Pva - TonerRegular price $35.50
Genre hopping London three-piece PVA arrive at this juncture as one of the most dynamic and exciting new bands in the country, intuitively blending club music and a smart pop sensibility with the more organic elements and instrumentation of new wave and post-punk.
PVA initially formed in the aftermath of a house party in 2018 and have since earned a fearsome reputation as one of the capital’s premier live outfits, garnering hardcore support before even setting inside a studio.
A trio of musical polymaths, Ella Harris and Josh Baxter share lead vocals and flit between guitars, synths and production, whilst Louis Satchell handles live drums, percussion and SPD.
The trio have just signed to the Ninja Tune imprint Big Dada which has released seminal albums by Roots Manuva, Sampa the Great, Kate Tempest and Young Fathers. “We are really over the moon to be joining the Ninja family,” Ella, Josh and Louis said of their decision. “The music that has come from the label is incredible and includes some of our favourite releases. We’re very happy to now be a part of it.”
Toner was produced by Speedy Wunderground’s Dan Carey– whose recent work includes launch pad singles for Black Country, New Road, black midi and Squid. The EP contains three remixes from Mura Masa, who was an early fan, Lynks and Daniel Fox of Dublin’s Girl Band.
Toner is only PVA’s first EP, but it teems with excitement. Never for a minute does it sit still, skipping between ideas with instinctive ease, bringing to light a broad palate of sounds and influences.
