Emerging songwriter Ariane weaves a tale of love gone wrong on new dark-pop single ‘Sweatshirt’. The French-American artist is carving out a name for herself by creating moody, expansive productions. A BANKS-esque bass line fills the track with rhythm, delivering a big groove to an otherwise sparse instrumental. Ariane’s vocal melody climbs to the chorus which opens up into a joyous hook.
“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.”
