Iva are ready to become "Girls on Film"
Before that, though, Von Iva
will be releasing a new EP. Titled Girls on Film (how completely appropriate),
the six-song disc drops Oct. 28. It features three of their best songs
from the 2007 album On This Island (“LALA,” “Birds of
Prey” and “Guise”) and three new tracks (“Living
For It,” “Emerald Eyes” and “Electricity”).
If you happened to miss my
short profile of Von Iva in last month's Queer Women to Watch: Fall, then
I'll remind you: Bex and Lay Lay play for our team, and are also a couple
(five years running!) Gay girls who can play very, very well — I'm
always behind that.
If you're a fan of Le Tigre, Lesbians on Ecstasy, The Blow or The Gossip, Von Iva should be your new discovery. Check them out on tour now through December. On select dates, they'll be joined by Girl in a Coma. That's sure to be one amazingly lesbian rock show. I can just see the missed connections now.
