Originally from Washington, DC, LAVAGXRL made the move to Boston to study music, intent on building upon their already well-established talents. They soon found themself drawn to instrumental compositions, taking inspiration from emo, hip-hop and jazz to create an atmospheric, glitchy noise project under the moniker frigid. Their experience in DJing and DIY booking/sound engineering – teamed with a couple of songwriting studios with Grammy award-winner Esperanza Spalding and jazz pianist Vijay Iyer – saw LAVAGXRL lean into the joy of improvisation and spontaneity.  This unrestrained attitude of impulsive creativity is the foundation of LAVAGXRL and it’s on their debut album, Faith in Chaos, that the delight of crafting your own path truly blossoms. The playfulness of the beats, flourishes of strange electronica and unexpected synth shifts, encourages the allure of the accidental and the bliss of loosening our grip. As a songwriter who experiences synesthesia, LAVAGXRL fosters a kaleidoscope of ever-shifting hues on their debut. “I feel everything that you put out into the world has a charge, like a spell,” they say. “You have to trust yourself.” By accepting all facets of being, and creating a space where fluidity is celebrated, Faith in Chaos is an essential reminder that despite the absurdity that surrounds us, there is beauty in simply being alive.
