JARV IS... - Beyond The Pale
JARV IS… a band featuring Jarvis Cocker (vocals, guitar, percussion), Serafina Steer (harp, keyboards, vocals), Emma Smith (violin, guitar vocals), Andrew McKinney (bass, vocals), Jason Buckle (synthesiser & electronic treatments) & Adam Betts (drums, percussion, vocals).
+ Indie version LP is pressed on limited clear orange vinyl and housed in a 'tip-on' gatefold sleeve.
JARV IS… formed to play a show at the Sigur Ros 'Norður og Niður' festival in Iceland at the very end of 2017.
JARV IS… was conceived as a way of writing songs in collaboration with an audience. As the material they were playing was in a state of flux the band decided to record their live shows so that they could monitor how the songs were developing. After an appearance at the Desert Daze festival in California, Geoff Barrow (Portishead, Beak>) suggested that these recordings could be used as the basis for an album.
Overdubs & vocals were added at Narcissus Studios in Neasden, London. Post-production work took place at Jason Buckle’s Place du Big Boss studio in Raynes Park, London. The album was mixed by Craig Silvey at Toast Studios in West London
The first single from the album 'Must I Evolve?' was released in May 2019 & appeared in many “Top 10 Tracks of the Year” lists.
JARV IS… an ongoing live experience because life is an ongoing live experience.
Or, to put it another way: THIS IS NOT A LIVE ALBUM – it’s an ALIVE ALBUM.
