Today, rising Central Coast star NEAV has dropped a touching acoustic version of standout single 'To Love', a track originally cut from her elegant and textural recent EP 'Elegy'.
Built around a haunting acoustic sound, the new version of 'To Love' perfectly showcases NEAV's astonishing vocal range, letting the emotion of every line shine against a stark and wonderfully raw backdrop. Produced by Connor Massey at The Grove Studios on the Central Coast and mastered by Tahlia Rose Coleman at Studios 301, it presents the track in a new light – more aligned with the way it was originally conceived.
Speaking about the new version of the single, NEAV explained, “'To Love' was the first song I wrote after a month or so mourning a big breakup.” She continued, “It was a song that I don’t quite remember writing, almost as if it was already completed and ready to spill out of me before I even picked up my guitar. It really was the song that burst open the floodgates for a few albums’ worth of breakup songs that I wrote afterwards, but somehow this one stuck."
"I released an edgy pop version of the song on my debut EP 'Elegy', but I wanted to capture it as it was written and show its true essence off as well. I find sometimes there really is power in simplicity.”
Available now throughout Double Drummer, the acoustic version sees NEAV continuing to grow and impress as an artist, building on critical acclaim from entities such as Rolling Stone Australia, Amazing Radio (UK and USA), Triple J (Australia), and MTV Australia.
NEAV has opened for or shared the stage with artists such as Greta Stanley, The Moving Stills, Dan Sultan, Pierce Brothers, Imogen Clark, Cousin Tony's Brand
New Firebird, Little Quirks, Elaskia, and Molly Millington in well-known venues across Sydney, Newcastle and the Central Coast.
