Dubbed the Adele of Trap music, Aria Nichols is an exciting up-and-coming artist, ready to take the Electronic music world by storm. Raised in New Zealand, but based in Dubai, Aria kick-started her musical career during her final year at medical school. She teamed up with talented producer Don Fuego, forming a solid tandem and fusing deep, authentic songwriting with EDM.
Solid early influences including The Cranberries, Alanis Morissette, The Carpenters, Shakira and more recently Tove Lo, Ellie Goulding and fellow New Zealand star Lorde – Aria has put her signature on Trap, adding Jazzy undertones, unique melodies and soulful, emotive lyrics to the distinct heavyweight drops associated with the genre.
Aria’s latest single ‘Thoughtful’ describes the subtle, ever present melancholy when you lose someone you love. The constantly repeating thoughts, the regrets, the longing. Although the track is highly relatable, Aria wrote ‘Thoughtful’ as a way to express her grief just months after losing her newborn daughter to a heart condition. Aria’s heartbreaking vocals reveal those complex emotions in this stunning downtempo track produced by Don Fuego.
Aria has launched an exciting, intense release schedule for her music, with her signature sound, genuine emotion and catchy melodies she is sure to keep her name in the spotlight over the coming months.
