South London trio PVA have announced their debut album, ‘BLUSH’.
Set for release on 14th October via Ninja Tune, the news comes alongside new single ‘Hero Man’, which will appear on the album alongside previous offering ‘Untethered’.
Vocalist Ella Harris explains the new track is “a relationship with yourself that is restrictive and closed off.” Harris adds that it’s also “an expression of this frustrated anger at masculinity and a resentment at being unable to free yourself from that and explore the world.”
On the album, drummer Louis Satchell says: “We wanted to surprise people and do something more than just get across how we sound at a gig. It’s quite an anxious record sometimes that is relating to mental health issues and carries within it the anxiety of making an album. It’s been a rocky ride but we always pick ourselves up.”
“This album is definitely exploring who we are as people,” adds Josh Baxter. “We’ve all had this personal growth and the album is about us allowing us to be ourselves more and being comfortable with that.”
The tracklisting for ‘BLUSH” reads:
- Hero Man
- Comfort Eating
- The Individual
- Bad Dad
- Seven (feat. Tony Njoku)
