UK-based artist Aiva is back with her seductive, late-night number ‘Skin’.
Aiva has released tracks with over 9 million streams and vocal packs that have been used by over 53,000 producers worldwide. After frequenting some of London’s most prestigious venues, it is now her time to officially release the songs that many have enjoyed live for the last few years.
‘Skin’’s grounding bass, evocative guitar and funk-driven, pop rhythms are enrapturing. Accompanied by an 8 piece live band, Aiva’s raw, soulful vocals and stunning harmonies create a velvety soundscape – taking you back to the time you visited your favourite speakeasy bar.
Aiva shares the fearless emotion and meaning behind the track, “Skin is my truth, written melodically with no filters so it means the world to me. I feel vulnerable yet inspired to share my struggles and imperfections as a woman in a world where perfection is promoted. For a while I was a stranger in my own skin and I had to share that to help anyone that might be feeling lost too.”
The artist’s unique sound comes from her eclectic taste in music. By listening to artists such as Etta James, Sarah Vaughan and Amy Winehouse she not only perfected her sound but also her magnetic live performances. With recent shows at The Jazz Cafe, The Ned, The Tramp (exclusive music night), O2 Islington, The Bedford (home to artists such as Ed Sheeran), The Troubadour and many more, Aiva’s fans are eagerly awaiting this next release.
