It has been a constant journey of musical prowess for the glamorous Californian-born star Ariana Savalas. With one flawless project following the next, the latest bewitching addition supervenes as a dazzling new single, ‘What Do You Wanna Know’, which is scheduled for release on the 17th of June 2022. An operatic showstopper that opens up as an honest reflection of being unsure where life is going, not having everything worked out but that it is okay.
Graced by stunning melismatic vocal melodies, intertwining a feathering velvety tone with roaring rasping power. With its classic rock ballad flair, driving the choruses forward, ‘What Do You Wanna Know’ effortlessly embraces tropes of classic alt-pop. Projected from a real place of sentiment, there is a moving essence of vulnerability that comes along with the lyrics and vocal delivery. The narrator is chained to past memories of hurt, becoming a cage stopping her from flying out and finding her true meaning in life. “How I’m 34, still searching for the meaning | Friends are moving on I’m stuck in stone” “Still I’m terrified | these wings are too broken to fly”
