Last we heard of Australian three-piece PVT, they were exploring the outer reaches of electronic rock with their 2010 album 'Church With No Magic'.

The Australian trio have made a distinguished career out of making genre-bending guitar music, carving themselves a reputation as sonic innovators, and in 2008 becoming the first band from their homeland to sign to iconic UK label Warp.

"Homosapien" is their fourth studio album and Felte debut - a startling listening. The difference is apparent from the instant you hit play on 'Homosapien': Richard Pike is singing.

PVT's records have featured vocals in the past of course, but this is the first release that's placed Pike front and centre as a bona fide frontman.

The change provides his band's sound with a focal point that allows 'Homosapien' to be more open, more intimate and yet also more direct than its predecessors.

This is the document of a band as close as ever to defining "Their sound": a seamless collage of instruments, electronics, old keyboards and machines, and Pike's voice.
