Track Of The Week – PVA – Untethered

PVA are back with a brand new single ‘Untethered’ and it’s this week’s A&A Track Of The Week

The new single sees the band expanding on the insistent and propulsive sound laid down on their widely acclaimed debut 2020 EP “Toner”. Produced and mixed by the band, the unrelenting and energetic new single sees the trio once again combining the release of the dancefloor with jagged punk spirit. Built on a bed of dynamic industrial beats, blistering synths and sprechgesang inflected post-punk, “Untethered” is a freeing and powerful statement of intent from the band as they continue their musical evolution.

Speaking on the single, the band says, “Untethered is a song about release. It’s our current set opener and an introduction to our industrial arm. We wrote it in one session in a burst of chaotic catharsis. The lyrics follow a character being freed from imaginary tethers and experiencing the earth under their feet again.”

The single is also accompanied by a new video which perfectly reflects the themes of the track. Directed by the band, the video sees them performing under a pulsating lighting rig with angular and sparse visuals (created by Gabriel Davidson) projected onto the trio as Ella Harris dances unrestrained.

In addition to the new single, PVA have also announced details of a new London headline show to take place at Corsica Studios on 9th July. Tickets will only be available on pre-sale via the PVA mailing list until 11am on Friday, which people can sign up to via General sale will then be available HERE.
