Style: Avant Pop, Mystic Eco-Pop, Electronica

The pair of songs that bookend artist Livia Rita’s new release—”Just Happier” and title number “Fuga Futura”—with the artist singing/encanting in free verse along with her coven of sensual nymphs, will certainly enchant fans of Björk. The songs’ ambient, ethereal swells, and their swirling, industrial organ and machine-made sounds, are ideally alluring as intro and outro material. The best of the bunch, though, is the pulsing, propulsive “Expired Crystal,”  an upbeat synth-popper on which Livia pleads “Give me back my heart!” Alas, this catchy tune is, for some strange reason, a mere 1 minute long. We guess Livia wanted to return to her colorful coven of  “avant gardeners,” who orbit the artist in her recently released video.
