The PVP announce debut album and Irish tour

The PVP: James Reidy, Chris Quigley and Brendan McInerney.

LIMERICK shoegaze/indie trio The PVP (aka The Personal Vanity Project) have released a second slice of psychedelic magic called ‘Track 94’ in the lead up to the eponymously titled debut album due on May 25 via Pizza Pizza Records. 

Forming in 2021, the group comprises drummer/vocalist Brendan McInerney (Bleeding Heart Pigeons), keyboardist James Reidy (His Father’s Voice), and guitarist/vocalist Chris Quigley (Cruiser).

‘Track 94 is a blurry, psychedelic piece consisting of layers of distorted tape echos, detuned guitars and blurred vocals with video and projection work done by artist Catriona Osborne.

Talking about the track, Chris adds, ““The lyrics are about environmentalism and environmental nihilism, and they are reordered every time on the fly as part of the performance. The concept is to suggest that long term environmental concepts are too difficult for us to understand in an intuitive way, accounting for some of our failure to act on them in a responsive way.”

The trio will tour in support of the album accompanied by a live liquid projection show by Catriona Osbourne playing at Pharmacia, Limerick on Friday May 24.
