Genres

Spurred forward by the lavish fringes of To Bring You My Love and the rejuvenating sessions of Dance Hall at Louse Point with John Parish, we can see a sort of refinement of PJ Harvey’s garage rock sensibilities on 1998’s Is This Desire?. The guitars are sharpened with an electronic rock edge on ‘A Perfect Day Elise’, but the majority of the LP features a marvellous extension of Harvey’s balladeer output; pianos tense up around the gradual rise of the dark country twang of ‘Angelene’, as the title track closes with a rousing riff bridging grunge and a sound we wouldn’t hear again until Nick Cave’s ‘Jubilee Street’.
