New Track: You Got Me Good – ARIA

Following on from ‘Shot In The Dark’, this year marks the release of ARIA’s debut EP. The initial idea for the first single ‘Hope’ – released in July 2017 – was born out of an improvisation in a band rehearsal. Already championed ‘Hope’ is a song that exhibits incredible soulfulness through a veil of dreamy-pop thrills. Tastemakers including The Line Of Best Fit, Spindle Magazine and Popjustice were quick to support this return from the London-based singer-songwriter.

Now with the release of the EP drawing closer, the next single ‘You Got Me Good’ communicates a darker realisation of relationship hardships. Synth hooks twinkle amidst mystical slow-building brooding guitars, marking the single as ARIA’s most touching and personal release to date.

ARIA’s propulsive pop qualities are adaptable and captivating. This is demonstrated in her EP set for release before the end of the year, which displays an eclectic mix of musical genres – spanning from electro-pop and soul to R&B…but for now listen to the stunning, ‘ You Got Me Good.’
