JARV IS… the group headed by Jarvis Cocker, have revealed their first single ‘Must I Evolve?’ out on Rough Trade. It’s mighty a fine first taste, woven with wonky synths and avant-garde vocals it’s an artistic ,trip through evolution, watch it below.
“JARV IS… a band featuring Jarvis Cocker, Serafina Steer, Emma Smith, Andrew McKinney, Jason Buckle & Adam Betts.
JARV IS… played their first show at the Sigur Ros “Norður og Niður” festival in Iceland at the very end of 2017. JARV IS… then played a sell-out tour of caverns & tiny venues in the UK in Spring 2018. On Saturday 7th April they played a concert in Peak Cavern, Derbyshire & most of the music on this single was recorded that night.
JARV IS.. went to the USA for an appearance at the Desert Daze festival last October 12th, preceded by a short run of West-Coast dates. The festival site was evacuated shortly after their set due to a massive electrical storm.
JARV IS… primarily a live experience. Life is primarily a live experience.”
