Originally hailing from Indiana, Aela began releasing her music under her moniker in an attempt to create something separate from herself. Aela has an admiration for the mystique, and through a unique blend of rock, industrial, doom and electronica, Aela creates an atmosphere of a dark, twisted fairytale.
Aela many times implements lustful lyrics, booming guitar riffs, dark soundscapes, and funky, retro synths. This combination strikes a chord reminiscent of Nine Inch Nails or Bjork. Aela falls somewhere between the hazy conjunction and temptation of Innocence and Evil.
