If you’ve ever swooned to the sophisticated songs of a male/female duo – think Ben & Tracey, Serge & Jane, Esther & Abi, Nico & Lou – you’ll find something to love in the thrillingly infectious indie pop of Vona Vella.
Vona Vella are twenty-one-year-old singer-songwriters and multi-instrumentalists Izzy Davis and Dan Cunningham. The band officially formed in Autumn 2020, after Ross Godfrey from Morcheeba heard their single ‘Sun’ and decided to remix it. Once released it proved an instant viral hit, racking up over a million streams in the blink of an eye.
Their quite wonderful debut album ‘Vona Vella’ (released in July) was recorded at The Albion Rooms studio and produced by Jason Stafford (Jamie T, Sports Team, The Libertines) and Vona Vella. It is available on CD, digital download and 12” black or coloured vinyl in orange or blue, two different ‘night’ & ‘day’ sleeves with other exclusive formats and signed items and is available from: https://found.ee/VonaVella_Album
All of the tracks were co-written by the duo: Dan Cunningham on guitar and piano, with Izzy Davis on guitar and flute… and joined by Jake Bott on drums.
Vona Vella toured last year supporting the Libertines, Tim Burgess and Morcheeba. This year they have supported Peter Doherty, Hak Baker and Reverend & The Makers and recently performed at The Great Escape and Dot2Dot Festivals.
Vona Vella released their debut EP ‘Go Outside Forever,’ in early 2022, which was given a glowing review by none other than Paul Heaton and in January of this year a remix of the title track from the EP, ’Go Outside Forever,’ was featured in the hugely successful NBA2K23 video game.
