After taking some breathing space from sharing her musical offerings with the world, London based Alt-Soul artist Aruba Red re-emerged with her EP Holy Waters reaching number 7 in the iTunes top 10 RnB / Soul albums chart. Her unique brand of spiritual pop documents the hopeful energy that has come to define her. The intoxicating first visual ‘Goddess Vibes’ was followed up with an intimate portrayal of motherhood with second visual, EP title track ‘Holy Waters’.
The release of the EP led to Aruba signing a global publishing deal with Warner Chappell and headlining an intimate sold-out show at London’s 100 Club. With the Full Flower Moon launching us fully into Spring and new beginnings, Aruba’s single “No Light” premieres with a stunning visual featuring aerial shots of enchanting forests and lakes, linking in with Miss Red’s belief of the importance of reconnecting with nature and the wild woman within.
“No Light” tells the tale of overcoming narcissistic abuse, surviving a toxic relationship and not only making it out but using the experience as a tool for growth and spiritual development. There is indeed no light without the dark and the cosmic sounds transport the listener to an ethereal realm, the beautiful story of survival made all the more poignant with the visuals created by DNR Films depicting the songstress finding her strength in the depths of a bewitching forest. The magic is truly in the air, featuring beautiful piano from the talented Ayanna Witter-Johnson and musicianship from Renell Shaw (Rudimental) and production from Marrik Shearer (Mostack).
“No Light” focusses on looking back, not in bitterness or in anger but with a knowing that often the challenges we face in life can be the making of us. This is my testament to all the survivors, to everyone who has managed to not allow their pain define them. It’s a wild journey and we hold the answers within us, we have to try to reconnect to our own power. Music is my therapy and I hope it will act as a campfire for anyone who needs to feel its warmth.” – Aruba Red
