INFOBOXGenre(s): Electronic, Pop
From: Vienna, Austria
VIVIN are Ada Joachimsthaler, Franziska Kleinschmidt, and Hele Maurer, autodidacts and lovers of refined sound mixes. They blend the electronic with the acoustic, beats with live drums, synthesizer with piano, synth-bass with bass guitar. Influences range from bands such as Tame Impala or Phoenix to the fine arts with painter and proto-surrealist Louis Vivin being their namesake. Surrealism pervades VIVIN’s work, from music to lyrics to artwork. They do not aim for obvious answers, life is Cryptic after all.
