With a unique take on ambient synth-pop, Aron tells stories of vulnerability and self-reflection.

If you had to describe your music/style in a sentence, what would you say?
Sparklingly moody synth-pop.

Have you always wanted to create music? How did you get into it?
As a kid I used to run around the garden singing made-up songs about pirates, thieves, summer and everything else a little girl at the age of three could dream of. Nobody actually understood what I was singing about, but they were very kind and applauded me anyway.

Can you pinpoint a live gig or a piece of music that initially inspired you?
The first time I saw the music video and heard A Happy Place by Katie Melua was special. I was 13, my eyes were glued to the screen, and my ears were hooked. It’s strange, yet so beautiful and hopeful. I loved it.

Do you have a favourite song or piece of music to perform? What does it say about you?
My favourite song to perform live is Cold Baby, which will be out soon. It’s about a young girl that feels like everyone misunderstands and misinterprets her for the worse, even though her intentions are good. It’s upbeat and fresh.

What do you think is the overriding influence on your songwriting: other art, emotions, current affairs – or a mixture of all of these?
Pop culture. I love politics, fashion, comics, movies, you name it. Sometimes it feels like I’m stuck in a ‘coming of age’ movie, and I can’t stop writing about it.

If you could support any artist in the future, who would it be?
Lorde has a special place in my heart, and I would absolutely love to support my Scandi queen Robyn. Did I forget to mention Björk?

Do you have a favourite venue you’ve performed in? If so, what makes it special?
BITCH Palace, an amazing music and art collective that highlights young female artists in the region, invited me to play at Phase One. That was my first proper gig in the UK. I remember being super nervous, but it was so much fun.

Why is music important to you?
It’s my way of communicating my views and opinons to others.

What’s Wrong is out now.
