Introducing Aradia: Seattle-Based Electronic Pop Artist and Sci-Fi Fashionista Is an Engaged 'Citizen of Earth' Exploring Universes of Darkness and Light on Her New Full-Length Album

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Sep 22, 2014) - Aradia (www.aradiamusic.com) may be declaring herself a proud and engaged Citizen of Earth on her new full-length album and in her powerful, socially conscious liner notes, but there's something fresh, trippy and otherworldly about her infectious hybrid "roktronica" vibe. 

There's also something deliriously nerdy and inventive about an artist who would prepare for the October 28 digital release of her recording by releasing a series of wacky yet clever YouTube videos of random classic cover songs before dropping the incendiary clip for her empowering original tune "On Fire."

On September 26, Aradia will share her clip of "Smells Like Teen Spirit," a wild performance piece with the singer on keyboards which shows what might happen if Kurt Cobain hopped in a blender with Eurythymics. On October 3, she'll roll out "White Wedding," then a week later share a free digital download of "Like A Prayer."

After holding a weeklong social media scavenger hunt (October 17-23), Aradia (in conjunction with Sci-Fi Commons) is holding her highly-anticipated album release concert for Citizen of Earth as part of the 1st Annual Intergalactic Halloween Ball at the FRED Wildlife Refuge -- the perfect setting for this creative and colorful, sci-fi fashionista.

She's also 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. As a teenager she went to Star Trek conventions with thousands of Vulcan-eared kindred spirits, as well as the Renaissance Faire.

Aradia is sure to make waves across the curious universe with a unique sound that blends rock, pop, trip-hop and electronic; her sound has been likened to an otherworldly mix of Donna Summer, Trent Reznor, David Bowie and George Harrison.

Citizen of Earth is a unique collection of songs reflecting dark and light, featuring what Aradia calls "musical images of intense situations and the feelings they evoke." Her multi-faceted music and dark/light sensibilities are just the foundation for the whole aesthetic of Aradia's artistry, which includes crafty costuming, a dynamically choreographed stage show and the occasional shock value moment in the tradition of Madonna and Lady Gaga.
