LO-FI ARTIST AESTHETIC SOUNDS ANNOUNCES NEW LP ‘MOOD BOARDS’
December 2, 2022 BY Jason Currell
Today, Aesthetic Sounds announces their second album Mood Boards, following up their self-titled debut LP released in April (HERE). The Aesthetic Sounds project focuses on vibe-heavy beats and has already earned nearly a million usages on TikTok.
“I use mood boards a lot when I’m creating a visual arts project,” explains Aesthetic Sounds about the new album, “and I thought it would be a fun idea to base an album off of what some of my mood boards would ‘sound’ like. I was also inspired by a lot of the TikTok/IG videos that people use my music for, such as painting videos, short daily vlogs, and fun tutorials. The interplay between visuals, experience, and music has always been interesting to me, and I think instrumentals work especially well for that.”
Today, Aesthetic Sounds shares ‘Rainy Days,’ the fourth single from Mood Boards. Second single ‘Falling Asleep’ (HERE) was added to Spotify’s lofi + chill editorial playlist and third single ‘Learning to Paint’ (HERE) scored placements on QUB Musique’s ACCUEIL & ÉLECTRO playlists.
“A very simple, straightforward lofi beat,” the artist says of ‘Rainy Days,’ “with a jazzy progression and smooth baseline. I really like the simplicity and minimalism with this track, since I’m usually tempted to add dozens of layers and fill out the whole sphere of sound. I imagine this playing on a rainy day as I walk outside with an umbrella or stare out the window.”
