Boston’s Aüva are a sextet of recent Berklee grads with a pleasantly unstudied take on dream-pop. With male-female harmonies and guitar lines that shimmer along languidly, the band clearly take some cues from mid-eighties British indie but they’re also not married to it, which is refreshing. On songs like “Into Place” they even channel minor-key psychedelic pop. The band’s still pretty new – they only played their first show outside of Boston last weekend – but their self-titled debut album is out now, and they head to Firehouse 13 for a show with Cat Has Claws, Nymphidels, and Sugar Cones.
