NEXT BIG THING REVIEW by Next Big Thing Blog Electrosoul – Natalia (Independent Release)
One genre welcomed for its return, in my Indie heart at least, is the crafted sad/happy electro pop. Its seemingly easy tingle-tangle of heartbreak and cheerful dance, seems so simple, but so few get it right. Get it to the right degree of neon glow sway, innocent hope and tragic giggles. Electrosoul does all this and so much more.
Adding equal measures of Robyn and Human League to a gentle self-assurance, this insanely catchy collection is the perfect antidote to the bored cynicism of the Avrils and Gwens of the mainstream world.
With hooks worthy of a Sugababes writer, but with an added touch of much needed regret and honesty, this is a Pop (with a capital and Proud P) album that stays the distance.
Standout track of a VERY good bunch for me is 'Fierce Explosion' a song that soars so subtle and so free.
The remix of 'My Life' included here is perfect Dancefloor.
available at iTunes :)
ARJANWRITES.COM by arjanwrites.com Natalia bring a sense of Eastern Europe flair to her music. Like a true ice queen, Natalia stays true to form on "Electrosoul V2." Her potent blend of pop, rock and dance is theatrical, grand and at times a little bombastic, which adds to the intensity of her performance and delivery.|
DARK CIRCLES 'Designer Drugs Remix" by Hypem.com Who exactly is this Avian X? Known by her given name in some [dark] circles, Natalia Ivachkevitch is Russian born but resides in Connecticut now. She is trilingual (English, Russian and Polish), and creates dance/rock music that is inspired by Depeche Mode, Shiny Toy Guns, IAMX, Madonna, etc.
My advice to you is to keep an eye and an ear out for this dynamo. 2009 is going to be very kind to Avian X.
DARK CIRCLES by AVIAN X (Designer Drugs Remix) by Penned Madness Dem boys are at it again, Michael and Theo of Designer Drugs are back with a new dancefloor killer, "Dark Circles." Originally by Tri-State area heart stopper, Avian X, "Dark Circles" by DD is a prime example of how to make a dance track. Solid beat, thumbing bass, well placed yet random samples and in key use of vocals... Honestly, I had not heard of dear Avian X until this remix and my interest is peaked...
And for that fact alone, I believe both parties succeed in their goals. Avian X attains some more listeners and Designer Drugs has one more track of theirs bumpin' cross the globe... Well played folks, well played indeed.
HIGH VOLTAGE MAGAZINE by HIGH VOLTAGE MAGAZINE Finally, high school cheerleaders and burgeoning scenesters have something to bond over. The sound of Avian X, Natalia Ivachkevitch's foray into the glamorous world of NYC Synth Pop, provides the link between Madonna and The Sounds. With all the dance-able sass of Shiny Toy Guns, but lacking the Post-Punk-inspired edge of peers like Theo and the Skyscrapers, Avian X would be fit for a Warped Tour stage or an opening slot for the Material Girl alike. "My Life" could be mistaken for a Katy Perry B-side, "Fears" pairs gently haunting synths with a powerage of dance club soul, and "Fierce Explosion" produces a sweet and easily palatable darkness reminiscent of The Birthday Massacre. Despite the trend, it's still hard not to love neon-clad platinums raised on Parallel Lines.
