In 2017 Piperlain released the concept album ‘Mother Mourned’, which recounts the personal and emotional journey of two people growing up with and caring for mothers with serious illnesses.
Formed by singer/songwriters Benjamin Knight and Rebecca Voorn-Knight. Piperlain made the finals of the B&T Madweek Battle of the Bands where they received commendation from Sony on live performance and songwriting talent.
With Piperlain’s godlike writing skills and singing, they hit the road again with a new Ep titled ‘Shine On You’, although the Ep contains only 4 songs, Shine On You leaves with surreal emotions bursting out like a wildfire.
“The EP theme is being “lost and found”. experiencing loss of relationships and disillusionment from the pressures of social media, as well as lost during the Covid-19 pandemic.
‘I Feel the Sun’, is filled with positivity and combines acoustic beach vibes and folk elements with dreamy rock pop influences. It was inspired by coming out of the Covid-19 lockdown, when people could move around freely again, coming out of the height of the Covid-19 lockdown, finding inspiration again and being able to shine.
‘Shine on You’ and ‘I Don’t Miss You’ are about feeling loss, through a lost relationship and lost by the pressures of society. Feeling despondent about social media imagery that portrays a perfect life and body as well as disillusionment during the Covid-19 pandemic.
‘Bloom’ was inspired by people moving away from the city to rural areas following lockdown, rediscovering something special in nature as well as perhaps something forgotten in themselves, taking a chance and starting a new life. With its rhythmic percussive elements embraced by elegant piano, lofty honest vocals and themes of finding hope in a new place. Inspired by nature, as well as human nature.
The Piperlain sound has been compared to a contemporary version of The Cranberries and The Corrs with similarities to Sarah Blasko and Josh Pyke.
