Ottilia Kjulsten is Avante Black and her single, Make A Mess is a subdued and melancholic nod to the admiration of love and relationships – a fabulous presentation of what is and could be.
Ottilia’s vocals resonate fabulously, and her coolness reverberates through her video and songs, effectively. That ‘coolness’ is pungent and tactile – we can grasp it and hold on to it, as long as we’d like.
Take that leather jacket, slap it on his head as you turn.
Nothing can touch you, if you don’t want them to.
You’re gangster, you’re pops.
Hang onto that solitude, keep it solid.
Flatline that need for break. You can.
Let’s try, keep trying.
The song is a unique take on a danceable alt-indi-pop iteration. We found ourselves nodding and bobbing, doing our awkward arm dance moves (if you know what we mean).
Anywho, listen, and you’ll like. Just like we dig it.
