Mavi Phoenix – Quiet
Just as Italy, Austria is probably not the first country that will pop up in your mind when the conversation slides towards European alt-pop music scene. Usually that crown is disputed between British and Scandinavians. So it’s great to see a new Austrian act experiencing a breakthrough moment like the one is living Mavi Phoenix now. The Austrian alt-pop songstress just dropped the official video for his comeback single Quiet, a song that blends hazy synth hooks with soft electronic beats topped by Mavi’s bold vocals.
Speaking about the the video-making process, she said: “The idea for the video came around quite naturally, really. The most important thing was to show me how I am. We just went with the flow and improvised a lot. The mosaic car, for instance, was found by coincidence and there is a ridiculous story of how we had to negotiate to be allowed to shoot in front of it.”
