‘HEAD vs HEART’ EP TO FOLLOW ON 23rd MARCH
“The music is total pop, epic and melodic...breezily pleasant and instantly appealing.” – THE GUARDIAN
“New York songwriter Ariana & The Rose produces some of the prettiest melodies and lucid lyrics out there.” – THE 405
“Ariana DiLorenzo is a woman of many, many talents.” – NOTION MAGAZINE
“Ariana’s voice is elegant and confident and she really knows how to fill up a room.” – MUSIC-NEWS
Ariana & the Rose, a NYC based electro pop outfit, are set to release their new single ‘In Your Bed’ next month. The single will be released one month ahead of their eagerly awaited debut EP ‘Head vs Heart’, following a hugely successful 2013 which saw high praise from The Guardian's Paul Lester stating "This music is pop, epic...instantly appealing.”
With her introductory single ‘Heartbeat’ echoing down numerous runways, as well as performing at several of the hottest after parties throughout the fashion season in cities including New York, London and Paris, Ariana is excited to unleash her latest offering.
Having already performed prolifically across the States in such legendary venues as the Whiskey A Go Go in LA and the Gramercy Theater in New York (at the latter she played the after-party for Lady Gaga's ‘Born This Way Ball’), Ariana had the privilege of being asked to take part in Sir Paul McCartney's video for 'Queenie Eye'. The young starlet joined a mighty star studded A-lister cast which included names such as Kate Moss, Johnny Depp, Sean Penn, Meryl Streep, Jude Law and others.
After working with renowned producer David Kahne (Lana Del Ray, New Order) on her fledgling EP and the success of her single, ‘Heartbeat’, in various Music Week charts last year, the young songstress drew attention from many industry names. One of these included Madonna’s video director brother, Christopher Ciccone, who directed the sultry video for ‘In Your Bed’.
Ariana & the Rose show no sign of slowing down, writing her upcoming full length album with top writers in New York, Los Angeles, London, Copenhagen, Oslo, and Stockholm. "I am so blessed to have these opportunities to put pen to paper in creating music that shares a snap shot of our common young battles, emotions and experiences. It’s sophisticated pop”, says Ariana.
Above all else, hers is music with mainstream appeal and commercial ambition that refuses to pander to market trends. It is personal and idiosyncratic, with a tendency to experiment, while also remaining intensely accessible. In a word: pop. Ariana & the Rose are the acceptable face of the genre.
“Pop shouldn’t be a guilty pleasure. It’s time”, she says, “for pop girls to be cool again.”
‘In Your Bed’ will be released on 23rd February 2014 on itunes. The ‘Head vs Heart’ EP will be released 23rd March 2014.
