Producer turned artist aldn is back with “Ignorance Is Bliss,” a new offering from his upcoming EP, Good Grief.
The catchy alt-rock infused single is fit for the warmer weather and an instant earworm. The song came with a visualizer which is a DIY affair of aldn and friends between Virginia, DC, and his new adoptive hometown of New York, NY.
“Ignorace Is Bliss” is a different style from the hyperpop genre-shaper, showing a more well rounded artist whose sound and production style continues to elevate with each new release. aldn’s EP Good Grief will be released this spring.
The track follows another new single from the project, “sink.” Released alongside a moody music video, “sink” was written and produced by the songwriter alongside Nick Sylverster.
The song is a glimpse of aldn’s continued experimentation with the hyperpop genre while playing homage to the many musical influences from his childhood.
Speaking on the song and upcoming EP, aldn says, “’sink’ is about wanting to fall in love with someone but no matter how hard I try, I just can’t sink into love. This is the first single off my upcoming EP Good Grief and the production leans into a style I’ve been exploring such as using more live instruments.”
Fresh off his national tour supporting Glaive alongside midwxst, aldn also recently announced two brand new spot dates when fans can catch the 20 year-old producer/artist live in action. Tickets are now available for his show on May 10 at the Moroccan Lounge in Los Angeles, CA as well as on May 12 at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn, NY.
Twenty year old aldn has been prolific in the hyperpop community for his production skills, but it wasn’t until he started laying his own vocals to the self-produced beats that things really took off for the Reston, VA artist.
