After around two years of fans waiting, PVRIS are back with their new EP Hallucinations.
The EP was released on Friday 25th October and came with promises of a new album. The trio – Lynn Gunn, Alex Babinski and Brain McDonald – delivered their five track EP which explores more EDM and pop sounds than ever before whilst keeping elements which the band are known for. As PVRIS keeps expanding and evolving their sound this new EP delivers rocking, whimsical tracks, perfect for fans new and old.
The second single released from the EP, ‘Hallucinations’, acts as a perfect entry into this new era for PVRIS, with synth-filled gritty sounds and a catchy chorus. The song both expands on the rock elements the band has previously explored in addition to pop tones they do very well. Lynn discusses in interviews how this song was left in the back burner until JT (a producer who helped with the entire EP) picked it up and convinced her that they could transform it into something amazing - and that’s just what they did.
Unlike previous works, ‘Nightmare’ is filled with pop hooks and the lyrics lean on the cheekier side. That’s what makes it so fun. ‘Nightmare’ shows the development of PVRIS’ sound and where they could head next. Whilst still keeping signature dark undertones, ‘Nightmare’ has a bright and fun production and the combination of these elements created an extremely catchy song that would make anyone move.
