Festival Review: Young Henry's Small World Festival ft. The Church + DZ Deathrays - Sydney Park, St Peters (19.09.15)

Young Henry's Small World Festival celebrates the four essential things in life - booze, music, food, and good mates. Set for the first time in St Peters' iconic Sydney Park, the festival specialises in everything good that's local, solidifying itself as one of those events that are really important to the Sydney arts and culture scene.

Exclusive Playlist: PVT (Sydney) Bring Us 10 Songs For Responsible Drinking

In the lead up to their slot at Small World Festival the lads from PVT have curated a list of their favourite songs for responsible drinking. In their words 'Music is one of the few things we would reject the idea of consuming in moderation. With that in mind, looks like we're playing a festival run by the maker of particularly good tasting local beer. We would prescribe a full glass of water and one of these tracks for every Young Henrys ale you consume at Small World Festival. Stay safe out there kids'. Wise words, mull these choice cuts over your sonic palette and maybe check out a few of PVT's own.

Live Review: Passion Pit + PVT - Palace Theatre, Melbourne (30.07.13)

Melbourne’s Palace Theatre has delivered its fair share of incredible gigs over the years, and the anticipation surrounding Passion Pit’s Splendour sideshow was rampant. Add Australia’s own experimental trio PVT to the mix, and tonight was undoubtedly the concoction for a very exciting affair.

Splendour Sideshow Review: Passion Pit + PVT - Enmore Theatre, Sydney (27.07.13)

Good parties are a dime a dozen. Boring guests, over planning and too many onesies can all scuttle a promising celebration. Often, all a good knees-up requires is simply jumping around the room, belting out the chorus to your favourite songs and on this front, Passion Pit bring the party at their Splendour sideshow in Sydney.

PVT played an intimate industry showcase last week to celebrate the release of their brand new album Homosapien, previewing tracks from the record as well as old favourites such as "Window". Following months of touring around the world with artists like Gotye, the band have returned to Australia sounding stronger than ever. Their shows in March should be killer.

Album Review: PVT - Homosapien (2013 LP)

PVT are back in action with their fourth studio album Homosapien. The first thing you notice about the new record is the difference its sound, which sees Richard Pike as a fully-fledged frontman, with added vocals on top of their established electronic synth-rock sounds.

Live Review: Gotye + PVT + Bertie Blackman - Sydney Entertainment Centre (14.12.12)

Some artists believe you’re only as good as your last show. Gotye’s concert at the Entertainment Centre was his final one of the world tour in a year that has seen him win more hearts, minds and awards then ever. The music sounded perfect, the visuals were dazzling and he could retire tomorrow knowing that he’d offered something really wonderful and artistic.

Live Review: Gotye + PVT + Bertie Blackman - The Riverstage (12.12.12)

It is so good to have the man of the hour back in the country. For last eight or so months, Gotye AKA Wally De Backer has been touring the world and being generally amazing. He's bringing the tour to a close in his home country. Making Mirrors is not even a year and a half old yet and it is still gaining critical acclaim at the Arias and now, The Grammys; a huge thing for this little Australian artist. This tour is a big step up from the last time he toured the country, and shows what a true musical genius this man is. Supporting him on this tour were the sensational Bertie Blackman and PVT.

New Music Video: PVT "Nightfall" (2012)

PVT are back with a new single in "Nightfall", and for its music video they've teamed up with Jennifer Juniper Stratford. The result is a colourful, trippy, possibly Tron inspired journey. Enjoy it below!
