Pope Joan - The VPME

 Brighton art pop quartet Pope Joan returns with their new single The Celebration . There’s something of the brimstone and fire dark preacher man stylings of Nick Cave about the song, which is of course a very good thing. The single was produced by the band themselves, working alongside mastering engineer Mike Marsh (The Kills, Nick Cave, Hot Chip).
