Having been labeled promising over on HumanHuman recently, the Austrian alt-pop newcomer Mavi Phoenix is beginning to make a name for herself. I have a lot of time for well written pop music with an urban edge; a sound that Mavi is beginning to make her own.
The new single ‘Aventura’ is another leap forward; the melody skips along a brash backing, throwing fiery lyrics out and establishing Mavi’s confident writing style. This isn’t a stroke of fortune, ‘Quiet’ and ‘Love Longtime’ laid the foundation for this new sound. It seems like quality output isn’t a problem for Phoenix, expect more as the months roll on.
