Fuse a little pop-rock ambiance with a flicker of European passion and a clear-cut skill for great songwriting, and you what get, if you’re lucky, is a song just like Drifting.
Aratrea have found a style of their own in the modern music world. Characterful vocals and a unique, unpredictable melody feel mildly reminiscent of the likes of New Radicals, fusing in an unorthodox fashion with cascading electronic synths and contrasting dashes of rock and roll grit.

The songwriting is something else, this album presents hit after hit, and always beautifully performed. Whether the moment is high energy, set to get you dancing, or mellow and reflective of personal, intimate issues, Jo Potter’s voice is striking; perfectly expressive and naturally connected to the stories at hand.
