PVRIS Returns With Two New Songs “ANYWHERE BUT HERE” & “ANIMAL”
- American rock band PVRIS, consisting of Lyndsey Gunnulfsen (vocals/guitar) and Brian MacDonald (bass), returned with two new songs “ANYWHERE BUT HERE” and “ANIMAL”.
Two songs are their first music under their new label Hopeless Records.
Also, the songs will appear on their upcoming fourth studio album.
The accompanying short film consists of two music videos for “ANYWHERE BUT HERE” and “ANIMAL”, directed by Jax Anderson and Lyndsey Gunnulfsen.
“ANYWHERE BUT HERE” was written by Lyndsey Gerd Gunnulfsen, and Justin Thomas Daly who also produced the track.
“At its core, 'ANYWHERE BUT HERE' is about wanting to escape your surroundings,” Lyndsey Gunnulfsen explained. “My whole life I've always found myself restless and eager to be somewhere else. I always imagine existing in different times and different places; everywhere and anywhere but where I am in the moment, even the good moments. I think a lot of us experience that to some degree, a longing to be somewhere or with someone you can't necessarily identify.”
“ANIMAL” was written by Lyndsey Gerd Gunnulfsen, Kristine Meredith Flaherty and Justin Thomas Daly who also produced the track.
“'Animal' is all about defiance, breaking free of control whether it's from other people, or from ourselves,” Lyndsey Gunnulfsen said of the song. “It can even be looked at through a wider lens and interpreted as defiance towards 'the man', government, or the algorithms that run our lives, that 'know us'. It's about challenging the identity the outside world chooses to give you. It's also a comment on fame and spectacle. I feel like we as a society are quick to dehumanize each other and hold people in fixed forms denying one another the opportunities to grow and evolve. I think this holds true especially those in any scale of a spotlight; artists, actors, influencers, models, athletes, politicians, etc… this can be true for personal relationships as well. We do each other a disservice by restricting one another to these metaphorical cages. 'ANIMAL' is about challenging that.”
