London’s PVA arrive today with the announcement of their signing to Ninja Tune’s taste-maker label Big Dada (Young Fathers, Kae Tempest, Roots Manuva etc.).
Ella, Josh and Louis said of their decision:
“We are really over the moon to be joining the Ninja family. The music that has come from the label is incredible and includes some of our favourite releases. We’re very happy to now be a part of it.”
They also release a new track, “Talks”, that marks the much-anticipated follow-up to their debut single, “Divine Intervention”, which saw play-listing at 6 Music alongside deserved international press support – perhaps captured most succinctly with an excitable “God, it’s good” from The Guardian.
“Talks” is the insistent, propulsive first release from their debut EP for Big Dada, “Toner”, which will land November 20th digitally and on 12″ vinyl
The mercurial Dan Carey (black midi, Bat For Lashes, Fontaines D.C.) has worked with the band once more on production duties.
As well as featuring three new tracks – “Talks”, “Sleek Form”, “Exhaust / Surroundings” – the EP also features remixes from Mura Masa, an early fan of the trio, Lynks and Daniel Fox of Girl Band.
Of the new single, producer, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Josh Baxter says:
“Talks is about how we invent games in order to avoid expressing our true feelings or take the risk of being hurt. The song also takes inspiration from real relationships and the fictional relationship between John & Abigail Marston (the two main characters in video game Red Dead Redemption).”
