Alexia Avina composes lush soundscapes and atmospheric dream pop that grounds you in feeling. Since 2014, the prolific singer-songwriter has released four studio albums, and numerous EPs and singles, that layer sparse and poignant lyrics within an astral plane of instrumentation that surrounds you, becoming everything all at once—like a crush. Following A Little Older, her acoustic-driven full length from earlier this year, Avina will release the five-song Crush EP on October 14, 2022 via Lost Map Records.

Leaving behind any sense of preciousness or expectation, Crush EP is an escapade of swirling synths and mesmerizing beats, an introspection of infatuation. After leaving a long-term relationship and moving to New York from Massachusetts, Avina saw an opportunity to reclaim her sense of self, which included tuning in to desire. The collection explores getting swept up while at the same time recognizing that there’s nothing more to a crush than the energy you put into it: “I wanted to sustain and imbue the fallacy of crushing with focus, even if it felt ephemeral and fabricated. I also wanted to chart the progress of crushing: from questioning and its initiation, to letting go of this thing that actually
doesn’t exist at all.”
