West Country girl Polly Harvey continues to protect her art with all her heart.
In a time when rock musicians seem more willing than ever to compromise their work for a cheap ringtone, iPod or Nike buck, PJ Harvey is one of a small group of wilful individualists who protects her art with a vigilant heart. Never one afraid to mutate, in 2007, 17 years into a career that has seen her alternate bold, brash statements (Dry, To Bring You My Love, Stories From The City) with knurled and knotty visions (Rid Of Me, Is This Desire?, Uh Huh Her), she took a step back, dismantled the apparatus of her sound and rethought her entire musical approach.
White Chalk is out now on Universal. PJ Harvey plays the Olympia Theatre, Dublin, on December 19
