TRACK: PVT - "Homosapien"
Australian electronic/rock hybrid PVT, formerly known as Pivot, has just released their second album under their current moniker. Titled Homosapien, the record is available by way of celebrated electronic label Warp Records. Below, stream the title track via the SoundCloud widget.
The marrying of electronic and rock components with which PVT plays isn't entirely novel, but the band sets this song apart with a focused yet colorful sound bank and inviting songwriting. The highlight of the track is its hook, a glitching vocal clip which is both melodically memorable and sonically stimulating. It represents the band's ability to use effects as a tasteful tool rather than as means of self-indulgence, arriving as a pleasurable product as a result.
