Ava Heatley: Shitty Tattoo – track of the day

Our track of the day today is ‘Shitty Tattoo’ from New York’s Ava Heatley. The single is released today and it’s a flipping gorgeous indierock ballad for disaffected youth.

As Ava puts it, “To me, songwriting is overreacting. It’s refusing to move on. It’s holding a grudge. It’s framing and illuminating the thoughts you get embarrassed you had ten minutes after thinking them. It’s taking moments that you’d otherwise let go and putting them in print, forever immortalizing them. It’s melodramatic.”

Ava will be playing a single release show for Shitty Tattoo at New York City’s The Bitter End on July 6th.
