One week after the release of their new EP “Desire”, Alternative pop duo Æves have released the music video for their single “Wild Hearts.” The colorful visual, directed by Arielle Kruger, is a stunning alt pop display, reminiscent of a kaleidoscope. “Wild Hearts” showcases the duo in a performance setting, highlighting a rather psychedelic experience for the viewers. Their newly released six track collection “Desire” contains a combination of stripped down acoustic versions and their originally-recorded counterparts, as well as one remix. The duo, comprised of Molly O’Malley and Matthew Adam, successfully marry together elements of both alternative rock and electronic pop on “Desire,” creating a light, yet enthralling sound. About “Wild Hearts,” lead vocalist Molly states:
“Wild Hearts was such a fun track to record. It’s a song that you can jive to and get lost in, or it’s a track that allows you to scream the chorus when you’re in your car. Or, heck, just do both at the same time. It was a fun one to write, and record, and I definitely have a special spot in my heart for it.”
When longtime friends Matthew Adam and Molly O’Malley formed Æves in January of 2015, it was out of a fever dream. Drawing inspiration from contradicting local music scenes, the duo out of Louisville, KY found the solution in collaborating with each other. With the help by mentor, friend, and late local hero Bryan Puckett, Æves released their EP Ignite in June of 2016. After taking some time to hone their craft and evolve their sound, they flew out to Los Angeles to work with Marc Walloch, (Company of Thieves and AWOLNATION) returning with several completed songs and a more focused sense of ambition. Their new EP “Desire” marries the political rhetoric of punk rock with the vibrance of pop-electronic, creating a sound that is as invigorating as it is luminescent. In light of all the darkness shaping music and the world as a whole, Æves is paving a way for a future that is colorful and bright. “Desire” is out NOW.
