Nick from Parva has this week announced that the Leeds band is once again on the lookout for a recording contract. The press release continues that the now 'former' Mantra Recordings signing have been busy arranging label showcases, and were already in discussion with a few interested parties. A positive review of their new demo recording in The Face has increased label interest, with the magazine writing: "this is a good, straightforward new wave pop single".

Parva play a showcase at Joseph's Well on 22nd February, exactly two years to the day since their first interaction with the Mantra label.
