AViVA is an interesting artist. The L.A.-based Australia native also writes young adult novels, and she has a sound that features elements of post-industrial and radio-friendly metal. She has a tendency to play with upper and lower case formats while missing out vowels. So her songs have names like “BRN,” “GRRRL” and “DROWN.” One suspects that it’s a relevant and significant artistic statement about being heard, and that makes her sense because her music, including recent single “PSYCHO,” is raw and intense, and demands the listener’s full attention. New York “future grunge” duo 8 Graves join AViVA for this super-cool double bill.
AViVA plays with 8 Graves and Foxy Panic at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, February 25 at The Echo.
