Kirjoittanut Piia Takala - 23.10.2022

Amerikkalainen vaihtoehtorockyhtye PVRIS on allekirjoittanut levytyssopimuksen Hopeless Recordsin kanssa. Laulaja-tuottaja Lyndsey Gunnulfsenin projekti on nyt julkaissut kaksi uutta singleä lyhytelokuvamaisen musiikkivideon saattelemana. Hän kuvailee tiedotteessaan nyt julkaistuja kappaleita:

“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 dehumanize 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”.
