PVA – Blush, Dinked Edition
Dinked 210 is the debut album from London live electronica noiseniks PVA. Coming up on the same Brixton Windmill scene as Black Midi, Black Country, New Road, Shame and Squid, PVA have long been known for their thrilling live shows, blending acid house and techno with a dark post-punk edge and driving live Motorik drums, all anchored by the poetic lyrics of dual vocalists Ella Harris and Josh Baxter. Following a string of hotly received singles, PVA are back with their debut album, recorded over the past couple of years, through a string of lockdowns that prevented the band from playing live. This time let the group explore their sound, incorporating everything from African polyrhythms to the bubblegum energy of PC Music into a blistering industrial whole, complete with queer-coded lyrics and a DIY punk edge. Blush is released on October 14th by Ninja Tune.
