EYVA debuts in style with dreamy and downtempo introductory single "Mother"

21 June 2018, 17:15 | Written by Pip Williams

Drawing on influences from both folk and electronic music, EYVA's debut single is a gorgeous swathe of alt-pop that makes for a stunning introduction.

"Mother" manages to be at once dramatic and understated, its gently accented pop punctuated by staccato handclaps and a subtle build of rousing drumbeats. Softly layered vocals build a dreamy downtempo soundscape that feels almost like a lament in places. It's a gently warming half-ballad that envelopes the listener with the confusing heat of a wintry sunrise – appropriate, given its lyrical themes of speculation, perception, and conflicting emotions. Fans of Fleet Foxes and James Blake alike will find plenty to fall in love with here.

"Mother" is out 22 June.
