Since their legal name change in 2010, Aussie band PVT (previously Pivot) have further embraced surrealism and continued experimentation, delivering them closer to the uttermost peak of self-discovery. New Spirit finds them expanding again, building an exhilarating soundscape from an abundance of simple compulsions piled on top of one another, reaching sky-high. It lends the record a rhythmic consistency, which – although as smooth as sandpaper – is where it gets its dense, voltaic texture. Listeners will be rewarded with a spiritual buzz like no other.
New Spirit is out February 17 via Create/Control.
