New Cities Aviv – “Forever”

In which Cities Aviv continues to perform stylistic acrobatics, getting his new wave on. Approximating the distinctly British sound, the Memphis native half-raps half-sings over a classique sounding synth line. This is not complex music, but it works in the way that Alan Palomo makes his faux-psychedelic pop work. Hate it or love it, you gotta give Aviv some credit for actually attempting a sound as opposed to “sampling” it and throwing half-baked raps over the top (looking at you Theopilus). “Forever” will appear on the Black Pleasure tape, out tomorrow (November 13) via Mishka.
