Aüva

Aüva release debut video for 'Better', to play O'Brien's on 8/13

Bummed that summer is slowly dwindling down before our eyes?  Join the club. Luckily there's bands like Boston's own Aüva, whose dreamy surf-pop sound reminds us that we still can make the most of August. Their latest video for "Better," the bands first ever video, positions the band's two vocalists, tongue-in-cheek, as a pair of exes. The male vocalist is despondent, smashing bottles and wallowing in self-pity. The female one on the other hand has moved on, and started anew with another male suitor. It's a funny, cute take on that whole "Mr. Brightside" catergory of songs, and it reflects the lightness of the track's nature well — which jams by the way. Aüva are releasing a new LP in a few days, and you can check them out live when they play O"Brien's on 8/13.

We discovered Aüva through our submissions page. If your a band that's looking to get checked out, you can send us some tunes here. - Henry Solotaroff-Webber 

   

Aüva brings their dreaminess to O'Brien's Pub on 4.11

Listening to Aüva is like losing yourself in a photograph whose colors have faded under the sun. The brilliance is still there but it’s like walking through a hazy dream. From the sugary sweetness of the three piece harmonies and gum drop plops of the guitar in “Into Place” to the prithy drumming and twangy melancholy of the rhythm section in “Nothing Else,” Aüvas Light Years is an aural technicolor reverie dripped in nostalgic beauty. Losing ourselves in this sunburnt masterpiece was a breeze, and easing out of it left us longing it a little more. Prepare for cool summer nights with Light Years and catch Aüra perform at O’Brien’s Pub on Aprill 11. - Adriana S Ballester
