THE ALBUM ‘LIBRA’ RELEASES ON JULY 9TH 2021.
THE EIGHT-TRACK ALBUM CAREFULLY TRAILS LISTENERS THROUGH WELL-WORDED BLENDS OF 90s INSPIRED R&B, SOUL AND POP. THE PRODUCTION PAIRS WELL WITH YOUR SWEET AND SOULFUL VOCALS. HOW ARE YOU FEELING HAVING YOUR ALBUM OUT FINALLY? WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE ON YOUR TITLE? WHAT IS YOUR SUN, MOON, AND ASCENDANT SIGNS? WILL THIS BE A THREE PART ALBUM?!?
ARIEL: Damn, that’s a good idea. I think I’ll jot it down if that’s cool with you. I feel very excited about Libra coming out. I’m a Libra sun, Libra moon and Pisces rising. Back when I was listening to the album and trying to come up with a name, I landed on Libra because I realized the songs had a very Libra vibe to them. Without getting too astrology nerd here, Libra is represented by the scales in astrology and the album as a whole explores the pursuit of balancing between themes of isolation/togetherness, selfishness/selflessness, and codependence/autonomy. Libras have a tendency to prioritize their relationships and other peoples’ needs above their own which I can identify with. I set up the tracklist to reflect my own personal balancing act. The first half of the project focuses on relationships and understanding others, while the second half explores self-love and acceptance. The cherry on top is that I had just gotten my birth chart read right as I was working on Libra so I had the perfect voice-over material for the album’s interludes which really brought the astrology theme together. If anyone is looking for a birth chart reading, hit up Ashley (@miss_dulce_astro). She’s the other voice on Libra and an amazing astrologer.
