Since forming in the din of a house party two years ago, PVA are the genre-hopping passion project of London musicians Ella Harris, Josh Baxter and Louis Satchell. The three piece traverse fistfuls of genres throughout their rapturous live sets, incorporating techno landscapes, Balearic euphoria, and industrial miasma within the same songs. The band’s unique energy combines with blocky synths, autotuned vocals and motorik drum loops to earmark the group as one of the capital’s foremost new bands. “Their music mutates and warps around an array of genres,” says Dominic Haley in a feature for Loud and Quiet: They’re both brutal, and dripping in underground cool, but accessible and totally danceable.”
Regularly headlining medium sized venues (Brixton Windmill and The Social among others) and winning over punters at festivals (Green Man, Knee Deep and Test Pressing Festival) alike, the three piece are a unique beast whose reputation and buzz to date is routed in the mania of their bustling live sets.
