After recently touring with Memphis based hip-hop artist Healy, up and coming R&B and soul singer-songwriters The PRVLG have released details of their debut release What You're Missing - a rhythmic and soulful masterpiece which is available via all major media providers to stream and download since its release on 29th September 2017.
The duo, consisting of twin brothers Christian and Christopher Underwood, began playing music together as youngsters and have hence developed a musical connection that can be heard not only through this single release but also in their live performances. As non-traditional frontmen of The PRVLG playing bass and drums respectively, the pair have the ability to lock in a powerful rhythm and bass foundation to their music, effortlessly making up for each other's short comings and complimenting one another's strengths.
Growing up in a musical family and listening to their father - a guitarist - playing classics by the likes of Jimi Hendrix, The Isley Brothers and Earth Wind & Fire, it was only natural for them to begin writing together at the age of 16 and continue to develop their writing talent from then. Since officially forming earlier this year, the duo named themselves The PRVLG, chosen due to the privilege they feel having the opportunity to grow up playing music together and to connect with others through the universal language that is music.
Their debut release What You're Missing presents mature and polished raw talent that has been continuously developed and improved throughout their musical career together. Inspired by the likes of Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake and Al Green the track is a feel-good single with a catchy groove that is impossible to sit still to. Lyrically, the duo took their inspiration during a night out after seeing a group of beautiful women, but surprisingly the chorus was written at a vacation bible school allowing the song to take on multiple meanings and become interpreted in various ways by the listener.
The release of What You're Missing will surely mark the duo as a new force in the industry. To the brothers, music is a power as great as love and they're on a mission to amplify good vibes to all who will listen.
