Alexia Avina - Unearth

Topshelf/Lost Map

Alexia Avina is a Massachusetts-(via Montreal)-based ambient folk artist who contrasts minimalism with ethereal soundscapes and melodies in order to offer the listener a vast sense of calm. She was born and raised in SE Asia.

Her characteristically transcendent voice elevates this song into something majestic. – Paste

[D]wells in the nexus between ambient tapestries, folk songwriting, and the more opaque end of dream pop… a dreamy poetic treat. – CLASH

…every bit as alluring as we’ve come to expect, the layered vocals wrapping themselves inside, outside, and around each other, creating a warm haze of sound, all underpinned by beautiful arrangements that come a little more into focus with each passing listen. – Gold Flake Paint

Exceedingly lush… you’ll feel as if you’re sharing a secret – Stereogum

[A] stunning flow, meandering across the terrain like a twisting river, one moment rushing towards its destination, the next slowly drifting in beautiful aimlessness. A stunning reminder of Alexia’s talents, on this evidence Unearth might just have revealed the diamond lurking within this most intriguing of songwriters. – For the Rabbits
