With her new single “Rearview Mirror,” singer/songwriter Ava Della Pietra cements her place as a pop visionary, intertwining cinematic visuals with heartfelt narratives that draw the viewer into her emotional world. Out on all platforms, the song was inspired by a car ride where Ava’s guy friend, who was in the front seat with his girlfriend, couldn’t stop glancing back at her through his rearview mirror. Ultimately, the song shifts to a deeper, metaphorical level, reflecting on why someone like that needs to be left behind, just like the view in a rearview mirror.

The lyrics of “Rearview Mirror” weave a narrative that many will find familiar, “You say you just wanna be friends, But you’re looking at me through the rearview mirror.” The music video mirrors this dynamic, with vibrant visuals that capture the essence of youthful allure and the highs and lows of fleeting connections.

Ava explains:

“It’s about those confusing moments where he’d deny any feelings for me, even though his romantic gestures said otherwise.”

“Rearview Mirror” follows Ava’s successful singles “sick,” “ego,” and “talk it out,” each of which has built on her reputation for delivering compelling narratives and infectious melodies. Her achievements over the past few years have been nothing short of remarkable. Her dedication to her craft is acknowledged in numerous national and international songwriting competitions, including the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and the International Songwriting Competition (ISC), where she has consistently emerged on top.

In addition to her musical accolades, Ava is currently enrolled in the prestigious Harvard University-Berklee College of Music program, balancing a demanding academic schedule with her burgeoning music career. This unique program allows Ava to hone her musical skills while also broadening her academic horizons.  Her transition from “girl-next-door” to a mature, self-assured artist showcases her growth.
