Cities Aviv remerged today with the release of two new songs tied together with a single message. “Neutralizer” and “Graced and Blessed” are the first hints of many new offerings from the Memphis contemporary artist. Gavin Mays (Cities Aviv) says”I wrote these songs during the demise of a meaningful friendship. I also wrote these songs for young black kids who turn on the radio and hear the feedback loops.” As FADER puts it, the two tracks “almost sound like they were made by two different people, which is part of what tells you they were both made by Cities Aviv.” Cities Aviv will also be playing a free show at Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight, February 26th.
