EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Ariana and the Rose Talks Opening for Heffron Drive
Last year, we got to talk with Ariana and the Rose when she hit the road on the Camplified tour. One year later and she seems to be doing pretty well for herself. After all, who wouldn’t dream of traveling with Heffron Drive star Kendall Schmidt?
Ariana and the Rose is the opening act for Heffron Drive’s winter tour, and we couldn’t be happier for her! We got to talk with Ariana about her music and what it will be like traveling with Kendall. Check it out down below!
F: How would you describe your music’s feel?
AR: I think genre-wise, it’s electropop. They’re singer-songwriter melodies with lyrics set to a darker synth and an electro background. My music is fun to dance to, but listen as well.
F: What was your reaction when you were asked to perform for Heffron Drive?
AR: I was so excited to be able to go on tour and perform for people. Kendall has super-dedicated fans, and being able to reach out to them and perform for them is really exciting.
F: What is your role in Paul McCartney’s new music video?
AR: The video actually features a lot of people listening to the song. I’m featured in it for just a little bit, but it also included actors like Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Kate Moss. It was just an honor to be on set and meet Paul McCartney. Tom Ford was also on set. It was great to chat with them. It was just a fun set to be on!
F: Your music has been involved with plenty of fashion events around the world – what types of fashion are you into right now?
AR: I think that things that are really simple are in fashion right now, nothing crazy. This spring on the runways, it was muted tones like creams. I’m from New York, so I’m all about not wearing anything black. It’s always cool to see what’s coming next. Right now I’m really into camouflage.
F: Where would you like your music to take you in a year?
AR: I would love for my music to take me everywhere it could possibly go. Touring is my top priority, it’s my favorite thing to be doing. My EP is coming out at the beginning of the year. I’m also writing for a full-length right now. I just want my music to take me to as many cities as possible, and I want as many people as possible to hear it!
F: Can you tell us anything about your EP?
AR: ‘Head Vs Heart’ is going to have four songs on it. The whole record is electronic. It fuses singer-songwriter melodies and lyrics. I play and write on the piano, so the songs are written acoustically. Then we put it in a synth setting. It’s all about exploration of that sound.
So there you have it. Now, when you go see Heffron Drive perform on stage, you’ll know everything there is to know about Ariana as well. We are absolutely LOVING her music, and can’t wait for her EP to come out in 2014. Make sure to listen for it on Fanlala Radio!
