IVATU is a band of 3 formed in Moscow in 2016.

Their music is noted for its trip-hop, alternative, darkwave, psychodelic and minimalism influences. It’s melodic, but sharp with poetic lyrics.
The band likes to avoid computers, using vintage gear during recording and live shows. EP «Revel(2016)» which has a taste of Portishead and Massive Attack aesthetics has been followed with a long European Tour including around 13 countries. New album is up in 2019, now in a process of searching a publisher.

IVATU uses rare vintage gear and likes to avoid modern digital sound and computers. As a result their sound is rich and potent which has a strong emotional impact.

Quotes:
«Pumped over, and at the same time rather transparent sound proceeding from lots of analog synths in combination with gloomy and very sensitive vocal of Eava gives unforgettable effect, a certain mix of Massive Attack, Cocteau Twins with minimal-techno impregnations turns out.»
- IceCreamDisco
«IVATU create gloomy, melodious and fascinating music suspense with a sensual female vocal.»
- Timeout.ru
«IVATU passionately knead a psychedelia and a trip-hop.»
- Classic Rock Magazine
«The vocals remind of somewhat of Bjork (but somehow more powerful), and the instrumentation builds up tension wonderfully, with a string ensemble mixing well with the piano arpeggio that seems to be the main theme to the track.»
- Yorkcalling (UK)
«Running amuck, trying the best it can, the senses evaluate. Recognizing the invalidity in self- adherence to the laws of hope, he walked on. Through the plains of green and blades, sweeping his hands through the rapturous vines of lust and vulgarity. «Strada» is a mysterious and haunting amalgamation of sounds and innuendoes, depicted by the sights and sounds of Eava’s vocals. The edges of the sea is nearby, don’t get too close.
The single is a trip, and you should try for a spell.»
- Сomeherefloyd (UK)
«Eava Tuevskaya’s vocals have the range, tonal eclecticism and poetic leanings of Bjork, but combine that with softer, richer moments – ones almost operatic in timbre.»
- Analoguetrash (UK)
«With “I’m Her” the Russian trio IVATU manages to seamlessly blend darkwave, trip-hop, and poetry into a song that slowly gains strength, always keeping the attention on the vocals. The music is low-key and delicate until about two minutes and a half into the track, where it starts to gain a little more energy. The best way to describe the entire track is cold. Very cold. As in An expanse of snow and ice, beautiful, but it can kill you»
