Unbreakable and Unfazed; Recording Artist Aaron Night Seeks to Inspire Through His Groundbreaking Release “Through It All”
Ever since he was young, Aaron Night knew that his passion lay in music and performed to anyone in his family who cared to listen including his not so impressed younger brothers but his mom always noticed and decided to nurture his talent by supporting and guiding him, including playing the guitar beside him during those family gatherings as Aaron sang his heart and soul out with voracious passion and showcased genuine love for music which seemed to flow through him like some electric current. Fast forward to the now recording artist going professionally by the name “Aaron Night” who decided to get into music full time by first taking time to learn from the best and gain some experience.
Aaron Night finds himself shattering the noise with his most recent string of releases. Debuting in 2021, “Flares”, penned by famed songwriter Ryan Tedder, quickly climbed Music Week’s UK Pop Charts Top #10 in no time while simultaneously hitting #11 in Germany’s Dance Charts. Topping out big names like Zara Larsson and Jason Derulo, Aaron has begun carving out his mark in the international market.
From this release “Through it all” you’ll get to experience an artist with limitless potential and you wouldn’t be able to differentiate this track from what you have been listening to on the radio. It is equally as magnificent and absorbing if not more! This song was inspired by a genuine narrative about his own experiences throughout the pandemic and how he eventually overcome his anxieties and energy-sucking monsters! This is a story of conquering our darkest fears and never looking back!
“Through it All” has a colorful melody with elegantly textured instruments starting with the acoustic guitar riffs that engage in a call and response motif with his mellifluous male vocals touching on every chord of the human heart. The gist of this track is found where the exuberant and rock-like percussion culminates a jamboree feel but also delivering a gloriously anthemic chorus that is catchy, melodious, and easily memorable.
Many of the modern arrangement and production techniques associated with the alternative pop and rock genre are here and are handled exceptionally well, from the energy building rises to the well-layered guitars bass sounds and the melodiously filtered rhythm to the heartwarming vocals that drive the track qualifying it as a radio-ready and radio-friendly tune that will undoubtedly appeal to the modern audiences.
He has started on a high note and things can only get better from here – “Through it all” is that track we did not know we needed and yet we do especially during these times where all sorts of atrocities are ganging up to try and weigh us down. Without further ado, let’s put our hands together for Aaron Night!
