PVRIS – USE ME

The third album from PVRIS moves them from a pop rock trio to a genre bending duo (with the recent announcement). This album marks a separation from PVRIS’ emo roots to an excellent writer capable from controlling the mood from herself into her songs.

The album as whole feels like the journey through a break up. Gimme A Minute talks about a lot of changes and brings a bit more chaos but is really asking for a moment of clarity.

It feels good to be alive but I hate my life.

Lynn writes about how emotions are constantly swinging from one to another. Stay Gold is about wanting to write a song about someone but not making them that important. Wish You Well is a final moving on piece, about having no bad feelings, sort of a letting go.

These songs all bring a bit more energy and more of a rock sound we are used to. They still however blend in punk, pop, electro beats for a unique sound. With Lynns powerful vocals they have carved out a unique sound.

The albums title song Use Me has hip hop influences throughout and shows the experimentation within PVRIS but fits well into the end of the album.

Overall expect a bit of everything within this album. Lynn’s song writing is excellent and the production is high. It possibly marks the end of PVRIS and the start of Lynn as a powerhouse in the scene.
