This Is Not a 'Hallucination': Pvris' Pop-Driven EP Has Arrived

Ever since the release of the critically-acclaimed second album All We Know of Heaven, All We Need of Hell, fans of Pvris have been clammoring to hear new music from the alt-pop trio. Lucky for them, today is the day.

On Friday (Oct. 25), Pvris unveiled their new EP Hallucinations, a 5-song set that sees the band embracing their pop sound more than ever before. Their first project under their new deal with Reprise/Warner Records, the EP gives glimpses of their more rock-infused roots on tracks like "Nightmare" and "Death of Me" while taking modern pop sounds and fitting them to their darker, more complex sound on the Marshmello-assisted title track.

In a string of tweets, Pvris' lead singer Lynn Gunn (on the band's Twitter account) spoke at length about the difficulty of putting together this new EP, saying that she and her bandmates were caught in a whirlwind of "chaos" for the last few years and that these new songs, in a sense, represent that chaos. "There’s no rhyme or reason or hidden concepts, they’re simply songs that felt pure in the moment and songs that felt like they needed to be heard while the rest gets unpacked and processed," she wrote. 

And for those still hungry for more music from the group, don't fear — Pvris already have their next full-length album slated for a release in early 2020. In her Twitter thread, Gunn confirmed this and gave fans ample warning: "now buckle up and get ready for the album."
