Los Angeles singer-songwriter and producer Avae has been one to watch over the past few years, known for his brand of cool, kaleidoscopic R&B – and his new track ‘Azure’ is a perfect example of such.
Brimming with groovy basslines, haze-soaked synths and swirling vocals, he combines elements of funk, electronica and shoegaze to create the stunningly spacious soundscape. Avae describes the euphoric feeling of the lyricism as “an ode to someone in my life, us against the world”, and as he appointed TikTok viral sensations 99goonsquad as features on the single, their influence adds an edge to the rhythm that takes it to the next level.
Having already experienced success on the scene, with his previous releases racking up streams into the millions and gaining support from the likes of The Chainsmokers and NGHTMRE, Avae’s artistry and passion has never gone amiss. With high anticipation for ‘Azure’, he definitely has not disappointed, and it looks set to be a promising year for the artist.
