Puro Instinct are Los Angeles born-and-bred sisters Skylar and Piper Kaplan. Like their Mexican Summer labelmates Best Coast, Puro Instinct (previously known as Pearl Harbor) definitely ride chillwave, but they replace Best Coast's radio-ready pop with a hazier, lazier approach to writing ho-hum melodies--one might accuse them of chilling a little too hard. Their debut LP, Headbangers in Ecstasy, features chiming guitar riffs played by the 16-year-old Skylar and pretty-enough vocal melodies carried by Piper. It's pleasant indie rock, if a bit slow at times--but if you're aiming to chill, Puro Instinct should get you there. With John Maus and Geneva Jacuzzi.
