Today, the boisterous Baltimore-based psychedelic funk quartet Pigeons Playing Ping Pong released their latest single, “Move Like That.” The tune is the band’s third release from their sixth studio album, ‘Perspective,’ available April 8th, 2022. A reimagined take on PPPP’s classic, funked-up sound, “Move Like That” beckons listeners to the dance floor, blending bright and melodic guitar riffs with a thumping rhythm section. The slinky, liquid groove features the percussive mastery of Jason Hann (The String Cheese Incident), who previously appeared with the band at North Beach Music Festival in Miami.
“Since the live music industry had shut down while we were recording 'Perspective,' we were granted a rare opportunity to collaborate with some seriously awesome musicians who would’ve otherwise been busy touring. Enter longtime friend and badass percussionist Jason Hann of The String Cheese Incident,” guitarist and lead vocalist “Scrambled Greg” Ormont said of the collaboration. “Jason added a whole new dimension and texture to "Move Like That," which is about two people seeing each other from across the room and catching fire. The seduction grabs hold and never lets go. There’s nothing left to do but let the sparks fly.”
“Move Like That” is the third single from ‘Perspective’ to include a guest artist. “Indiglo,” released in October, featured keyboard work from California multi-instrumentalist Zach Gill of ALO. Nashville funk collective Here Come The Mummies contributed a zesty horn section to the recently debuted single “Elephante,” accompanied by a cheeky medieval-themed video.
PPPP has a jam-packed schedule this Spring and Summer in support of their upcoming studio album ‘Perspective,’ with more than thirty shows scheduled nationwide. Touring resumes this Thursday, March 3rd in Houston, TX with support from Karina Rykman. Tickets for all shows are on sale now through the band’s website.
