SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/23/14 -- Long before she was creating her fresh and otherworldly but supremely infectious hybrid "roktronica" vibe, Seattle-based singer/songwriter Aradia (www.aradiamusic.com) was a proud, self-confessed "biggest nerd ever."
Growing up in and around New York City, she was a "mathlete." She joined Young Astronauts. Her personal reading list included Charles Dickens, Ray Bradbury and Greek and Roman mythology. She was a classically trained pianist who enrolled in the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College.
Perfectly in line with all that, she's a hard core, "live long and prosper" Trekkie, gobbling up Captains Kirk (original series) and Picard (The Next Generation) and the '90s show Star Trek: Voyager.
Aradia and her former musical partner Wirth Lawson formed Twelfth Planet, a synthrock band that electrified the Atlanta scene for a few years. That group opened for Muse and played for 100,000 attendees at the Chicago Auto Show.
But her emergence as a Sci-Fi fashionista was ultimately a perfect fit in Seattle, where she moved in the mid-2000s after the breakup of the band. Not that the adjustment or finding the great support system of friends she has now was easy.
Aradia's new EP Possibilities: Light includes six compelling tunes (plus a dance remix of the super-poppy '80s throwback "Today") that are the optimistic opposite of the dark and pensive tunes on her 2012 EP Possibilities: Dark.
Possibilities: Light emerged from essentially the same period of composing but has a decidedly more fun-filled spirit about it -- a reflection of the life she has now brimming with creativity, a strong social support system and great hope.
Both are perfect showcases for a unique sound that blends rock, pop, trip-hop and electronica that has been likened to an otherworldly mix of Donna Summer, Trent Reznor, David Bowie and George Harrison.
She's got a gig coming up July 19 at Barboza, and has performed (with a new band featuring a keyboardist who runs samples) at such popular venues as Nectar Lounge, The Rendezvous and an art gallery club called the McLeod Residence.
