‘Till I Die’ Is Released on March 17th 2023
Having made their debut on to the Manchester’s scene with a performance at Gorilla just days before the first national lockdown, alt-rock five piece PAVÉ took this time to hone their sound and discover their purpose as a group. Bouncing straight back from restrictions, they sold out their debut Manchester headline show at The Castle and headlined the iconic Night And Day Cafe, the bands persistence to make their mark has clearly paid off too, with their debut turning heads across the industry.
While their debut single earned crucial early support from BBC Introducing, the conceptual visual EP garnered consistent support from The Manc, RGM and landed them a performance at Academy 3 supporting The Hara. Their first release of 2023 ‘Animal’ gained heavy support from the likes of Clash, Planet Rock, and Amazing Radio UK & USA.
Indeed, the band’s latest single ‘Till I Die’ looks set to do much the same. Four Minutes of weighty, emotionally-driven rock, it effortlessly brings to mind the likes of Yonaka, Nothing But Thieves and Halestorm. “Till I Die’ is a track that followed after a drunken argument birthed through frustration of not feeling as though my point of argument was being heard and the other party was instead choosing to not fight for what I was standing for – even though we had been on the same page for the entirety of our friendship.” explains vocalist Alanya Simms
“What makes the song special is that it is one of the only tracks we have that wasn’t necessarily thought through, I just sat and wrote down what I was feeling in the moment and with that it was complete that night.”
With the band’s name, they convey the message that music has no bounds when it comes to expressing what you believe in, Alanya explains further:
“With connotations to the French Revolution, the word ‘pavé’ defines rebellion, freedom and the right to fight for what you believe in. This is something we want to carry in everything that we put out. Music offers a freedom of speech with no language barrier – it has a hold on the world greater than anything else. To rebel is often seen as a negative action but is in fact the thing that has the capability to change the world we live in. We won’t be defined by where we come from, who we love or what we believe but instead use the above to our advantage as it makes us powerful – we want this to run through our music, shows and community.”
A bold mission statement from a band who, in the scheme of things, are still in their infancy. Yet it’s something that’s blatantly evident within PAVÉ’s music, and ‘Till I Die’ especially.
