Nicole Ariana’s live show fuses hypnotic Alt-R&B vocals, shadowy electronic production and stunning psychedelic visuals. The Halifax-based singer recently released her EP STRAND in October of 2017 featuring production from Eric Dingus (Drake's "If You're Reading This It's Too Late") and TeamSESH's drew the architect (Bones) to follow up her debut EP 4 Seasons and a handful of collaborations with Dingus and his Dream Sequence Records roster (three of which were featured on OVO Sound Radio).
STRAND was born out of a tumultuous period of love, self-discovery, and denial. It follows the rise and fall of love and begins in “Act I: Infatuation”, where our protagonist is neck deep love and lust, singing: “We’re all slowly dying, Baby. I just wanna spend my nights with you”, swiftly moving into “Act II: Disillusionment”, in which Ariana sings “Thought you were the one for me, but I was wrong. You left me on the Coast”. The story ends with a melancholy send-off in “Act III: Longing”: “I love you still in the nighttime, and I wake up with you on my mind… still.”
STRAND will give you all those feels you love and hate at the same time.
