PVRIS - Hallucinations EP
Published: 10:00 am, October 24, 2019Words: Stephen Ackroyd.

In 2019, there’s no room left for boundaries. Anyone sticking firmly to their lane is missing the point. A culture based on influence from all angles isn’t going to stay so staunchly tribal for long. 

That’s something PVRIS know better than most. With their third album on the way, their appetiser ‘Hallucinations’ EP sees the trio jump off the high board into a pool filled to the brim with technicolour pop. When mixed with their own shadowy hues, we’re left with something both seek and dynamic, but also capable of blasting through the noise. 

With a title-track that stomps to its own beat, the strutting ‘Nightmare’ and sweeping ‘Old Wounds’, across five songs PVRIS prove they’re every bit a band for right now. In 2020, expect them to make bigger waves than ever before.
