2019 has really flown and doesn’t seem like it was as far back as March that we covered Rings by American trio IEVA (pronounced YEH-vah). They remedied that gap by charming us with the new single Sacrifice, which you can listen to below.
The Bostonians have conjured up a deliciously current take on some classic 80s and 90s sounds: think Cocteau Twins, Cranes or Talk Talk but with a dark, lush electronic twist. Ieva Berberian’s vocals take the message on the vocals and add a mournful, elegiac quality to them that is entrancing but subtly heartbreaking. Sacrifice is a jewel mined from honest, frank reflection and therein lies its beauty.
The band has this to say about the song: “Sacrifice was written about our ability as human beings to hurt each other deeply without realizing the impact of our actions on others.”
Sacrifice is out now and available to stream or download on all major platforms including Spotify and Bandcamp. Be sure to check the band out over on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to get news on other streaming options for Sacrifice, as well as news about the band, and more.
