Aries is the solo electronic project of Isabel Fernandez, known as a composer and recording artist in band Charades, touring background vocalist for Delorean, as well as for her singing on Cartoon Network’s "Adventure Time". Aries' music is densely melodic, like echoes of the west coast in the 1960s coming through the Spanish radio waves. Amidst all the synthesizers, drum machines, buzzes and whirrs, the most prominent, playful, melancholy, important piece pasting everything together is Isabel's voice, light and dancing in circles around every song. Her album "Adieu or Die" released by K Records is the first record sung in Spanish under Calvin Johnson's seminal label and a unique excursion into electronic: pop full of shiny harmonies, explosive beats and shimmering sounds. She's currently finishing her fourth LP, that will be out on La Castanya March 2019.
