Toronto-based teen D.I.Y pop singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, AVIV has released her new single, “Jimmy’s House” today via Photo Finish Records. The longing track was produced by famed Canadian producer Robbie Lackritz (Feist, Alvvays) and features AVIV’s raw and genuine vocals over lush acoustic guitars for a folk-laced slow burned pop confession.
AVIV explained that the single is “a song about worry, particularly anxiety caused by physical distance. We grow so used to that person always being there and when they aren’t, and you’re left alone, you become lost.”
AVIV pens D.I.Y pop that feels universally relatable, grew up surrounded by music and learned to play piano and guitar at a young age. During the pandemic, she began writing songs in her bedroom, inspired by artists like Elliot Smith, Lorde, and Radiohead, which led her to sign with Photo Finish Records in the US, and Dine Alone Records in her native Canada. AVIV shared her evocative hook-laden collection of songs called DROWNING IN THE CULTURE in April 2022.
