Oozing with slick synths and polished harmonies, the continuation of DVNA’s artistry is a bold moment of realisation. The Gold Coast singer-songwriter has been slowly growing her repertoire and trialling unreleased tracks in her live show that has seen her open for the likes of Kira Puru, Alice Ivy and Arno Faraji. Her soulful sound and engaging stage presence has helped grow her impressive debut streaming numbers as she continues to build momentum as an artist.
Sticking to her roots, ‘Sushi In Tokyo’ is an experimental low-key alt-pop track with a serious RNB vibe. Graced with a slight disco and strong funk interpolation, she fiercely adds to the sound that ‘Girl On The Move’ introduced but also builds the artistic maturity that ‘Looking Like A Snack’ highlighted. Citing Mac Miller, Anderson .Paak and Jorja Smith as influences, you can definitely hear their unique sounds creeping into the inspirational airwaves.
Keeping the track a little playful, she uses the role of Tokyo to explore taboo and female empowerment in a light hearted way with a serious undertone. “Rolled up like sushi in Tokyo. I’m not used to this 2 in 1 ratio”. she sings during the smooth chorus.
DVNA is a singer-songwriter that you need to keep an eye on and with her BIGSOUND showcases just around the corner she’s definitely one you need to make note of in your timetables.
