PVT release new video for “Kangaroo”

PVT share Australian-centric, nostalgic video for "Kangaroo"

Australian trio PVT (previously known as Pivot) have shared their Australian-centric and nostalgic video for “Kangaroo” today. The new album New Spirt is out now via Felte. Watch the video on YouTube.

From the band:

“We asked Mclean Stephenson to delve into the dark web of Australian identity and nostalgia to create a video. Considering the brief was ‘kangaroos’ we think he’s done an ok job. Australia thinks of its national emblem as a pest and shoots it. That alone is a pretty weird thing to say about the place that you come from.”

From director Mclean Stephenson:

“This is the story of Australia’s most misunderstood marsupial, as told by the internet. I made it because PVT are bludgers.”

2017 sees members Dave Miller along with brothers Richard & Laurence Pike return home, with their fifth album. Ask em why it was so long between drinks? They’ll tell it’s you none of your business. Ask what brought the three of them back together and they’ll say the same thing. Though one listen to their latest album ‘New Spirit’ suggests a compass-directed hometown reunion, in what has become a hotbed for political and cultural intolerance: The New Australia.

This album contains that beautiful type of music written out of compulsion. Out of need. No label saying “we need album five” just a calling and an impulse to explore the new place that Australia has become. Australia. The sun comes in hot down here. Casting long, long, shadows. The lucky country has succumbed to divisive politics and irrational fear.
