After successfully transcending their heavy alt-rock beginnings to create the synth-pop masterpiece of ‘Use Me’, PVRIS have been riding high, and rightly so. After a wave of critical acclaim that has seen the band heralded as one of alt-pop’s finest acts, Lynn Gunn and Brian MacDonald are back in the spotlight, building perfectly on the momentum of their last album with the brilliant new single ‘Monster’.
A track that finds the band well and truly in their element, ‘Monster’ perfectly blends their intoxicating pop-inspired sound with an invigorating dose of RnB style that adds depth and plenty of enjoyment. While beautifully constructed, each chorus hits with an insane, kaleidoscopic beat that’s impossible not to love, building on the pop overtones and delivering time and time again. A wild and defiant track that is easily on par with some of the biggest mainstream releases of the year, ‘Monster’ is vibrant, invigorating, and absolutely undeniable.
Gunn previously described ‘Monster’ as “a song about reckoning with outside opinions and expectations put upon oneself. It can be easy to take on the weight of negative situations/opinions, this is about the struggle of releasing those inhibitions and internalizations and returning back to yourself.”
Alongside the new track, PVRIS have also revealed a brand-new video, with sees Lynn Gunn and a group of dancers performing in front of unnerving backdrops for a visual experience that’s both hypnotizing and eerie. Check it out below.
Building on the release, PVRIS will be embarking on a huge US tour, stopping at cities like Detroit, Chicago, New York, and San Francisco. Check out all the dates and get your tickets today on PVRIS’ website below.
