‘Alternative’ may be too banal a word to describe New Spirit; it sounds a little more like a robot and an alien beast getting down in the outback.

Since their legal name change in 2010, Aussie band PVT (previously Pivot) have further embraced surrealism and continued experimentation, delivering them closer to the uttermost peak of self-discovery. New Spirit finds them expanding again, building an exhilarating soundscape from an abundance of simple compulsions piled on top of one another, reaching sky-high. It lends the record a rhythmic consistency, which – although as smooth as sandpaper – is where it gets its dense, voltaic texture. Listeners will be rewarded with a spiritual buzz like no other.

New Spirit is out February 17 via Create/Control.
