New Music Video From ARIA 'Love Letter (Crash)' Out Now

May 13th 2022
Today Aotearoa artist, ARIA releases the stunning music video to accompany her feature track ‘Love Letter’ from her debut EP 'Love Songs Till Midnight'.

This release supports NZ Music Month and ARIA’s EP Release show, happening at Basement Theatre tonight. 

Produced and Directed by Threading Frames and showcasing ARIAs talent for dance, this moving music video is a compelling addition to ARIA’s impressive body of work. 

ARIA shares “ I wanted to use contemporary movement to extend the expression of the song's kaupapa. Often our grief and trauma are held in our bodies. Creating music is an excellent form of catharsis but I often find the final piece of the emotional processing puzzle is taking that next step to make visual art and working the narrative through in a physical sense, for example through dance. 

I have always had a relationship with dance so when friend and fellow art creator Cat Ruka (Director of Basement Theatre) recommended Threading Frames, it felt like a really fortunate synchronicity. 

I feel blessed to have had the beautiful guidance of Joshua Faleatua and Tyler Carney-Faleatua, they are incredibly talented and I look forward to seeing more iconic projects from them in the future.”

ARIA’s EP 'Love Songs Till Midnightspeaks to all kinds of love,. 'Love Letter' (Crash) is about sibling love and loss. ARIA shares “this song was a way for me to channel my grief about one of my siblings who has become estranged. The force and depth of sibling love is so powerful and I feel an aching need to ‘crash’ into this person. I feel their absence like a lost limb and often have dreams where we are together, casually hanging out like we used to, “like it never, ever happened.” 

ARIA speaks to the therapeutic process of songwriting “Writing songs like this can provide a bit of solace, a musical salve for an emotional wound.”

'Love Letter' (Crash) follows earlier singles 'Glass' and 'Only Way is Through' and join 'Heavy is the crown' , 'Sweetheart Deal'  (ARIA x Boycrush),'Unraveland 'Awake With Youin the full 7 track EP 'Love Songs Till Midnight' out now and available on all digital platforms
