PVA share new single “Bad Dad” from new album “BLUSH” out 14th October via Ninja Tune. Biggest EU / UK headline tour to date to take place Oct / Nov 2022.

GRAMMY-nominated, South London trio PVA have shared a new single titled “Bad Dad”. The single follows the announcement of their highly anticipated debut album “BLUSH”, which is due out 14th October via Ninja Tune.

Arriving closely on the heels of their 2020 EP “Toner”, the band’s stunning debut album sees them further consolidating the beating pulse of electronic music with the raw energy of a life-affirming gig and reveals more about the trio than they’ve ever previously shared. The eleven blistering tracks from the group, Ella Harris and Josh Baxter (who share lead vocals as well as handling synths, guitars and production) alongside drummer and percussionist Louis Satchell, are made from a formula of acid, disco, blistering synths, the release of the dancefloor and cathartic sprechgesang post-punk.

PVA’s new single “Bad Dad” continues to see the band push the envelope of that relationship between frisson-inducing alternative dance music and deeply personal subject matter. The track sees the band combine precise energetic drumming with dark and oblique, high adrenaline basslines, which transform into glistening, crystalline synth melodies around the vocal hook of “I’m a beast, I’m a beast of a man.” Speaking on the themes of the single, Harris says

“Bad Dad explores the internal world of a new father checking in on his son at night, afraid of the lineage of masculinity and how it might impact someone so untainted.”

As further proof of the band’s mesmerising live allure, PVA have also recently been nominated for “Best Live Performer” at this year’s AIM Awards - votes for the band can be placed here. The news follows the recent announcement of their biggest UK / EU headline tour to date, which will take place across October and November 2022 in support of “BLUSH”. Following incendiary performances across Latitude Festival, Standon Calling, The Great Escape, and Wilderness this year, as well as SXSW in 2021, PVA will also be playing a number of festival dates this summer including Route du Rock, Into The Great Wide Open, Congés Annulés, and more.
