Australian hyperactive trio PVT are back to the old continent with a few concerts lined-up in France, Belgium, Germany, Iceland and The Netherlands… it seems the UK will only be getting one concert this time.

To remind us of their energetic concerts and how they always leave us wanting more they’ve reached out for Australian artist Clemens Habicht (who’s already worked with bands like Block Party or Tame Impala) to direct their latest clip “Homosapien” with a few cameos from friends, family & fans. A pretty good example on their potent live acts.

Their upcoming dates are:

May 16 France, Strasbourg, La Laiterie
May 18 Belgium, Brussels, La Chocolaterie
May 21 Germany, Berlin, Prince Charles
May 22 The Netherlands, Tilburg, 013
May 24 Iceland, Reykjavik, Reykjavik Music Mess
May 30 UK, London, Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen

PVT – ‘Vertigo (Hype Williams Snapback Remix)’.

PVT - 'Vertigo (Hype Williams Snapback Remix)'.
23 April 2013

As masters of making things awkward, Hype Williams have taken London and Sydney-based trio PVT‘s ‘Vertigo’ and turned it into a sardonic social comment on race. Taking a vox pop from 1984 cult classic Sixteen Candles and placing it alongside another long-winded conversation about interracial relations the band shines a stark light on the stereotypes that live on. Defacing the original rhythms with mindless teen chatter and rendering Molly Ringwald (finally) ‘of her time’, the mangled PVT track is certainly an interesting one, not to mention entertaining.

Hype Williams have been mutating in and out of synchronicity over the past few years, with rumours of a split circulating since before the release of last year’s Black is Beautiful as Dean Blunt and Inga Copeland but while both artists have struck out on their own, Hype Williams lives on and Blunt has an album coming out just next week. PVT’s Homosapien is out now. **
