Fresh off the back of their rousing Coachella performance over the weekend, PVRIS’ hype is currently riding on a pretty comfortable high. In 2017, the band released the excellent All We Know of Heaven, All We Need of Hell, proving they’re clearly leading the way in a new era of dark alt-pop, exploring moods and tones that have yet to be touched.

In a recent interview with Rocksound, singer Lynn Gunn opened up about where the band are at in terms of writing new music, and how her newfound state of mind is impacting the creative process.

But if you’re expecting new PVRIS tunes to drop soon, Lynn said that at the moment “it’s too early” to know how the band plan to roll out their next album.

“I feel like with both this last record and whatever’s coming next… with All We Know Of Heaven… we started on that pretty much straight after White Noise came out, and I feel like the inner world of PVRIS is always one step ahead of everything! It’s a little too early to know, but we’re having fun with it.”

She also shed light on the new positive mindset she’s found going into the creation of whatever’s next for PVRIS, mentioning that it is much more “positive”.

“I think the biggest difference now is being in a different headspace,” she says. “It’s a much more positive headspace, but it’s also a much more open and accepting, embracing headspace too.

“I’m really excited to tap into that and see what’s in there, because I feel like the first two records reflect a lot of anxieties – and how I was dealing with that was kind of by blocking everything else out.

“Now it’s opened up, there’s a whole new perception of things, I’ve got a whole new set of glasses on. I want to see what’s going on behind that.”

She’s also mentioned that she’s been collaborating with other “producers, writers and creatives” on music that won’t necessarily be PVRIS-related, as a means to “get the gears rolling” – and best of all, she summed the whole process up in one word: “fun”.
