Aaron is a 22 year-old London born alternative pop artist. Following her well-received debut EP, ‘Letters To Jonny’ and subsequent single ‘Kids’ in 2015, she has established herself as one of the most exciting acts to emerge of last year.
Her first release of 2016, ‘Easy’, is taken from her forthcoming EP 'For You', and signals a departure from the electronic sound with which her listeners are familiar. The new works are inspired by the direction of her live shows and demonstrates her integrating more organic instrumentation into her dreamlike sound. She explains: “Through spending time on the performances for my debut, using live instruments and playing with my band, there was a natural inclination to include texture and tone that I don’t feel you can replicate electronically. I was also listening to a lot of garage bands and guitar based singer-songwriters from the ‘70s onwards so that has definitely contributed to the feel of my new work”.
Her lyricism illustrates a vivid imagination, fuelled by her favourite authors, poets and songwriters: Gabriel García Márquez, Ted Hughes, Todd Rundgren, and Mac DeMarco are among her reference points. Aaron’s work also reflects an eclectic upbringing of jazz, R&B, alternative and garage rock music. When it all merges as one, her distinctive vocals and melodies form a unique wall of sound that feels substantially more than the sum of its parts.
“At once making polished, pristine pop music and yet also striving towards a garage rock sensibility, the London artist has happened upon something unique.”
