Ava Luna is a unique seven-piece from Brooklyn, whose music has been compared to the Dirty Projectors and TV On The Radio. Their songs — featuring elements of pop, R&B, and post-punk — are an impressive musical collage: soulful crooning and 60s girl-group harmonies interspersed between funky hooks and punk noise. Here, for a special SXSW edition of BTR Hear & There, a few band members speak with BTR’s Matt Lehtola and perform “A Year Of Mirth” inside their tour van.
