YOVA’s brand new single ‘Would I Change It? (If I Could) is out now!
Recorded in London & Dorset, the track re-unites the twin rhythmic spine of the original PJ Harvey group of Rob Ellis (drums / organ / bass synth) and Ian Olliver (bass), together with Terry Edwards (baritone sax) and Grumbling Fur’s Daniel O’Sullivan (viola).
“For over 28 years I’d been interested in working with and reuniting the original PJ Harvey rhythm section of my old friends Rob Ellis and Ian Olliver. They’d both recorded with Polly on her iconic first single ‘Dress’ as well as ‘Happy And Bleeding’ from her debut album ‘Dry’ – both of which I co-produced. In my view their contributions were integral to the resulting success of those works”. Mark Vernon
Jova adds, “the song was written about overcoming fears, gaining strength & moving forward. Not all journeys are made to last & we decide which journeys are best to continue on”.
YOVA are currently mixing their debut album with CAMERON CRAIG which is set for release in the near future.
YOVA have been recording their first album with a collective of like-minded guest musicians including: ROB ELLIS (PJ Harvey, Anna Calvi ) drums, keyboards string arrangements, DANIEL O’SULLIVAN (Grumbling Fur, Tim Burgess) bass and keyboards, DAVID RHODES (Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel) guitars, TERRY EDWARDS (Nick Cave, Tom Waits) baritone sax, and pedal steel guitarist BJ COLE (Bjork, REM, Beck).
