Aria Wunderland – Coup D’etat

Aria Wunderland - Coup D'etat

Aria Wunderland – Coup D’etat

NYC-born Aria Wunderland is going to be making quite a name for herself, having already written for the likes of J-Lo.

Using music as an escape from the political chaos of her home country, her debut single, ‘Coup D’etat’, talks of the lies fed to a powerless public.

Time to stand up and listen. This is one hell of a protest pop song.

Sounds like: ASTR, Tove Lo, Lana Del Rey, Banks, Halsey, Lorde

Dominique – If I Could Go Back

Dominique

Dominique

Hurrah! Dominique is back with a synth-laden track called ‘If I Could Go Back’.

Based in NYC, this bedroom producer is completely self-taught on Abberton, and has a knack of creating pop gems.

Of the track, Dominique explains,

“The hook for this track came to me when I was reminiscing about parts of my college years. I moved to NYC from Florida when I was 18 and that was a big change for me–I often felt totally out of place and unconfident. Now that I’m older and more adjusted, I can’t believe I let my fear of saying something stupid keep me from speaking out all the time. It’s funny how as we get older, the stuff that used to scare the hell out of us begins to seem so insignificant. This song is all about wishing you could go back, relive, and make the most out of those times you felt most insecure, but with the inclusion of your newfound confidence.”

Expect an EP in early December.

Astronomyy – Into U

Astronomyy

Astronomyy

UK-based producer, Astronomyy, shares a dark version of ‘Into U’.

We don’t usually feature covers on Indietronica, but this is so different to the original by Ariana Grande, we had to include it.

The 26 year old has worked with the likes of Billie EilishMNEK and Zara Larsson, offering a variety of sounds, due to being raised on a heavy dose of 90’s – 2000’s pop & R&B, with equal measures of 60’s – 70’s rock, and everything in-between.

Sounds like: Aeble, James Blake, Active Child, SOHN, Lorde
