Arily Michele was named after an acronym her parents used in letters to each other: "Always remember I love you" -- a level of sentimentality that is thoughtfully expressed in her songwriting.
Known for her bewitching vocal acrobatics and neo-psychedelic dreampop sound, Arily began writing songs as a child and started producing music at the age of 14 by layering synth loops over programmed drum beats, crafting lyrics to match, and recording them in her bedroom. In 2018, she relocated to Denver and founded the band Viewfinders. Their 2020 single Cheerwine was written by Arily as an homage to her North Carolina roots. The band would go on to release an additional single (Someone New, 2021) and two EPs (Moonlight EP, 2020 and See You Round The Clubs, 2022). In 2021, Arily made her debut as a soloist with a studio album titled Echolalia. The album was preceded by two singles: Ophelia and Persephonic.
Arily has since returned to her original method of production: layering synth tracks over programmed drum beats to craft detuned dreampop melodies. Her sophomore record, a self-produced neo-psychedelic dreampop concept album called Highway Hypnosis, will be released on July 26, 2024.
