hmv's Next Big Thing... #21 PVRIS
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you PVRIS and their own icy cool brand of rock...
Who Are They?
PVRIS (produced Paris, in the same way Chvrches is pronounced Churches) consist of singer Lynn Gunnulfsen, guitarist Alex Babinski and Brian McDonald on bass. Formed in Lowell, Massachusetts, they've been going since early 2012. After touring with just about everybody they could and a lengthy stint on the Warped Tour, they released their debut album White Noise earlier this year.
Who Do They Sound Like?
They're a mash up of driving anthemic rock and icy electro. Imagine Paramore, Rise Against, Linkin Park smashed together with the kind of electronics you find on Lykke Li and Robyn's finest moments.
Why Should I Be Excited?
They've an incredible live band and their debut is full of bangers. That'll do right?
Can I Hear Something?
