Proper are a London guitar band who formed with the intent to provide an updated version of guitar based power-pop, with 3- minutes fast paced tunes geared on melodic structures which are easy to recognize and stick in the listeners’ heads, but for the right reasons…The songs, as well as the album’s cover carry a message highlighted by the album’s title: “To the point”: like Proper’s straightforward music, a statement which goes against self indulgence, but also a perspective on life in general. Often in life things are not as straightforward as they seem and therefore we have to deal with a “maze” of situations in order to reach the “point”. The front cover design is a respectful nod to the new wave bands of the past which contributed to “that 1979 guitar sound” which Proper intend to revisit in a contemporary key. It’s also an homage to an era when the whole packaging of an album was a combined artistic effort, the music, the artwork and the photography.
