Contemporary instrumental/electronic/cinematic duo AVAWAVES, comprising of Anna Phoebe and Aisling Brouwer, have followed their expansive 2019 debut album ‘Waves’ with their exquisite new LP ‘Chrysalis’, released via One Little Independent. AVAWAVES are rooted in cinematic narratives, evoking emotional journeys of the heart and mind.
