JVNA Takes Listeners On A Deep, Personal Journey Through 12-Track Debut Studio Album “Hope In Chaos” and Announces Album-Themed 2022 Tour

by

LA-based artist JVNA releases her stunning debut album “Hope In Chaos,” a deeply personal and emotive body of work with a unique sonic style drawing from pop, rock, and bass elements. The twelve-track LP explores many of her life experiences, covering a range of sometimes dark elements, including the loss of her father, guilt, love, lust, sexism, and determination. The opening track “Chaos” sets an ominous tone for the first half of the album, which represents the first, most painful stages of grief. “Where You Are” sees JVNA expressing a deep longing for lost love with cinematic sonic elements, while “Ghost” showcases a future bass style. “Sins” captures the sultry and turbulent energy of lust and questionable decisions. The first half of the album closes with the interlude “Hope,” which introduces JVNA‘s movement into the healing process of grief. She tries to remember the good times of a painful relationship with “At Least It Was Fun,” while the ensuing tracks all lead up to the cathartic healing process with the epilogue “Fly.” “Hope In Chaos” is a truly beautiful and meaningful musical journey that fans of multiple genres will appreciate, whether they’re going through a tough time or just looking for a track to rock out to. Be on the lookout for album-themed “Hope In Chaos Tour“, starting on February 19. Tickets are available here.

California-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist JVNA produces electronic music that plays at the dichotomy of light and dark, bass and melody, organic and synthetic. Raised by Taiwanese immigrants, JVNA studied classical piano from the age of 6 and started writing songs when she was 11. Her studies continued at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where she learned to score films and video games. Initially, JVNA made fun edits and remixes of her favorite anime and video game soundtracks; her take on MapleStory‘s “Login Theme” caught fire on the internet, earning half a million views in 24 hours. Her 2018 song “I’m With You,” inspired by her father’s death two years earlier, dared to dive deep into an emotional world. JVNA self-directed the song’s music video. The Follow-up single “Catch Me,” released in 2019, took JVNA on a sold-out tour across the United States. Due to the pandemic, it was canceled, and JVNA returned to the studio to focus on the album’s production. She pushed herself to incorporate more live keys, piano, and organic textures. “Hope In Chaos” is a diverse collection of styles featuring JVNA‘s voice like it’s never been heard before, opening up about so much more than the standard dance floor love songs.

AllDay Talks His New Album and His Speeding Tour

by

Allday is speeding “In Motion” touring around in cities near you. Haven’t heard of him? Well, (excuse us for this corny line) you’ll want to listen to Allday literally all day. The Australian based rapper is out making moves on his own and with a steady growing following, fans will go wherever he will go.

 

Cliché: When did you know you wanted to pursue a career in music? How did you decide to use your vocals rather than being behind the scenes?
Allday: It didn’t really happen in that order for me. I rapped for fun, then decided to record it, then later on it occurred to me I could do it as a job.

What was the first rap song you heard that just either inspired or motivated you?
Dr Dre’s “The Next Episode.”

Since you recently moved to LA permanently, what’s one thing you wish America had that Australia has and vise versa?
I wish Australia had Wholefoods. It’s just a supermarket, but for healthy stuff. I wish America had my family in it so I didn’t miss them.

You’re pretty active on your Twitter account. How do you deal with the negative comments that comes from social media?
It doesn’t really bother me. My music usually brings in the good people and irritates the shit people. I appreciate the good people so much it makes it all worthwhile.

You’re an open book to your fans, but has there been a time where you realized you shared too much and can’t really take back what you put out?
Not really. I’m not famous like Justin Bieber or anything where I can’t walk down the street. I can keep stuff private if I want to.

When was the moment you realized your music started to get more attention and you eventually got some star power to your name?
I’m not sure; that hasn’t really happened yet. I feel like it’s more of a small cult following thing.

How’d you steer away from having stage fright and just going out on stage, performing your songs with no regrets?
Alcohol, mostly. But I sometimes have to remind myself to become bigger on stage, that I can’t be normal Tom. It’s a good mental exercise to perform.

Your latest video of “In Motion” was pretty wild. Have you already brainstormed what’s the next song you’ll release and the idea for the music video?
I’m not sure what we’ll make a video for. But we’re out of video money so whatever it is, it will be much worse than the “In Motion” video.

We’re curious: why did you delay your forthcoming album? When did you decide that you were officially finished with it without any further edits?
You can keep working on something forever but at a point, I just had to say it was done. I’m not sure why it took so long. I think I was going through some things and I wasn’t inspired to make music.

Is there one specific track we should look out for that holds a deeper meaning than the others?
I think these songs are all pretty meaningful, with an exception of maybe “Sides” and “No Saint.” Those have a different purpose. I probably made too many meaningful, morose songs.

It’s pretty cool you do listening parties with your fans. What motivated you to have those and what’s it been like receiving feedback or just chilling with them?
I’m not sure how we came up with the idea, but it was fun. There were a lot of hugs from cool people. It reminded me of why I make music, so it was definitely worthwhile.

If money wasn’t an issue, what’s something you wish to do for your fans in the future?
Never make them pay for anything again, I suppose. Free shows, free music. But that won’t happen unless I win the lotto, so, unfortunately, they’re going to have to keep paying for things.
