last we heard of australian three-piece pvt, they were exploring the outer reaches of electronic rock with their 2010 album 'church with no magic' on warp. pvt's sound has already been described as a 'futuristic inxs', a sonic collision of machine and man, and indeed, 'homosapien' does sound like pop music from some distant future where song craft is as important as glitz and glamour. that's not to say that pvt have abandoned the spirit of sonic adventure that's characterized their back catalogue - 'homosapien' is as full of nuance and texture as anything the band have ever recorded, from floating opener 'shiver', to the gothic, cathedral-like jigsaw of 'electric', 3-d love song 'vertigo', or the throbbing vintage drum machines and found-sound samples of 'evolution' and 'nightfall'.
