New Music Monday: “Come Back to Earth” with ADVIKA

My new music rotation has been pretty heavy on two things lately, new hip hop (courtesy of the recommendations of my son, Cash Hendrix) and female singer-songwriters. While neither is by design, both have been rather satisfying. In the case of the latter, there simply seems to be a recent outburst of great female artists popping up in the indie scene and many of them have been showing up in my feeds on the platforms I frequent. In the case of Boston’s electronic pop songstress ADVIKA, I am extremely happy to have crossed paths with this great music.

With electronic dreamscapes that blend jazz, R&B, and hip hop elements, comparisons to the trip hop musings of Morcheeba and Tricky, are as equally appropriate as comparisons to artists as varied as eclectic pop artists like Bjork and smooth and sultry R&B like Sade. With a handful of tracks that have released since the days of the lockdown through this latest single, ADVIKA is building and cultivating her own powerful sound that fits into a variety of formats and outlets.

On “Come Back To Earth”, ADVIKA blends these varied influences, as well as carnatic (South Indian classical) elements to create a smooth, jazzy pop track that fans of artists like the aforementioned Morcheeba and Bjork are sure to really feel deep in their souls. In fact, the Morcheeba comparisons could even be drawn deeper, with a vocal depth and style that is reminiscent of the great Skye Edwards. Yet, one need not be a fan of Skye, Bjork, or such artists to find ADVIKA something they can connect to. Check out the luric video for the song below:

You can listen to this track and ADVIKA’s other releases at Spotify now or head over to her Twitter to see what else she has on the horizon.

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
