About Purple Pilgrims

Purple Pilgrims is the experimental dream pop project of Clementine and Valentine Adams, sisters who were raised in Hong Kong and New Zealand's South Island by a family with long-running musical roots: their great-grandfather, Davie Stewart, was recorded by Alan Lomax. In 2011, the Adams sisters returned to China after the Christchurch earthquake and began making music. Their self-titled debut single of ethereal, fuzzed-out folk arrived that year on PseudoArcana. The duo toured with artists including Ariel Pink and Gary War, with whom they shared a split album released by Upset the Rhythm in 2013. After signing to Not Not Fun, the Adams returned to New Zealand to make their first full-length. Recorded in a shed on the western side of the Coromandel Peninsula, 2016's Eternal Delight marked a more streamlined, cleanly recorded version of Purple Pilgrims' transporting sound. ~ Heather Phares
