POZ Interview: PVRIS + Matty Arsenault

by Zack Zarrillo - Jul 25, 2014

PropertyOfZack Senior Writer Jesse Richman headed out to Warped Tour a few weeks ago to sweat while watching bands, but to also do some great interviews for the site. 

Jesse spoke with Lynn Gunn from PVRIS about their Warped Tour experiences, singing to Rise after almost being on another label, new music, and the current scene before transitioning into a conversation with Matty from A Loss For Words. Read the interview below!

by Jesse Richman

Can I get your name and what you do in the band?
LG: Lyndsey [Gunn], I sing and play guitar in Pvris.

First of all, how’s Warped Tour going for you?

Tell me a little bit about what the experience has been like for you.
Lots of sun and burning and walking and pushing heavy objects and having fun!

Are you guys on the full run of the tour?
No, we only get two weeks. We hop off tomorrow.

So you’re right at the end of your run. Are you feeling run ragged yet?
No! We’re finally in the groove of it, and we want it to continue, to keep going to the end, but we only got two weeks. We finally got in the groove and started making friends, and it’s like “bye, you can’t be here anymore!”

You’re one of those bands that, for the last year or so, I would hear little things about, here and there. We did a POZ Showcase on you a while ago. And then suddenly, in the last couple months, it feels like you’re everywhere. Tell me a little bit about what’s been going down. I know you just signed to Rise / Velocity — tell me how that came together.
We did sign with them. We were originally supposed to sign to a different label. This actually happened a year ago, one year from two days ago. We were supposed to sign our contracts to a different label — I’m not going to say who — but literally the morning that we were supposed to sign, Matty [Arsenault, band manager / A Loss For Words vocalist] came running up to us, “don’t sign anything, we got an offer from Rise.”

Is that a label you’d had your eye on since the beginning?
Yeah. We had kind of settled for another label, we were kind of like “whatever, we can make this work.” Rise was the top dog that we were aiming for, and we ended up getting it!

One of the reasons I ask is because, I know you’re on the Velocity side which is a little different, but whatever Rise’s core sound is — and they’ve kind of got a couple of them now — none of it is quite what you guys are doing.
Yeah, it’s very, very different. They’re all really excited about it, which is cool.

What was it about Rise that you clicked with?
The freedom. They don’t have their hands in anything, we just get to do whatever the hell we want. To the point where, like, we sent over pre-production and rough mixes while we were in the studio, and they heard them and they didn’t know what to do, it was so different. That’s how much freedom you have, you can completely wow them.

That leads right into something else I was going to ask. I’ve heard the little bit that you’ve put out from the upcoming album, and it is a very different sound from where Pvris started out. Tell me a little bit about how your sound evolved, and where that came from.
I’ve actually been really into using programs like Reason for electronic music. Even when we were recording our EP I was into that stuff, and just wasn’t brave enough to incorporate it. It’s funny, because Blake [Harnage, producer of Pvris’ upcoming full length and member of Versa] actually was the one who got me into that years ago. I went to see them at a show and was like “yo, I know you do all this stuff, can you teach me? Or just help me out a little?” He and I have been in touch ever since, and he’s kind of been a mentor to me with electronic programming. It was cool to finally get in the studio with him — we put our sounds together, and went off. It was fun.
