Everyone thinks female friendships are chill and non-competitive and that women never fight - but that's not always true.
Eva Via has a new single -- and it's all about female friendships!
In 3 Girls (But Only 2 Beers in the Car), I sing about a pleasant day out biking with the girls...
When we suddenly realize...
There's three girls...
But only two beers in the car.
Things get nasty real quick!
I wrote the song in Moab, Utah (it was inspired by the last little bit of trail back to the parking lot at Captain Ahab -- lyrics here) and recorded it in Missoula, Montana -- two of my favorite mountain biking destinations.
My songs always had surfing or mountain biking in them -- after all, if I like a guy, that' what I want to do with him. (See also: I judge guys who ask me out for coffee.) But I didn't start writing songs about mountain biking until the pandemic.
In the midst of social distancing, I had no interpersonal drama. (With rare exceptions -- I had an ex whose new girlfriend was stealing my mail, which was pretty creepy and technically kind of a felony; the same girl stalked my blog and listened to my music, then got all pissy at my ex about things I wrote... He called me one day and said, "Eva, your songs are ruining my love life!" Later, I saw a photo of her on Facebook wearing my clothes... You really can't make this shit up. BUT OTHER THAN THAT!!! Literally zero interpersonal drama.)
I wasn't dating. I wasn't socializing.
But I was mountain biking.
During the pandemic, the "drama" in my life consisted of wondering, "Should I adjust my rebound?"
Which is how I got started working on Gnarizona, the working title for my upcoming mountain biking album. At the rate I'm going, it should be out by December 2025.
But the first single is out now!
Please listen. On repeat. All day, every day. :P
It's available on Spotify, Tidal, Apple Music, Youtube, and pretty much and music store or streaming platform you can imagine.
When you're trying to be creative, it helps to "tie a hand behind your back," in the words of Stanford d.School Professor Tina Seelig. Writing about mountain biking is one way I've done that.
It's also how I wrote my Halloween song, More Afraid of Men, for which I actually researched the music theory behind what makes a song scary... and "tying a hand behind my back" in that way yielded what's probably the best song I've written.
It's so scary, sometimes it makes men's penises fall off!
Because it's SO scary when women talk about male violence against women.
While you're listening, be sure to check out my second newest single, I Wrote My Number On His Hand, a duet I recorded with the amazing country musician and producer, Patrick B. Ray.
Like, comment, share, playlist -- do all the things. Because I love this music, and I want you to love it, too!
