Dream Aria have been around for a bit. If you check their YouTube feeds you may see uploads as early as 2009, and with good feedback too.
There are also Soundclick uploads ( and if you are an online artist who has been around since uploading their tunes on Soundclick, then you have been around) to add to their online presence on multiple platforms.
On Reverbnation where I recently saw them being promoted they are listed as having being independent or Indie artist free from labels. Their video for one of their early tracks did have a professional feel, and a official director/producer was probably commissioned for it.
Dream Aria sounds different instrumentally, melodically, and with regards to song arrangement on different tunes. In terms of era I could liken them to the psychedelic 90s renaissance with Beck, Curve, Alice In Chains to name a few. But then there's a bit of more modern Evanescence type-feel to them too.
Rhythm of now almost starts off like a techno sega game soundtrack from eons ago. With heavy industrial drums in the background. Then the Curve sounding vocals from their lead. And after the first verse we get a heavenly keyboard piano break, then the main bridge. There are warbling electric shoegazing fuzz pedal guitarwork that hark back to 90s primetime TV theme tunes, theres that rush, that franticness of all things nineties juggling everywhere amidst lyrics of 'past, and pain, with everything to gain.' Then the pulsating techno-synth gets to lead vocal-less before the lead singer finally rounds it off aptly.
Dream Aria, put a lot of energy into all tracks, samples and medias they get involved in. They are a very evocative band with a pretty and talented female lead. Listen also to A TALE OF TWO WOLVES:
Where will tracks like RHYTHM OF NOW be in 5 years? You tell me, where do we want these uploads to be? What will their access be driven by? Remember what happened to MYSPACE? Their website doesn't mention anything new, but ah well.
They made some uploads in 2012 on YouTube. I could listen to their tracks on a sunny day if I still had a walkman, walking through Australian Suburbia. They list MUSE as one of their similar sounding artists. Could it be the tremolo build up in songs like GYPSY HEART perhaps?
