If you could imagine Smash Mouth as a Folk Acoustic singer songwriter, you’d get pretty close to imagining the soundscapes created by up and coming artist Aiden Dale. The Watford, UK based artist has a vibrant approach to his timeless style which makes him so iridescently bright in comparison to other acoustic acts out there today.
His latest single Banana’s almost ventures into the Dream Pop arena with his ethereally charming rhythmic sensibility. The same can be said for each of the tracks on Aiden Dale’s 2018 EP ‘Head/Heart’, his wit from his lyricism cleverly flows through his almost Twee vocal style. Yet, I’ve never heard a Twee artist paired with such immersive instrumentals. His ability to fire through chord progressions and create a euphoric Jangle Pop vibe isn’t to be underestimated, and I hope he’ll forgive me for creating a Johnny Marr comparison.
If you’re looking for the perfect track to add to your melodic playlists you can check out Aiden Dale’s debut single Bananas on SoundCloud along with the rest of his 2018 EP Head/Heart.
