PVRIS frontwoman Lynn Gunn discussed the band’s track “Holy” in an interview with Kerrang!.
“It’s about religious hypocrisy, yes. It’s about someone who was a friend of mine. She was like, ‘You’re going to hell, you’re sinners’ [because a friend and I were gay]. I was like, ‘But you aren’t perfect either, you’re self-absorbed, and you’re calling out flaws but not working on yourself.’ She was always contradicting what she said. I got fed up with that and wrote about it. But you can take it into any situation,” Gunn explained. “It’s mostly about practicing what you preach and holding true to your way.”
“Holy” is from PVRIS’ debut album White Noise, which was released on Rise/Velocity Records in November 2014. Watch the dreamy video for “Holy” below.
