If anyone read my Desert Island Mix from way back, you would find that Nick Drake’s “Pink Moon” is on there. To have one of your favorite songs re-done is risky business. There is no way that you will be able to emulate it perfectly, so you just have to take it in a new direction and hope the interpretation turns out well. AIVA has done just that, updating this classic folk song with an electronic vibe and a style all her own.
AIVA is based in Washington D.C. and not much else is available about her. I have a feeling that will change with her forthcoming album out in autumn. Keep her on your radar and enjoy the free mp3 download below.
