Hi! I’ve been great. It’s so nice to interview with you again 🙂
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Super Fly”?
Sure, I teamed up with a very talented producer named Ikenna FuNken. It’s actually our first song we have ever done together. We thought the song was done until rapper Only1Theory heard the song and decided to write a verse to it. She really took the song the next level!
Did any event in particular inspired you to write this song?
Yes, I actually got inspired by a classic book I love very much called the Metamorphosis. It’s written by Franz Kafka and it’s about a man who wakes up one day as a bug. While the book isn’t necessarily literal, that imagery always stuck in my head. Super Fly is a play on words implying that the person you’re into is not only fly (as in cool), but he may even be an actual fly that can bite both literally and figuratively.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Yes! I actually already shot some footage and created a lyric video. I’ll be releasing that first and then the actual video:)
How was the recording and writing process?
It was a lot of fun! This one felt very organic, it started with the melody. Once I came up with the title the rest of the lyrics came really easily.
Do you tend to take a different approach when you are collaborating with someone else rather than in your own?
Yes collaborating takes a lot of stepping back. It’s a beautiful thing because it reminds you that music isn’t about your ego but rather about making a great song.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
I have most of the songs on the EP completed. I collaborated with a lot of talented music producers and they’ll be more songs with Ikenna as well.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
The title is still a secret:) but yes the EP should be out in September!
Any plans to hit the road?
I will actually be doing a few EP release performances. Mostly in the north east and in LA. All of this will be posted on my website so stay tuned.
What else is happening next in Aria Wunderlands’ world?
Just writing a lot and collaborating on some other projects separate from my own. I plan to travel to some new places this summer for inspiration. I’ve also been very interested in animal rights lately and have been supporting an amazing organization called I Stand With My Pack. You can check them out at www.iswmp.com
