VON IVA: With fierce body-rocking beats, this powerhouse of the Bay Area scene is taking dance-punk to the masses. Von Iva makes the best out of the tension between a garage/new wave hybrid on its debut EP. Combining singer Jillian Iva’s throaty soul-shouting – she could go toe to toe with Karen O or The Gossip’s Beth Ditto and stand tall – and a keyboard-led sound, Von Iva makes good use of two otherwise abused musical fads. Throwing out a devilishly delightful curveball, Von Iva struts around wearing the best parts of Devo, The Electric Six, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Gossip on its sleeve. With gloriously decadent and sexy nods toward carnal desires as far-ranging as dancing and making dirty, dirty love, Von Iva comes out of nowhere to boast a fully formed, idiosyncratic sound. With DEASTRO the puzzlefighter.
