Ariane is a French-American songstress. Her new single “Sweatshirt” is a dark pop record, toeing the lien between grit and vulnerability. The new song “Sweatshirt” paints a picture of a lustful love affair gone awry and the struggle of letting go. Ariane’s slick vocal is complimented by a dirty synth bass à la Banks, creating a sultry and unsettling environment. “This song is about a toxic relationship; the kind where you know you should let go but you still hold onto the fantasies and the objects left behind,” she says. “I think most of us have been in that uncomfortable place at least once in our lives.” Listen below.
