Genre bending East London trio PVA announce a huge UK tour after their exciting debut album from last year

PVA truly made their mark on the London scene in 2021. As well as multiple festival appearances and headlining a packed Village Underground, the trio dropped their debut album, ‘BLUSH’, an experimental, groovy and sassy record that found itself at the #2 spot of the Official UK Dance Albums Chart.

And now, you get yet another chance to see what you’ve been missing. PVA are heading out on an extension to their EU and UK tours, where they’ll be playing all over, from an instore in Bristol to the iconic Cornish Bank, Falmouth to a headline show in SCALA, London.

If you’re yet to listen to PVA, expect a blend of electronic genres with swaggering beats, bassy synths and pulsating drums. Listen to single ‘Hero Man to get a taste. The track morphs and twists, becoming both catchy and experimental, both blissful and sinister. 

In a live setting, PVA truly shine. The group were recently nominated for Best Live Performer at the 2022 AIM Awards and they truly do live up to the hype. Find out for yourself. 

‘BLUSH’ is out now via Ninja Tune.
