First Listen: Aaradhna wants us to "Wake Up"

When Aaradhna’s harmonies spill through the speakers in her opening track, you learn that it’s not just treble and reverb that go good together. It’s her silky voice over that doo-wop style (a sound she likes to call Retro/Metro), and her newfound attitude partnered with old school soul. It’s Aaradhna and music that go good together.
 
Her first single ‘Wake Up’ - a plea to herself - was penned around the time she realized life was passing her by and that she was ready to get back in the game. “At the time I was listening to Amy Winehouse,” says Aaradhna. “I used to go to her Back to Black album; I’d repeat it all day because I connected with all her music.

The thing I liked about it was that she didn’t care about what other people said, and she really spoke her mind...that’s what I wanted to do, I wanted to make music that I could really say what I wanted to say.”
 
The results of her journey are a much talked about album and a great first single, "Wake Up." It's our newest First Listen, and it's a winner. Check it out below and just try to avoid swaying in your seat!
