PureVolume premiered A Great Big Pile of Leaves’ new take on their song “Pet Mouse” today…featuring Justin Pierre of Motion City Soundtrack!
Pierre’s higher-pitched, yet soft vocals contrast wonderfully with Peter Weiland’s deeper, yet equally distinguishable voice, adding a very special element to the song. The track is well done, straightforward indie rock in a nutshell, with a few hand claps thrown in the middle. According to drummer Tyler Soucy, the collaboration was very last minute, but you’d never know by listening to the song:
We emailed him the part the day before and he was there for like 20-minutes. It was cool and we feel really fortunate that it was such a fun and enjoyable experience.
Enjoyable for all of us! A Great Big Pile of Leaves will release their sophomore album, You’re Always On My Mind, on July 2. They also debuted the album art:
