It’s been a while since we heard the name Aria – she first cropped up on our radar a couple of years ago, when woozy demo track ‘Eyes Wide Open’ thrust her into the limelight.
Since then the Londoner, 22, has been remarkably quiet. Having now finished uni (she took a songwriting course) and spent the last year writing new material, the video for ‘Shot in The Dark’ marks her official comeback. Produced by Paul Stanborough (Mark Ronson, Kelis), the track showcases a pop mentality that makes us think of Ballet School and London Grammar at their most synth-heavy.
Check it out below, and catch Aria live at London’s Garage (Upstairs) on 24 November.
