21-year old Australian pop singer ASHWARYA’s music is quite like biryani, the rice dish that inspired her latest single of the same name. Her tunes are a slow-cooked medley of flavorful, richly layered elements that will have you rushing back for seconds.
‘BIRYANI’ marked the beginnings of the singer-songwriter’s meteoric rise, set against the backdrop of a global pandemic. It all began back in April when she posted the track to Triple J Unearthed, and it hit the airwaves after the Australian station handpicked it as one of their favourites. The off-beat metaphor for the love song came to the artist while having a plate of her mother’s biryani. “I had a genuine realisation of how much I love it, how when all the right ingredients come together, it’s like no other,” she says.
