In UK English, bands are usually referred to in the plural, as “they.” But when it comes to aYia, “it” feels more appropriate. The faces of the people behind the music shrouded beneath hoods and hidden in shadows. The landscape aYia occupies is a vast and expansive wilderness of sound and voice, channelled into a singular musical vision. Sensuously drifting away from you, pulsating like a ripple on a still lake, rising slowly up and digging deeper down at the same time. Electronic soundscape and lyrics alike contribute to the poetic contradiction which is aYia.
