JVNA has been making waves with her soundscapes; an amalgamation of electro pop and melodic bass, underscored by flush instrumentals. Gaining traction with tracks like “Catch Me” that showed a dichotomy of “glitter and grit” all while directing the music video herself, fans have been quick to add her tracks to their Liked Songs on Spotify. Her latest project, Hope in Chaos, continues to push through the expectations of what her sound can contain, breaking down boundaries and confronting challenging motifs that has overall created an incredibly strong foundation to spring off of.
We go through the stages of grief, with the first six tracks working through the toughest part of the process and the second is a blossoming journey towards healing and moving forward. JVNA starts us off with an inspiring prelude, a nod to her previous composing for film and video games. Pushing through, tracks like “Where You Are” and “Ghost” come with emotive arpeggio’s, lyrics that cut right to the heart, and powerful drops that truly show the album’s heart on it’s sleeve. JVNA kicks things up a notch with driving bass guitar and bass face stank in “Breakdown” and “Sins” while exploring motifs like sexism in “18” and finding solace in the pain with “At Least It Was Fun”. The experimental energy continues from the rich trance synths with a psy twist in “Bullseye” to soaring synth climbs and drum and bass inspired bass that gave us goosebumps.
Hope in the Chaos really puts us through an experience that is refreshing and real. JVNA’s vulnerability invites us to see her for who she is and be apart of the soaring trajectory she is currently on. You can stream the album on Spotify, Soundcloud, and Apple Music now.
