Ivana XL/Eddi Front
Ivana XLEddi Front

Brooklyn singer/songwriter Eddi Front has been getting some Internet love lately, most notably in the form of Pitchfork coverage, and, being a Brooklyn-based music blog, we naturally took some interest in the artist who we don't remember seeing around. As it turns out, much like Lizzy Grant before her, she's actually been playing around in the Brooklyn scene for some time now under a moniker that we're more familiar with, Ivana XL (who as far as we can tell never made Pitchfork). Back in 2009, Ivana XL shared a bill at Union Pool with Olof Arnalds, Sharon Van Etten and others. In mid-2011, she played Glasslands with Princeton, NewVillager, and High Highs, and towards the end of that year she played a Death by Audio show with She Keeps Bees.

Back in April of this year, she tried out the moniker Eddi Lines and eventually decided on Eddi Front in May and joined facebook under that moniker early that month. No dates under her new moniker have been announced yet but you can stream two of her tracks, "Gigantic" and "Texas," below.

I think she played most of last year under the moniker "Lana Del Rey", but that didn't work out so well.

Every band on here should have to go through this great investigative journalism.

a lot of people change their band names. haven't listened to her and i think lana del ray is awful but would you really be scrutinizing this name change if she was a man?

This all looks like a 15 yo's tumblr page.

It was pretty rad being inside of her after a night at Matchless.

Stay classy, Brooklyn Vegan.

This is why BV is completely irrelevant: story that has already been covered, and that doesn't matter anyway. The Beatles played as both the Quarrymen and the Silver Beetles before they blew up...who gives a fuck?
