Massachusetts trio PVRIS have just released a video for ‘Old Wounds’, the latest single to come from the band’s recently released EP, ‘Hallucinations’.
This is what vocalist Lynn Gunn had to say about the song.
“‘Old Wounds’ is actually a love song, written with that full intention from the start. About three years ago, I had a very intense and meaningful relationship with somebody, but things went kind of haywire and our lives went in different directions, and it ended very abruptly. It was just a really weird situation to be in. I was right at the edge of when you’re first starting to fall for somebody, but never got to see it through. And you’re left with that lingering longing for that person. There’s this kind of resolution that you need from them. And that’s where the ‘Old Wounds’ come in.
There was a point where this person kind of came back into my life, and I remember just not knowing where that was going to go. I told a friend about it, and they were like, ‘Be careful, don’t open up old wounds, you’ve already been hurt before. You could get hurt again’. That conversation kind of inspired the song, like… that situation has already hurt me so much from the get-go that, if I were to open it up and try again with that person, I’ve already been through the brunt of it, through the real heavy stuff. So it’s like, I could do anything at that point, if they were to ever come back.”

The band’s second EP, ‘Hallucinations’, is out now via Warner Records.
