“I’m chasing every dream where you cannot follow. Why won’t you leave me where I can wield sorrow?”
Genre-defying symphonic metal band, Anaria, are back with their signature sound on their new single and video for “Golden Crown”. The New England based group combines modern rock, cinematic scoring, and pop arrangements that has brought them international recognition and a loyal following.
Listen/Watch “Golden Crown” now:
“The song is about keeping up with the impossible standards of others,” says front woman Jessica Jackson-Salvucci. “We tend to forget in the creation of art, in our observance of those who create art, and in the presence of those we hold in high esteem that we are all flawed and prone to falling.”
She goes on to explain that “Golden Crown” is about wanting to break free of being held to standards of perfection, left to pursue your dreams without any preconceived notions of who we should be. People do not want or need to be placed on a pedestal.
Anaria began its life in 2011 as a symphonic metal band in the vein of Nightwish under the project name Evince Ethos. They changed the name to Anaria in 2014 and the trio has been hard at work in the studio, building a sound and style which defies boundaries and takes the listener on a fantastical experience rooted in human emotion. They recently added Tony Martinez who will not only be playing drums for live shows, but will be actively involved in the writing process for their next releases.
Anaria have shared the stage with a wide array of national acts such as Lacuna Coil, Flyleaf, John 5, and Powerman 5000. After operating as a three-piece studio project for a few years, releasing an EP in 2017, “Invocation” and a full-length studio album in 2020, “Exile,” they are getting ready to return to the live circuit by 2022.
