Powerful and moody, yet upbeat and optimistic, Another Perfect Crime was bred by Seattle’s rainy days and quirky artistic scene. Their interwoven vocal lines and aggressive tone draw comparisons to The Joy Formidable and Sunny Day Real Estate while their inventive writing and untraditional song structures recall Fugazi, Marnie Stern, and Wild Flag.
Allegorical lyrics that describe moments of humility, honesty, and pride give us a peek into the band’s intellectual curiosity and irreverent nature. After a quick listen, it is obvious that Another Perfect Crime builds their songs in collaboration. Layered vocals, jagged guitar, driving bass and dynamic drums; each instrument tells a story, and as a whole, the band writes a novel.
Another Perfect Crime’s ethic has been shaped by Portland’s Ladies Rock Camp, where the trio met. Another Perfect Crime is more than a few people playing music together. It’s a second home, an expressive outlet, and a way to connect to the community. Their creativity and DIY spirit extends beyond the stage, as evidenced by their hand crafted merchandise, which ranges from embroidered boxers to lip gloss mixed in home laboratories.
Another Perfect Crime formed in 2006. They released their EP, “Show Don’t Tell” in 2008, and their first full length, “Get Out!”, was released in 2009. They have played shows around Seattle since 2006, toured regionally in 2008, and took the West Coast by storm in Sept of 2010. They are currently in post-production for their new EP, set to be released in early 2012.
