Having already earned an impressive reputation around the globe for her anthemic danceable tracks and energetic live performances, the Canadian singer-songwriter AYRIA is bringing her expertly blended beats to fans everywhere this Summer with her upcoming album and Artoffact Records debut, This is my Battle Cry. To celebrate the announcement the first single off of the album “No One Asked You” is out today and available to listen on Bandcamp.
“No One Asked You” is one of the more stompy and angry tracks on this release. It’s a call back to the fun style of my earlier music like “Bad List” or “My Revenge On the World.” Listen to this track and I dare you to try to come at me now. Explicit lyric warning showcasing my potty mouth ;),” explains Jennifer Parkin (Ayria).
Showcasing a slick-more mature sound, This is my Battle Cry features 10 new tracks including the addictively catchy songs “Stranger Danger” and “No One Asked You”. Although the album is a nod to AYRIA’s previous ear-candy laced works, it’s also a reflection on the past few years of experiences, giving the album a darker tone. Inspired by her personal struggles and rage, the album title track “Battle Cry”, and “Why Aren’t You Dead Yet?” spotlight Parkin’s, “tongue in cheek sassy attitude,” showcasing that not everything made with sugar and spice is always as nice as it seems. Infectious, anthemic and harrowingly therapeutic, This is my Battle Cry is one for the ages.
