The critically acclaimed Australian band PVT, formerly Pivot, mixes elements of pop and post-punk to create their truly electrifying, extremely seductive music. With the release of their latest album, Church With No Magic, as well as their stunning live performances (just check out the attention they got from AOL Interface when they performed live), the band is on its way up as they transition into American music waves. The chilly, dark, and electric sound of “Timeless” is haunting and intriguing, and you cant help but be pulled in as the song slowly builds up its energy.

Its hard to put a finger on what exactly works so well for PVT: Is it the pacing? The alienating sound? The chilly electro beat? Give them a listen and decide for yourself what it is that brings you in, but we’re certain that you’ll get hooked almost immediately. Check out PVT in the Beatcrave Fav series below!
