Funk with grit, soul with heart and pop with passion. Cousin Avi are as far from ‘vanilla’ as you can get.

The five-piece Northampton based GRIT-POP powerhouse have not only received strong support from their local BBC Introducing show but have had their music featured by the NME and placed in the BBC Drama ‘The Driver’. In 2013, Avi spent some time under the watchful eye of Duran Duran’s, Dom Brown, recording ‘The White EP’.

They are currently working on brand new material to be released and toured during 2017.
