Meet Aaron Taos, the New York resident who lit us up last year with his effervescent single ‘Hands’. He’s opening his 2017 account with ‘Off My Mind’, an alt-pop track that hints at Jai Paul, BiLLLy and Ben Khan. The sweet production is matched by Aaron’s equally impressive vocal, giving us enough catchy melody to stick in our heads whilst not distracting from the song itself.
Hey, tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m Aaron Taos – I’m a 24 year old living in Bushwick, Brooklyn, NYC. I released my first project in late 2015 by the name of GUITS. I mixed and produced the whole thing in my bedroom using mostly guitars and ableton.
How did the new single come about?
The new single came from a collaboration with my producer friends TŌN (http://www.tonlife.com/). I was working with them in Silver Lake, CA over the summer and we started/finished the entire track in one day. I’m actually out here right now with them currently working on a follow up.
Is there more content in the pipeline?
Yes, there’s going to a video coming out for Off My Mind in the next month or too. Mixing/finishing up what may be the followup single at the moment.
What’s on the horizon for you?
Im hanging in LA for the rest of this month and into February writing new tracks. Getting back to NYC is going to be more of the same – figuring out SXSW logistics right now as well.
