aYia

aYia are a three-piece electronic act hailing from Reykjavík comprised of Ásta Fanney Sigurðardóttir, Kári Einarsson and Kristinn Roach. Their debut single 'Water Plant' was the second release on Bedroom Community's HVALREKI series, in October 2016. The single received critical acclaim, and featured as KEXP's 'Song of the Day'. The Reykjavík Grapevine also named aYia as their 'Band To Watch 2017' at their annual music awards.

aYia's second single 'Ruins' was released in February 2017, coinciding with their highly-praised performance at the Sónar Reykjavík festival.

What the press says

aYia’s “Ruins” weaves indistinguishable vocals and instrumentals together that spiral into another glass-cutting universe. The trio that make up the band are about as mysterious as their new song. “Ruins” follows last year’s debut single, “Water Plant,” that is just as immersive, but where “Ruins” is dark, its predecessor is light.

aYia shared a new track titled “Ruins” that shows the enchanting female vocals and the fragile and dynamic electronic lines.

Nicola Orlandino — Son of Marketing (February 23rd 2017) Read all reviews

Moody yet kinetic, the electronically produced melody dips and rises majestically, as the vocals soar into the ether.

Jim Beckmann — KEXP (November 3rd 2016) Read all reviews

The affecting electro cut winds a barely-there vocal across an ambient and pulsating backbeat with euphoric drops and rises.

It’s the fiercest kind of earworm—the type that burrows itself so far into your mind that you find yourself drifting out of conversations because it’s playing behind your thoughts.
