Sticky Pearls are a Teesside duo walking on the dark side, Graeme Wilkinson (also from the mighty Golden Age of Nothing) provides the musical ministrations and inspirations, while spoken word performer Sarah Parilla adds the poetic licence to chill and distil mood, ambience and warped and wefted dream states into haunting songs.

Recent single Limbo is mystical, fragile and ethereal, tattooed by a caustic acid guitar. We are immersed in the deep swim with the magical psychedelic Angel Fish; there is despair and desperation in Germs and unknown pleasures and treasures from Unspoken Beauties. The ebbing, sonorous, undertow of The Cure, Siouxsie Sioux, Cocteau Twins and Joy Division lap around these Sticky Pearls, but there are real gems to be prized and devoured. Dig in.
