Irish singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer aimée is no stranger to euphonic etherealism; with her latest single, Poison, she reached the pinnacle of dreamy, decadent-with-soul art-pop. Like a sonic intravenous shot of intoxication, the single unravels through complex time signatures the choral consolation of her glassy vocal lines and a sense of quiescence which allows the track to deliver all-consuming catharsis.
After receiving plaudits from BBC Introducing, YEO Magazine, and airplay from Northern Ireland’s biggest radio station, aimée has been making major strides with her beguilingly pure sound that remains untarnished by the serious accolades. There’s a real sense that there’s no room for ego in her explorations of the beauty of life and the ache of heartbreak.
Following a string of sold-out shows at some of the most iconic venues in Dublin and Belfast, the songstress has relocated to London to work alongside some of the country’s top producers on her forthcoming singles and form her six-piece band, which is set to take her live performances to the next level.
