Pop auteur and artist Ariana and the Rose, inspired by the polar excitement of love and loss, and fuelled by existential uncertainty, will release her new EP ‘Retrograde’ on March 24. The four-song EP showcases the evolution of Ariana’s art and exudes an ebullient cool with dance floor wonder.
“This EP marks the end of a period of my life that most literally felt like it was in retrograde,” says Ariana. “Each track encapsulates these moments over the last year or so where I was really defining myself personally and artistically and the music is a sonic exploration of that growth and ultimately personal transformation.”
An artist who embraces an audio-visual approach to creativity, Ariana has curated an interactive performance and music event called Light + Space, a performance that transcends the traditional boundaries of a concert. By blurring the lines between immersive performance and the audience, Ariana brings her “neon-lit, glittery and glam” (PopCrush) style to life while bringing “fantasy to the pop world” (Red Bull Music). Already a big hit in the UK, future Light + Space events are planned stateside in 2017 with a NYC performance planned for the first half of the year.
Ariana and the Rose will also perform at SXSW 2017. Further live details to come.
