VILLAS are Miel and D’Ari, a classic romance built on the abandonment of convention.

Both were immersed in Toronto’s creative circles when they stumbled into a life change. Faced with an offer they couldn’t refuse, they traded everything in for an isolated farm in rural Prince Edward County. The house had no front door, no plumbing, kitchen or bathrooms, and was inhabited by birds and raccoons on arrival. They called it their “villa”.

The villa was to be a lawless place, where every move they made was theirs and theirs alone. They vowed that here, they would “sing loud, fight loud and fuck loud”. However, they came to realize that when there is nothing to distract you from yourself, all will be revealed.

Having spent most of their lives in various music projects, they assembled a home studio and began to musically chronicle their unusual lives, their choices and their incredible capacity for uncertainty. They wrote of the challenges of monogamy, the weight of isolation and facing outside expectations. Miel and D’Ari explored the gaps between the life we want to live, the life we are asked to live and the life we choose to live.

VILLAS is an electronic duo exuding edgy R&B swagger and confidence, while delivering contemporary pop melodies.

“Medicine”, VILLAS’ first EP dropping May 20th 2016, was co-produced by D’Ari at the farmhouse and Jake Birch working from Brooklyn, Toronto and from his new studio in rural Montana. Medicine’s sonic tapestry was then masterfully mixed by Jay Paul Bicknell (Grammy and Oscar nominated for The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind the Madness) at Interscope Studios in Los Angeles. Co-written with online collaborators from Atlanta, Chicago and Israel, Medicine has the feel of an intimate and difficult conversation, that somehow seems familiar and worldly.
