If you enjoy the ambient pop of Imogen Heap or the hazy, spacey moments of Spiritualized, check out Washington, DC’s AIVA. She has a beautiful little version of Nick Drake‘s “Pink Moon” which immediately grabs the ear in the most pleasant of fashions.
Nothing like the stark, pained, and wistful original, this is floating, sparkling electronica that is easy to fall into, endlessly, like passing an event horizon into a rotating singularity.
At last, a music hipster can mention a new artist in the same sentence as perennial favorite Nick Drake without comparing her to him. Thank you, AIVA!
