With Tantalising Vocals, Catchy Melodies & A Stunning Music Video, Oriana Curls Leaves Us Wanting More With Her Powerful New Masterpiece.
I think we can all relate to the idea of being a 'Soldier Of Love' I certainly know I can, but no one tells the story better than Oriana Curls. Accompanied with a stunning music video, this song shows us both sides of the struggles of love.
With catchy synth progressions, 808s, and vocals that can be heard from space this track has it all. The video takes us on emotional rollercoaster. Almost like an action movie, we follow twists and turns in an epic tale of love and heartbreak.
Hailing from France the young singer/songwriter relocated to the UK ten years ago and has since established herself internationally as a performer in venues such as The Royal Albert Hall, Wembley Stadium, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, The Carlton in Cannes. As well as performing in the Middle East and The Edinburgh festival.
It didn't take long for Oriana to make an Impact as her debut album ‘Because I’m French’ was a 2020 Grammy award contender, which is an achievement most musicians can only dream of. Her song 'Comme des Vieux' was featured in Kylie Jenner's series 'Life of Kylie' on E!, allowing her to make an impact in the US market.
In 2018 and 2019, she was a TV judge on the BBC 1 show ‘All together now’ alongside spice girl Geri Halliwell and host Rob Beckett.
Oriana has recently released her new EP 'Curlsworld', which explores new electronic sounds and leads her towards new musical adventures.
Her remarkable rise continues with 'Soldier Of Love' Produced by Joe Rodwell, and written by Oriana herself. Her vocal ability is really brought out by the Incredible production on the track, and finished off with a powerful and impactful music video.
We were lucky enough to talk to Oriana about her plans for the future and the Inspiration behind her music.
Can you tell us the story behind your new song?
The idea for 'Soldier of love' came to me a few years ago. It's about getting out of a dark mental place, feeling stuck, and trying to find a way out. In the video, I approach both sides of one's personality: one side that seems assured and in control, and the other side that feels vulnerable and imprisoned. The two can completely coexist. I always find that people think or assume that I'm strong and in control when in reality I'm struggling a lot, and I think many artists can relate to this as we always have to show our brighter side to the world, even when we feel the exact opposite deep inside.
Who are some of your biggest Inspirations?
I have so many! I grew up listening to soul, jazz, classical and electronic music, and I'd say that my latest work has been inspired by more recent artists such as Lana Del Rey, Billie Eilish or Dua Lipa. I'm really into electropop artists at the moment such as Grimes or Charlie XCX.
If you could collaborate with any artist who would it be?
That's a tough one! Maybe Calvin Harris as a DJ and Sia as a songwriter? Or a do collab with Rosalia, maybe we could do a cool mixture of French and Spanish!
What's next for you? Do you have any more releases lined up?
I've worked on a few collaborations that will be released soon! Can't say more for now.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Keep on thriving with my projects! I can only go with the flow as there is no point in forcing anything life, so I trust where I will be will be the right place.
Do you have any new shows coming up?
I'm performing regularly at Bulgari this summer, and I'm also part of the monthly 'Dope nights'! I update all my upcoming performances on my website www.orianacurls.com
