A promising NYC band's live debut: Pavo Pavo plays Mercury on 05.22

A promising NYC band's live debut: Pavo Pavo plays Mercury on 05.22

This Friday May 22nd, Brooklyn’s Pavo Pavo will play their first ever show at Mercury Lounge. As heard on debut singles “Ran Ran Run”(streaming) and “Annie Hall,” the Yale-trained quintet offers spacious yet tight pop that is immediately pleasurable and continually intriguing. Their preference for mid tempo, fully arranged tunes enriched by lush vocal harmonies puts them on Grizzly Bear's musical path, although this band is not afraid to take unexpected turns - like in Ran Ran Ran's unpredictable bridge (minute 3.12). "Annie Hall" is a slower, soaring track that would find itself at home in a rock'n'roll opera's bittersweet finale, and confirms the group's remarkable musical sensibility. Cerebral and warm music like this is cause for excitement. The group’s debut album 'Young Narrator' in the Breakers is scheduled for release later this year. The band is scheduled to open for Deli favorite Lucius at Celebrate Brooklyn on 06.13, which is also a very good sign. – Zach Weg
