Brand new Ralph Pelleymounter shirt, available for pre-order now!

Release Date:

Downloads include choice of MP3, WAV, or FLAC

Recorded by rising production talent Gethin Pearson (Kele Okereke, JAWS, Orla Gartland) in ten long days during Britain’s hottest summer in decades, and named so “because it’s a good title for someone releasing a solo album so late in their career”, Dead Debutante’s Ball is a record that carries a similar sense of mirth and mischief throughout its fourteen songs.

‘Dead Debutante’s Ball’ talks about social anxieties and panic attacks, how not to deal with break-ups and feelings of powerlessness.  There is, it must never be forgotten, a song here called The History Of Line Dancing. There are two about lobsters. But there is also brave storytelling here. A deep well of emotion. Magic. It’s the clearest and most direct presentation of contemporary Britain’s most underrated songwriter to date.
