Ava Vox, that’s a cool name. I like it. So, let’s break it down. Ava is a word of Scottish origin that means ‘all of’. All of something, in this case, all of vox. Vox is from Latin and means ‘voice’ specifically or sound by extension. Those definitions bring us to all of voice or sound—a full voice, which is a good descriptor of Ava Vox.
What else can we say about Ava Vox? She is an emerging artist from the Dublin, Ireland, alternative music scene. She currently lives in County Meath, and when not performing as Ava Vox, she is Elaine Hannon. In the mid-1980s, Elaine formed the gothic rock / post-punk band Seventh Veil, which had an album named Vox Animae, which seems to have morphed into the persona of Ava Vox. I like that evolution from Vox Animae to Ava Vox, to quote Abed Nadir, “Cool. Cool cool cool.”
In February 2021, Ava Vox debuted with her rendition of The Cure’s ‘Love Song,’ which she slowed down with only the accompaniment of Ray McLoughlin on piano. That is a total 180 from her last recording with Seventh Veil, which is full speed in-your-face power rock.
Ava Vox followed that with a 2-track release that included her rendition of the Soft Cell hit ‘Tainted Love’ and the classic David Bowie song ‘Life on Mars.’
Ava Vox counts numerous artists among her influences, including David Bowie, no surprise there, Patti Smith, The Cure (another one that doesn’t need elaborating), Siouxsie and the Banshees, Cocteau Twins, Bauhaus, Japan and The Cult.
“Crash brings you somewhere – to a place, to another dimension, another time / futuristic. The music and the words lead me to create a music video (forthcoming) about the consequences of Global warming/climate change, to our planet and the human race,” says Ava Vox.
“In the music video, a White Witch Goddess (the White Witch Goddess symbolizes mother nature, who loves the earth and all its species/human race), she gives you a glimpse of the present destruction/devastation caused by Global warming/ climate change and then shows what the future could be if we don’t try to save our planet, ‘the end of the world/extinction of species/human race.”
‘Crash‘ is available across online stores and streaming services, including Apple Music, Spotify and Bandcamp. Ava Vox is currently completing work on a new album ‘Immortalised,’ due for release in early 2022.
