Sydney-based trio PVT have announced their forthcoming release New Spirit, due Feb 17th via Felte. Combining ambient electronica, warped vocals and an industrial charge that runs throughout, the first single, “Morning Mist, Rock Island Bend”, from the new record is online now.

The band added “The title ‘Morning Mist, Rock Island Bend’ comes from the name of a landscape photo by the Australian photographer Peter Dombrovskis depicting a bend in the Franklin River in Tasmania. The photo was successfully used in a 1983 campaign against the intended destruction of large areas of national forest by the government of the day.

Our hope was to examine one of the large elephants that appears to be in Australia’s living room at the moment.”
