Hailing from London-via-New York, cosmic synth-pop talent Ariana and the Rose is making waves both sides of the Atlantic with her cool-girl pop beats. Ariana’s recently released debut EP Retrograde boasts only the finest in dancefloor come-down cuts, glistening with equal parts edge to grace.

Listen to latest track ‘How Does That Make You Feel’ for a fresh portion of Ariana’s wavering falsetto backed by confident R&B-infused electro-pop:

We caught up with Ariana ahead of her show at Moth Club tonight.

If I had to describe my music in 3 words, I’d use…
Honest, Mischievous, synth.

My favourite film ever is…
Sabrina. The original and the remake.

The most famous person I’ve met is…
Paul McCartney. It was totally surreal.

The best venue I’ve played so far is…
I created an immersive event called Light + Space, we transformed a warehouse into a venue with 360 projections. It felt really magical.

The song I hate the most is…
Oh no, don’t ask me to do that!

The worst job I’ve ever had is…
Answering phones at an office. Bored to tears.

If I were in a tribute band it would be a…
ABBA tribute band. Including costume changes.

My favourite word is…
Amuse-bouche. Just say it over and over.

If I had a super power I’d want it to be…
Teleportation. No more planes and you could go to a city for a night and be back home before sunrise.

If I could play a gig anywhere it would be…
Japan, going to Tokyo is on my bucket list.

I think you should listen to…
The Bee Gees, I’ve recently been revisiting their records and feeling really inspired.

If I could see anyone play live it would be…
Christine and the Queens. I’m dying to see her show.

Ariana and the Rose supports Betsy at Moth Club on 15th May.
