Ava Vegas, a Berlin-based artist and producer, enchants us with her album Desert Songs, which takes us on a journey through her unique and eclectic blend of cinematic folk and indie-pop. With 12 tracks, including additional production from Rob Kleiner (known for his work on HBO's "Euphoria" OST and The Weeknd), Ava's music showcases a range of styles, from acoustic tracks like "Highway 23" and "Club 23" (acoustic version), to dreamy electronic tracks like "Swimming Pool" and Latin-inspired rhythms in "Club 23". Throughout the album, Ava's gentle yet powerful vocals evoke a sense of dark longing and otherworldly presence, showcasing her impressive talent as an artist.
A master of creating a haunting atmosphere, Ava Vegas, the femme fatale of glamorous melancholia, blends Americana-style nylon guitars with electronic elements and a touch of Gothic ennui to create a neo-psychedelic, darkly romantic haze. Her spellbinding vocals, ethereal tones, and angelic presence draw us into a world of Twin Peaks nostalgia and melancholy disco, where tribal toms and jazz brushes blend seamlessly with dreamy electronic soundscapes, creating a uniquely powerful and unforgettable listening experience.
Ava reflects on the inspiration of her album, "Whenever I write a new song, I first see the world it's taking place in. Suddenly I am in a room or a landscape; I feel the light and temperature on my skin, I take in all the sensations and smells of the place, and I know what relationship, feeling, or situation in my life this place stands for and how to rebuild it in lyrics and melodies. That's how I craft a song."
