Following the recent announcement of their debut EP “Toner”, today, London's PVA have shared two new remixes of their latest single "Talks".

The remixes come from Grammy-winning producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mura Masa, an early fan of the trio, and fellow South London producer and artist Lynks.

Following the recent announcement of their debut EP “Toner”, today, London's PVA have shared two new remixes of their latest single "Talks".

The remixes come from Grammy-winning producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mura Masa, an early fan of the trio, and fellow South London producer and artist Lynks.

The remixes are taken from PVA’s forthcoming EP, which also features three new singles - "Talks", "Sleek Form", "Exhaust / Surroundings" - and an additional remix from Girl Band’s Daniel Fox.

Speaking about the collaboration and his remix, Mura Masa says, "I’m a really big fan of PVA since hearing Divine Intervention, so when they very kindly let me hear their new music I jumped at the chance to put my own twist on Talks. I think they’ve got a very refreshing take on a very classic sound so I tried to do a similar thing with my remix.​"

Lynks also created a new visualiser to accompany their remix. Speaking on the track and visuals they said: "With this remix I was going for like, Britney-concert-in-outer-space-on-DMT vibes. I tried to create this weird contrast between a mega-poppy, catchy, hard chorus and these ethereal, icy, super minimalist verses. And then for the visualiser, I was going for the intro of Benedict Cumberbatch's 'Frankenstein', except instead of learning how to walk he's learning how to dance. Bloody loved making both and can't wait for people to hear my chaotic take on this amazing tune."​

Alongside the new remixes, PVA have also announced a new VR event that they will be holding in the Green Room at The Moth Club. The event is set to take place the weekend prior to the release of "Toner" on 14th / 15th November. Fans will be able to buy tickets (in their household / support bubble) to listen to the EP via an immersive VR experience with table service drinks.

"Talks" is the insistent and propulsive first release to come from their debut EP for Ninja Tune imprint Big Dada (Young Fathers, Kae Tempest, Roots Manuva etc.), and marks the much-anticipated follow-up to their debut single, "Divine Intervention", which saw play-listing at 6 Music alongside deserved international press support - perhaps captured most succinctly with an excitable "God, it's good" from The Guardian.

The EP also sees the mercurial Dan Carey (black midi, Bat For Lashes, Fontaines D.C.) work with the band once again on production duties.

Of the new single, producer, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Josh Baxter says:

“Talks is about how we invent games in order to avoid expressing our true feelings or take the risk of being hurt. The song also takes inspiration from real relationships and the fictional relationship between John & Abigail Marston (the two main characters in video game Red Dead Redemption).”
