for material pleasures with our need to be seen as moral and good? What's more important, the shoe or where it came from? How it was made or how it looks? I am no shining example and I struggle with this constantly.' The video for “Compromised” was directed by Josie Keefe and Jonny Campolo (Pill, P.E.) and they note, “Inspired by luscious lips, dazzling eyes and manicured hands of the past, we recreated layouts, postures, and makeup techniques from vintage cosmetic advertisements. The video splits the body into eyes, lips, and hands - bringing the artwork of Public Practice's music to life.”
