Rising pop singer Ava Lake makes quite an introduction on her new single “Mystery.” The track kicks off the roll-out for her upcoming debut EP The Rise, which drops October 18. The song is a blast of cool energy with an air of enigmatic charisma. Right away it drops you into a beat-heavy synth wave-inspired jam, with Ava Lake’s smooth voice pulling you onto the dance floor.
The Chicago-based artist has been keeping busy for a while, digging into songwriting, producing, painting, and dancing. But now she’s ready for a full-on music takeover. Her style pulls together inspiration from glitch pop to vaporwave to lo-fi bedroom pop. The Rise was created in her home studio with some added assistance from Daniel Loumpouridis. And although she may be new to the scene, “Mystery” is a clear-eyed winner that shows she’s absolutely ready to be big.
Give a listen to “Mystery” below.
