Sydney experimental-electronic-rock trio PVT (formerly Pivot) have released a new track titled Nightfall, taken from Homosapien, which is their upcoming fourth album and follow-up to 2010’s Church With No Magic. No firm date has been set for the new album yet, but it appears that it will be released next year through the band’s own Felte label.
The band revealed another track early last month, which will also appear on the album, titled Shiver, along with some world tour dates that also include a run of shows in Australia supporting Gotye. These will be their first shows here since playing at the Sydney Opera House on the recent Vivid LIVE 2012 lineup, as well as doing a one-off Melbourne gig.
PVT rose to acclaim upon the release of their debut Make Me Love You and the signature track Montecore. Since then, the band have evolved their hybrid of largely instrumental electronica and rock to dabble with vocals across their last 2 albums. This new track continues the trend, making extensive use of Richard Pike’s vocals alongside a subtle electronic groove (and accompanied by a video of a naked woman cavorting in a see-through raincoat in slow motion).
