13th Floor New Song Of The Day: Jarv Is – Must I Evolve?

In case you woke up this morning wondering, “What’s Jarvis doing?”, we have the answer.

Pulp’s Jarvis Cocker is now “Jarv Is” and he, (or they) has just released a new song titled Must I Evolve?

Sure, its over 6 minutes long, but considering it charts the whole of human evolution, that’s fairly succinct. Here’s more information:

JARV IS… a band featuring Jarvis Cocker, Serafina Steer, Emma Smith, Andrew McKinney, Jason Buckle & Adam Betts.

JARV IS… played their first show at the Sigur Ros “Norður og Niður” festival in Iceland at the very end of 2017.

JARV IS… then played a sell-out tour of caverns & tiny venues in the UK in Spring 2018. On Saturday 7th April they played a concert in Peak Cavern, Derbyshire & most of the music on this single was recorded that night.

JARV IS.. went to the USA for an appearance at the Desert Daze festival last October 12th, preceded by a short run of West-Coast dates. The festival site was evacuated shortly after their set due to a massive electrical storm.

JARV IS… play All Points East on May 25th & then head to the Primavera Festival. On June 4th they are playing in a cave in Ibiza (can you detect a pattern emerging here?).

WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW? This single will only be available to buy at live shows.

JARV IS… primarily a live experience.

WHY? Life is primarily a live experience.
