It’s an exciting time to be a PVRIS fan right now. Their last EP, Use Me saw the band transcend down an alternative/pop route in their music which isn’t necessarily a bad thing because our reviewer still gave it a solid review, saying “…it has a much poppier sound than anything they have done before…”
Let’s talk about their newest single ‘Monster’ though. Wow, I am in awe. PVRIS sound like they are in their element here, blending the sound from previous releases with boppier, R&B elements. The chorus carries an insane hip hoppy, electronic beat that’s hard not to get around, and sends the band into the pop stratosphere.
‘Monster’ is a wild track that sits on par with some of the biggest mainstream releases this year and whether you vibe with mainstream pop or not, it’s hard not to get into this song. As always with any new music though, it’s best to keep your mind open. 10/10 recommend.
