Haiva Ru

“Body” by Haiva Ru is Stephanie’s DJ Pick of the Week! Haiva Ru is a indie rock singer-songwriter and producer based in Nashville. She debuted her music career in 2017 with her single Work It On Out. Since then, she has released a full-length studio album and eight additional singles. In addition to writing and producing, Haiva Ru is a capable instrumentalist, performing everything heard in her songs. Her music blends the dynamic nature of indie rock with infectious melodies and layered vocals.

The instrumentation behind “Body” is effective in utilizing Haiva Ru’s talents as a multi-instrumentalist. The drums are especially diverse in scope, ranging from acoustic drum kit sounds to fully artificial drum samples. The complexity of the drum beat varies as well, becoming as simple as a punchy kick beat in some areas. Meanwhile, the keyboard parts contain and control the flow of melody, supported by electric guitar in the chorus sections. Her vocals are heavily layered, with different levels of harmony and thickness depending on the section.

“Body” is one of several new songs from Haiva Ru this year, releasing alongside a special visualizer video. She has also recorded and released a live version of “Body”, which can be found online.
