PJ Harvey – We float (2000)

..

PJ Harvey is the undisputed Queen of the British alternative rock scene in the 1995-2005 period. After the striking raw rock of her early hits Dress, ‘Rid of me‘ and ‘Man-size‘, PJ Harvey delivers avant-garde alt-rock compositions with elaborate, intense and elegant musical content like the magnificent ‘Down by the water’ (1995), ‘A perfect day Elise‘, ‘The wind‘ (1998), ‘A place called home‘, ‘This mess we’re in or ‘We float’ (2000). Since 2007 however, her music becomes predominantly acoustic and uses, among other things, old string or wind instruments such as the lyre harp, the accordion and the harmonica. Her three LPs ‘White chalk’ (2007), ‘Let England shake’ (2011) and ‘I inside the old year dying’ (2023) are masterpieces. Over time, alt-rock star PJ Harvey has muted into a Queen of modern folk, exploring a musical universe that her 1996 song ’That was my veil had indeed previously announced.
