Aruba Red: Beautiful Little Monster

I first saw Aruba Red perform around a year ago at infamous live-music night Milly’s World at The Monarch in Camden. I had actually gone to see peppergrain favourites The Stow when a young girl took the stage; unassuming with a soft voice, she seemed shy, but when she took the mic, that all fell away. Her voice was powerful and haunting, and she had all eyes glued to her throughout her set.

Fast forward a year and the stunning ‘rebel soul’ singer has had a very exciting and busy time of late. From supporting Maverick Sabre on his Lonely Are The Brave tour alongside Ms Dynamite, to collaborating with the likes of Nitin Sawney and Jah Cure, Aruba has also managed to find the time to record her debut EP, Demos In Disguise which will be released at the end of the month. In anticipation of the EP’s release, Aruba has been making tracks available for free download in the last couple of weeks, and today she has released infectious electro track, Little Monster, which joins the dubstep influenced track Never Die and the acoustic video We’re Gonna Make It in the promotional giveaway.

If you like your music soulful, your singers beautiful and your itunes  playlist to look as cutting edge as possible, don’t hesitate to download Aruba’s music here and fall in love with the girl named after a pirate, just like we did.

Aruba Red’s debut EP, Demos In Disguise is released on the 26th March. Let us know what you think of her music in the comments.
