VIDEO: Aaradhna – Wake Up
by Gregorio Vincent
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 and her newfound attitude partnered with old school soul. It’s Aaradhna and music that go good together.
The New Zealander’s first single “Wake Up” 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.”
