South London trio PVA have announced their debut album BLUSH, and have also unveiled new track "Hero Man" to accompany the news.

"Hero Man" will appear on the band's debut album with their May album opener "Untethered", and according to lead vocalist Ella Harris, the new outing is "a relationship with yourself that is restrictive and closed off." Harris adds that it's also "an expression of this frustrated anger at masculinity and a resentment at being unable to free yourself from that and explore the world."

BLUSH will follow the trio's 2020 EP Toner. Drummer Louis Satchell says of the album, "We wanted to surprise people and do something more than just get across how we sound at a gig. It’s quite an anxious record sometimes that is relating to mental health issues and carries within it the anxiety of making an album. It’s been a rocky ride but we always pick ourselves up."

The trio's Josh Baxter adds, "This album is definitely exploring who we are as people. We’ve all had this personal growth and the album is about us allowing us to be ourselves more and being comfortable with that."
