The Gravity Drive are a harmony driven, alternative pop band led by Elijah and Ava Wolf. Having received support and frequent radio plays from Radio 2, BBC 6 Music and BBC Introducing, they independently release records on their own label from their house near Bridport in Dorset.
The new single and ’60s inspired video, ‘Hits like a Fix’ is a piano-led pop ballad with Ava taking the lead vocals. Opening with slow, wistful keys, Ava’s seductive voice comes in with a sense of underlying drama: “I made the call, you called the sting”.
With a sense of something magnetic happening between the song’s characters, the chorus is more uptempo, with light percussion and delicate mixing adding to the emotional elements. The second verse intensifies, however, oozing a fervent passion: “we lost our freedom to the fever again… You’re the remedy that helps me forget.”
Both the song and video are beautifully cinematic, suggesting the chemistry of fated love. Like a pull of gravity, it will draw you in, giving you much to anticipate from the band’s upcoming second album, The Wildlight, due for release in 2020.
‘Hits Like A Fix’ is out now on all digital platforms.
