Their debut album, ''White Noise'', was released in November of 2014, and features songs such as “My House”, “St. Patrick”, and “Holy”. This album, as well as the band's overall aesthetics, take lots of inspiration from ghosts, horror movies, and black and white imagery. They've also released music videos for each of the ten songs off the album (plus a bonus track), which are all loosely interconnected and meant to be watched in chronological order.[[note]]For those who don't know, the order goes [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2SWk859CEU “St Patrick”]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8aQz-aKvyQU “My House”]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJ3jl794mGs “White Noise”]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktgKzlJ1EiU “Holy”]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1y0y1EDcHM “Fire”]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SxyEwNE5QSs "Smoke"]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MfxUSA95mf4 "Ghosts" / "Let Them In"]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZ2rNvqiSWM “Eyelids”]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsH8qMjnjDI “Mirrors”]], and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0NqJgcbHe8 “You and I”]].[[/note]] Following the release of ''White Noise'', the band achieved sudden and somewhat unexpected success, being hailed “breakout band of 2014”, getting bumped up from side stage to main stage partway through Warped Tour 2015, and winning several awards.

* AfterlifeAntechamber: It's possible that this is where the band ends up in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktgKzlJ1EiU “Holy”]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SxyEwNE5QSs "Smoke"]] music videos, though the exact nature of that dimension is not confirmed.


* AbsoluteCleavage: Lynn in the video for "Heaven", by way of wearing a suit jacket with no shirt or bra.


* StraightGay: [[http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2015/09/07/pvris-singer-lyndsey-gunnulfsen-i-had-no-gay-role-models-growing-up/ Lynn]] doesn't really make a big deal out of it, though she's open to talking about it in interviews if asked and several of the band's music videos feature her dancing with or singing to women.


* PocketDimension: It's possible that the mirror that shows up throughout the music videos is one, as we see the band taking baseball bats out of it in the music video for “St. Patrick”. It's not really explored in detail, though.
* PortalDoor: In the music video for “White Noise”, a door showing bright light, which is implied to be Lynn's path to the afterlife. Alex and Brian, who are not ghosts, end up going through it with her.
