A Chat With AViVA
March 3, 2016
Sydney act AViVA are primed for success in 2016 with a new track released and a debut album on its way.
The Melbourne office has been following AViVA for a while now, and it was such a pleasure to touch base with them and see what's on the cards for 2016.
'Electric Venom' has had some huge love on Spotify of late, including playlists ‘lush and atmospheric’ and ‘office jams’. Are you guys playlisters yourselves? What would be on your office jams playlist?
Yes, I love a good playlist!!
I think a good office jam list would need a 3 way mix, some classic feel good funk tunes like; Play ‘That Funky Music’ by White Cherry, ‘Brick House’ by The Commodores, and some 90's classics like ‘Semi-Charmed Life’ by Third Eye Blind. Then you'd need your emotional element with the likes of Lana Del Rey and Halsey... The third slice of the pie is some current pop - a few catchy bangers to finish off a working day and keep morale up!
You’ve been working with Ben Shigel and Tom Coyne (Justin Bieber and The Weeknd) - how did you get these guys involved? If you could collaborate with anyone who would it be? (vocalist/producer - anything)
Just reached out to them to see if they'd be interested in working on the track ‘Electric Venom’. It seems daunting sometimes, getting in contact with people, but you just have to get out there.
There are heaps of artists and producers I would love to work with!! Lana Del Rey, Justin Bieber, Zayne, The Weeknd, Halsey or work with Max Martin, Diplo, BIFFCO, Major Lazar or DJ Snake.
It's a long list, but there are so many talented people I would love to work and create new music with!
If AViVA’s ‘Electric Venom’ was to be synced to any product - what would it be?
I think it could work well in a long Nike or Adidas ad. Something a bit sporty but also sleek and fashion-y.
What are your plans for the rest of 2016? Any tours/further releases?
Another Australian tour and working on our debut album!
