Return to Von Iva

 

VON IVA

All-female dance-punk outfit Von Iva kicks up a boisterous body-moving blaze. The San Francisco band, without a tinge of shame, gives brash indie rock a deep soul dustup, a gut-punching throb that somehow mingles R&B heat with icy disco. Over stylishly throbbing synths, Von Iva grooves it, and then grooves it some more—and while the outfit’s new EP Girls On Film references Duran Duran, there’s just as much Tina Turner (in all her incarnations) and Gossip in evidence.
