Eclectic Pop artist, Sol, is best known for her intimate approach to music. The evocative qualities within Sol’s style honor her ability to paint a primitive picture, adding nuance to the current landscape of music. Raised in the suburbs of Southern California, Sol radiates the influence of her surroundings; ‘The city is close enough for a kiss, and far enough to lust over…I am not consumed by the culture, ideals, or stigma catalyzed by polluted air, yet I am inspired. I see the magic and wonders of that world, I indulge in them, and I return to my cloud at the top of the hill. It almost feels like a dream.’
‘Mystery’, Sol’s debut single, produced by Los Angeles’ Connor Irias (Auralponic), is representative of the rudimentary foundation of her music. The sultry details of the song fulfill atmospheric slants and ethereal vocals, without deterring from its danceability. ‘There is an enchanting, sometimes nostalgic spirit that I hope to capture in my music. I tell my story as a starry eyed romantic with the profundity of the deepest depths of the earth. I hope to have the ability to take the smallest glimpse of a feeling or moment and amplify it to its all encapsulating potential’, entrusts Sol.
Collaborator on the single, Connor Irias, is the innovator behind the creative undertaking, Auralponic. Connor has met commercial success through network TV AD campaigns (NBC) and touring music festivals (such as Lightning In A Bottle). On the development of his music, he expresses, ‘The Auralponic aesthetic represents a deep appreciation for both advanced technology and organic elements. Thus, I love combining acoustic-sounding (yet huge) drums, jazzy chord progressions, paired with spacey synths, brainstem-massaging bass wubs, nature sounds and more…the music is effectively a re-telling of every sound that has touched me in this life.’ Together, Sol and Auralponic have found a way of weaving their striking styles and sounds to create the mystery that is ‘Mystery’.
