With the release of the critically-lauded Services EP in early 2010 and a near-constant stream of shows and short tours over the successive months, NYC natives Ava Luna have built a reputation for noisy, manic basement soul music in the form of stark, earthy synth-driven beats coupled with tight, prismatic vocal harmonies, which Christopher Weingarten has described as “beautiful, infectious, and damn-near indescribable.” In a church basement in Brooklyn’s deep south, they hone an eclectic mashup of girl group harmonies, growling synth-funk, shimmering distortion, soul stylings set to post-punk snobbery, complex compositions in the guise of quirky pop songs; Al Green singing with Wire, Depeche Mode backing Jamie Lidell. The band has drawn comparisons to TV on the Radio, Dirty Projectors, Prince, Arab on Radar, Phillip Glass, James Chance, Aphex Twin.... Since the band’s inception in 2008, it’s been a slow but steady rise. Before the year is out, Ava Luna will embark on tours of the US and Europe, where they were invited to play the Transmusicales Festival in France; prep a full-length for the spring to be released on Infinite Best Recordings; and continue to expand their unique sound.
