Genre-bending duo davvn enter 2021 with their first single of the year, ‘mixed signals.’ An anthem for all the lovers struggling in the social media age, ‘mixed signals’ is a soaring blend of pop and electronic music with indie rock elements sprinkled throughout. Featuring vocals from both McCall Bliss of davvn and budding artist Chillary, ‘mixed signals’ is a testament to the two’s versatile talents.
davvn are at their best when drawing inspirations from several genres simultaneously, a strength evidently apparent on ‘mixed signals.’ The song opens on a delicate guitar riff before incorporating trap-inspired percussion. Slowly ramping up the track’s energy, the intro’s guitar work gradually gets heavier, reaching a boiling point at the effervescent chorus complete with double-time drums. Meanwhile, McCall Bliss (davvn) and Chillary trade-off sharing their inner fears and self-doubts brought on by maintaining a relationship in the age of digital communication. Cleverly mirroring the track’s title, ‘mixed signals’ features confused and distraught lyricism over an exhilarating instrumental, creating a bit of a ‘mixed signal’ for the listener too.
