“I wrote this song because I was texting my friend who had recently relapsed on heroin and he was super bummed out and then he wasn’t responding and the silence really scared me. I wrote this song in that moment of waiting to hear from him.”
Mexican-Italian-American artist, ARA, gleans with ‘Down’ a supposition of ‘what if’. What if the one you cared about is gone. What if you were now alone. What if you were alone, even when it’s full of souls.
Quandary is where ARA’s succinct and alt-pop glamor shines, and in ‘Down’, the executive vocals of doubts and remorse, turns into that embracing and the artistic.
Radient in a bath of acid, resisting as best as she can – surviving and looking forward to the better of days.
Can relate, indeed.
