PJ Harvey’s current tour is one for the history books. A formidable talent – two Mercury wins assert to her creative vitality – the songwriter’s new album ‘I Inside The Old Year Dying’ is a complex, hypnotic song cycle.
Hitting the road for her first major UK tour in a number of years, PJ Harvey amassed a special ensemble, leafing through her catalogue in the process. Hitting London’s Roundhouse for two sold out shows, the singer raised her game still further – a beautiful venue, what emerged was an immersive, engrossing, emotionally transformative experience.
