Aaradhna Brings Soul Back to the Charts



MEDIA RELEASE: Friday 9 November 2012


Aaradhna Brings Soul Back to the Charts

"I’ll happily lead the Aaradhna chorus and predict Treble & Reverb will reverb around the world."
-Mike Alexander, Sunday Star Times

“The Aaradhna album is solid. Great work from an accomplished soul voice, Treble & Reverb is the truth”
– Aloe Blacc

Hallelujah, Aaradhna’s bringing some soul back into the charts with the lead single off her new album Treble & Reverb – which is out today - claiming the #1 spot in the Radioscope Airplay Top 100.

The ‘metro/retro’ single ‘Wake Up’, is also making its mark in the official NZ singles chart where it’s currently sitting pretty at number 2.

Originally penned as a plea to herself, Aaradhna wrote the song when she realised life was passing her by and that she was ready to get back in the game.

And back she surely is – when her harmonies spill through the speakers in the opening track of Treble & Reverb, you learn that it’s her silky voice over a doo-wop style, along with her newfound attitude, which prove Aaradhna and music “go good together”.

Dripping with soul and sprinkled with sass, Treble & Reverb is Aaradhna’s most definitive album yet. Channeling influences including Amy Winehouse, Ruth Brown, LaVern Baker, Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, and Little Anthony and the Imperials, Aaradhna’s calling on some of the vintage soul’s greats - and judging by her knack for writing hypnotizing harmonies - they seem to be answering.

Currently in talks with international labels, the Kiwi songstress is also set to take on the world.

Treble & Reverb is available in stores and online now and don’t forget, you can also see Aaradhna live as part of the More FM Summer Vineyard Tour over February.

John McBeth: Our World Cup All Blacks

Forty or fifty years ago nobody really had any idea of what the selectors had in mind. There were often several trials, which sometimes featured over 150 players, possibly an inter island match or a final trial, then we listened to the announcement of the team on radio. The players weren't flown into the capital for a parliamentary function... More>>
