Dreampop princess Aaron has released her ‘Letters to Jonny’ EP.
We featured track two from the EP, ‘Strong‘, a while back and caught up with Aaron to find out some more about life and music…
How and why did you start making music?
I started songwriting at 15, not taking it seriously at all. My grandfather is an incredible jazz musician and inspired me to start creating my own music. After leaving school being an artist was the only thing that seemed engaging to me and so I decided to do it.
Describe your sound in three words.
Awesome alternative pop.
Where do you cite your musical influences from?
All over, I grew up on Alt rock and jazz music, artists like TV on the Radio and Miles Davis. My mother was obsessed with early 80s Madonna and Kate Bush and I think that definitely shows in my own work.
There is a lot of other female electronic artists out there. How do you differentiate yourself?
I’m glad you asked that because as an artist I don’t believe I am bound by genre, it’s my writing style that defines me. My next project is far less electronic than ‘Letters to Jonny’.
We love new music at Indietronica. What new music are you listening to?
Alabama Shakes‘s new album ‘Sound & Colour’ I absolutely love! Shura is incredible too, I can’t wait for her album. Also a bit late to the party but I’ve had Mac DeMarco‘s ‘Salad Days’ on repeat like crazy.
What is next for you? Are you planning a tour?
I’m straight back in the studio working on my next project, which will be coming out towards the end of summer ’15. I’ll be touring after that for sure.
