Ajeva: New Single, New Tour

Progressive funk collective Ajeva from St. Petersburg premiered new single “Mind Over Matter” July 1. This song is a disco funk delight with vocals reminiscent of Jamiroquai and Space Capone. The rhythm is relentless throughout the track, pushing the funky groove with great guitar work and soaring synths. The rap section fits perfectly into the tune.

The great accompanying video features the lyrics and some outstanding graphics, including Daft Punk-like automatons and trippy visuals. It is the brainchild of the one and only James Hodgekiss.

“Mind Over Matter” is the first single from their upcoming album You Can Too, the band’s fourth studio recording, including 12 new songs. The track is available on all streaming platforms.

After their show at Moonshadow Tavern in Tucker, Georgia, the band will head to Colorado for three shows, then back through Nashville for a pair, and a festival appearance at Kampout at Cave Spring. They also have a three-night run in August at The Green Parrot in Key West.
