Up-and-coming independent artist ARIA has released his newest track, “Broken Hearted”, and it is definitely a relatable one.

The song was produced by Boston & Pat, who are fresh off co-producing MGK’s “Die in California” and co-writing Bazzi’s Top 40 radio hit, “I Like That”.

ARIA describes heartbreak in dealing with someone who has taken things away from him, both physically and emotionally. No matter how hard he tries, it seems like this person keeps finding ways to enter his life again and again. 

The beginning builds up to strong guitar strums and the artist’s gritty vocals, reminiscent of punk pop era bands like Blink 182 and Sum 41, while at the same time adding his own modern edge. The backing vocals also add texture to the track.Upbeat verses lead into a firm chorus with an addicting beat you will surely catch your head bopping along to.

ARIA relatably sings about his distress that many of us have faced: 

“Make it hard to dream when you get no sleep, Maybe I feel better when I’m lonely, when she say she love me, I get cold feet… Maybe it’s cuz I’m so Broken Hearted”.  

With this song, listeners might feel less alone after getting their heart broken, since ARIA is able to tap into universal human connections.
