Interview: PVT – Personal Evolution
PVT’s (formerly Pivot) brand-new studio album Homosapien has just been released. PVT have long been recognised for their experimentation but with Homosapien the Australian trio have harnessed their inventive qualities and channelled them into a more accessible album.
Comprised of Sydney brothers Richard and Laurence Pike and multi-instrumentalist Dave Miller, PVT have looked to make an album that was direct and intimate while exploring personal evolution.
Richard Pike’s voice is at the forefront of Homosapien‘s appeal. For this release, Pike stepped up to become a legitimate frontman and helped strengthen the human element of PVT’s sound with his distinctive vocals.
Previewing the album track by track across a variety of music blogs, PVT effectively demonstrated that each song takes on a life of its own. That said, Homosapien has a particular cohesion that takes the listener to exotic locations with a twist on the familiar.
