PVT - “Light Up Bright Fires” (video)

[19 October 2010]

By Timothy Gabriele

Out of focus more than in, this video starts out with Close Encounters tones and then proceeds to circle around video pixelated images, reflections of faces, obscured shadows, and disfigured animation of the members of PVT nee Pivot. Quite a good tune with convulsive percussive fits and pointed low-end sine wave propelling a song that’s the kind of hard-edged synth-driven pop music that all but disappeared from this culture after the crash and burn of industrial at the end of the previous millenium. PVT are releasing a digital remix EP for the track with versions by Nathan Fake, Seekae, Dorian Concept, and Danimals.
