It’s been yet another hot minute or two since we last heard from alt/pop act PVRIS, and now the band, aka multi-instrumentalist Lynn Gunn (now going under her full name Lyndsey Gunnulfsen) returns with a stack of exciting news and music for fans!
Firstly, they’ve got a new home at Hopeless Records, where this next phase of the band will kick off and to celebrate the signing, there are two new tracks for us to sink our teeth into, titled ‘ANYWHERE BUT HERE‘ and ‘Animal‘ – both taken from an upcoming, yet-to-be-announced album.
On the two newbies, Lyndsey shares:
“At its core, “ANYWHERE BUT HERE” is about wanting to escape your surroundings. My whole life I’ve always found myself restless and eager to be somewhere else. I always imagine existing in different times and different places; everywhere and anywhere but where I am in the moment, even the good moments. I think a lot of us experience that to some degree, a longing to be somewhere or with someone you can’t necessarily identify.”
“Animal” is all about defiance, breaking free of control whether it’s from other people, or from ourselves. It can even be looked at through a wider lens and interpreted as defiance towards “the man”, government, or the algorithms that run our lives, that “know us”. It’s about challenging the identity the outside world chooses to give you. It’s also a comment on fame and spectacle. I feel like we as a society are quick to dehumanise each other and hold people in fixed forms denying one another the opportunities to grow and evolve. I think this holds true especially those in any scale of a spotlight; artists, actors, influencers, models, athletes, politicians, etc… this can be true for personal relationships as well. We do each other a disservice by restricting one another to these metaphorical cages. “ANIMAL” is about challenging that.”
