Aria Jay's EP 'Growth' combines soul influenced tunes over R&B beats and hazy, warm synths. She melds electronic synths beautifully in "He said," with echoing raindrop tones over blissful and light chords. The Brooklyn based singer's jazz background can be heard through her interesting, jumping chord progressions.
The most standout element however is her voice.
It's strong and determined, running up and down her wide vocal range, with an incredible, Amy Winehouse tone.
Her vocal ability really conveys the sorrow and struggle surrounding the love she sings of.
