It has been exactly 2 years since Australian artist AViVA has put out a track which makes her newest single “GRRRLS” all the more special. Released on October 13th, this song reflects the independent artist’s conceptual approach to music, shedding her old sound and image for a more nuanced style. AViVA gestures to Riot Grrrl, the underground feminist punk movement originating in the early 90s, as a source of inspiration for the catchy track.
After doing a lot of soul searching (and putting in work) for 24 months after launching Crystaleyes in 2015, she has experimented and drawn from all forms of art to create from a more enriched, authentic place. “GRRRLS” is meant to be an inclusive anthem that looks at finding one’s place in the world without conforming to a societal mould. AViVA proudly reps this approach to life, and hopes to connect with her fan base on this relatable experience.
