Do what you do to relax, slide into some good headphones, and spin this. Hailing from Winnipeg, HAVS weaves threads of modern pop, R&B, soul, and even trip-hop into a sometimes hypnotic, always hooky sonic tapestry. Think SZA, Kali Uchis, and mixtapeera Weeknd. And somehow, you also catch clear hints of her self-professed love for Mac Miller in a lot of the material.

There’s a clear reason people keep knocking on her door to collaborate. In a catalogue compiled over just a few years, we hear flashes of brilliance from an artist coming into her own as a potent writer and compelling performer; all the while, she’s logging impressive time on increasingly bigger and more important stages.

Now that she’s got a solid foundation to build on, HAVS is on her way up; might as well get into it and go along for the ride. And check out EZ Clique, too.
