The Rising Songwriter Teams Up With Violet Jones
West-London raised Ava Zarate has been making all the right moves in the buzzing, UK Soul scene right now. On her new single ‘Tainted Eyes’ (Released via Dolo) – We see her taking on the production reins and working with fellow London soul-riser Violet Jones. It’s a track that’s rich in organic, dream-like instrumentation. Built over a lush groove and soulful rhodes keys, Jones’ vocal feels warm and intimate over the groove.
Picking up support in all the right places, Zarate has racked up critical acclaim from the likes of Complex, COLORS, The Line of Best Fit, Fred Perry Subculture and championed by Gilles Peterson on BBC 6Music and Worldwide FM. Her musical ability spans way beyond her years and there’s no doubt of the success yet to come from the rising star.
“Tainted Eyes is a song about someone unattainable,” explains Ava. “It’s a song about desire. A person who knows they are desired and loves to be desired. A person so beautiful, your eyes are tainted – both positively and negatively.”
