DVNA (pron. Da-na), a colourful, bold and intriguing project born within the depths of a Gold Coast bedroom. Taking control of her own production allows her the artistic freedom to truly express herself, creating a warm fusion between new-age soul and electronica, referencing Anderson .Paak and Syd.
Her sound is fierce, emotive and heads straight for your feels, fusing elements of soul, jazz and modern-day electronica to create her own unique blend. She likes to write relevant, borderline humorous lyrics exposing her very real conversations with friends, as well as revealing a more personal insight about her own past. DVNA has been turning heads all around the country with her smooth and sultry vocals. Her short career has already racked up an impressive resume including 4M Spotify streams, winning Song Of The Year at the Gold Coast Music Awards (Looking Like A Snack), supported the likes of LEISURE, Alice Ivy, Kira Puru, Arno Faraji and performed at various music festivals including Laneway Festival, The Mountain Goat Valley Crawl, among many others. She was named triple j Unearthed Feature Artist in January 2020 and showcased at BIGSOUND 2019 where she was one of the most talked about artists of the whole festival.
Sonically playful and lyrically sarcastic, with the same velvety DVNA brand, she returns with follow up track ‘All My Friends’.
“All My Friends touches on the growing pressures and anxieties surrounding social media and its negative impacts on mental health. These highly addictive, validation seeking platforms skew our view of the world and most importantly ourselves. A constant comparison to false, edited and highlighted versions of humans that are unrealistic and often unattainable,” explains DVNA.
Her track lands alongside the announcement of her debut EP release All My Friends, and national EP tour set for October and November
