New York’s AVAN LAVA have just released the video for their forthcoming single, “So F*kt Up”, due out December 3. The moody black and white clip was directed by Cody Critcheloe of Ssion and underscores the R & B burner’s tale of the anguish of potential love after a one-night stand. Watch the video here.
“So F*kt Up” follows a series of unforgettable performances, including sold-out headlining shows at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg. The track has a sleek and seductive pulse, an instantly memorable chorus, and the unexpected twists of their adventurous take on pop music. Heartache has never sounded so addictive!
AVAN LAVA are producer/musicians Le Chev and Ian Pai and singer TC, with the addition of vocalists/musicians Andrew Schneider, Drew Citron, and Jo Lampert for live shows. Together they have crafted a genre-defying sound that is as inviting as it is fearless and unforgettable live shows that take elements from arena pop shows and infuse them with a DIY spirit. Their inimitable sound has inspired iconic designers Miu Miu, Nina Ricci, and Dior to use their music in campaigns and shows. “So F*kt Up” is the first taste of what is sure to be one of 2014’s most thrilling albums.
“So F*kt Up” will be released digitally on December 3.
