"The song is about the push and pull of mismatched love and the lengths you’d go to make it work": PVRIS drops vibrant new track Oil & Water

PVRIS has shared the new track Oil & Water, a pop-centric, bittersweet ode to mismatched relationships. 

The song follows on from February's Burn The Witch, which was released as a collaboration with Tommy Genesis and Alice Longyu-Gao.

Speaking of the inspiration behind Oil & Water, PVRIS' Lyndsey Gunnulfsen explains:

“The song is about the push and pull of mismatched love and the lengths you’d go to make it work. I wrote this while we were on tour with Poppy in the U.S. I rented a house (which may have been haunted) in Kansas City on two of our off-days and wrote/recorded the music, verse and pre-chorus there… 

"Finished the chorus and rest of the song in LA with Kanner. Finished producing and finalized the track in Northern California in Nevada City”.

Later this month, PVRIS will head off in tour in support of 2023's Evergreen album, starting in Germany with a show on April 24. 

Scene Queen, Pale Waves, Bruses and Sophie Powers will be performing as special guests at select shows.
