About Band

Fear Called Living (formerly Aradia) is a trip hop group formed in The Bronx, New York.  Their musical style is a very distinctive mixture of electronica, hip hop and new wave, with a strong vocal element and raw storytelling lyrics.

The group was formed in 2005 by keyboardist/producer Menyu and singer/songwriter Desiree L'amour, who then recruited producer/multi-instrumentalist J. Kingz.  L'amour and Kingz had previously fronted two rock bands.  Kingz decided to continue exploring styles that influenced his youth and convey a dark, gritty, down-tempo sound.  Menyu's compositions are melodic, deep and affecting, as they shade an array of color that eloquently flows without boundary.  L'amour's storytelling lyrics are philosophical and often stir shrewd, thought-provoking visual images.

The combination of elements form a whole, richer, more distinct sound than found in most mainstream music today. Their first album, Other Days was released in June of 2007.  Currently, the band is recording material for a 4 song Ep to be followed by their sophomore album in the summer of 2010.  For news, free remix downloads and more go to fearcalledliving.com.
