Perpacity originally emerged as a collaboration between Ian Harling, based in the UK and Martin Nyrup, who lives in Denmark. Their 2015 debut album The Sinner Inclination was followed up by several well-received singles, including the silky beats of ‘Obscene’, the muscular ‘Rule the Day’ and a suitably darkwave take on Depeche Mode’s ‘The Things You Said’. Conflagration marks their fourth studio album release, which arrived via ScentAir Records this year.

Prior to coming together as Perpacity, the pair had already chalked up many years of writing and composing music separately. Nyrup originally began writing music for computer games in the 1980s, while Harling had experience playing in live bands for many years. Intriguingly, their initial collaborative work wasn’t music-oriented at all. Instead, the duo turned their talents to writing, with the subject of choice being mentalism – the psychological manipulation and hypnosis techniques that the likes of Derren Brown and David Blaine employ. In fact it wasn’t until eight years working together as authors that Harling offered to sing on one of Nyrup’s compositions, which led to the formation of Perpacity.

Perpacity members are Ian Harling and Martin Nyrup residing in the UK and in Denmark respectively. Each has over 20+ years of musical experience, ranging from writing music and live performance to studio work and music production. Perpacity creates strong melodic songs and melodies, characterized by their unique dark and moving electronic soundscapes.
