Who is Ariana and the Rose as an artist? How would you describe your music to someone who has never heard it before?
I've always described my music as synth catharsis. It's music you can dance to but not something I'd classify as "dance music" the way we define EDM today. My best-case scenario is someone is dancing, crying and singing their heart out on the dance floor to my songs. I'm in love with creating experiences; whether that's in a soundscape, a visual or a live show, my goal is to always to make something for people to get lost in and ultimately come out the other side feeling more creatively and emotionally free.
What can people expect from your performance as part of The Annie O Music Series?
I'm so excited to be performing and part of this esteemed series! We're doing something special for this show and performing everything stripped back and acoustic. I'm really looking forward to getting to sing these songs in an intimate setting. My music is filled out with heavy synths and drum machines and there is something so raw and special about getting to strip that all back to just the song. I'll be singing songs from a new EP I have coming out, so it will be so fun to see how the audience responds.
