Aidan Bissett take us into epic adventure with debut EP ‘I’m Alright If You’re OK’ via Capitol Records
The five-track project documents the stages of a troubled relationship with raw immediacy and illuminating perspective, demonstrating his knack for twisting heartbreak into exhilarating songs.
Single Tripping Over Air has shot into Spotify’s Viral 50 U.S. chart, entered the Daily Viral charts in countries around the globe, including Australia, Canada, South Africa and Switzerland, and sparked massive growth across Bissett’s social media. He’ll be performing “Tripping Over Air” and “All That I’m Craving” at 5:00 PM PT today as part of the launch of 1824’s Twitch channel, 3point5.
Bissett will join The Greeting Committee on their fall North American tour, which kicks off November 6 at the Aggie Theatre in Fort Collins, CO and includes a November 14 show at the El Rey in Los Angeles, CA. The run follows his previous 2022 tours with Lauv and Claire Rosinkranz.
Echoing its vast whirlwind of emotions, the EP endlessly pushes into new and unexpected sonic terrain. “All That I’m Craving” is fueled by unstoppably bouncy indie-pop grooves. “I Can’t Be Your Friend” brims with woozy synth lines and otherworldly textures while grandiose strings are juxtaposed with frenetic guitar work on “A Song For Her.” The anthemic “Twenty Something” closes out the EP.
Bissett shot videos with director Brooke James (Troye Sivan) for each of the EP’s five tracks. Love sets him spinning in the official video for “All That I’m Craving,” which premiered today. Look for additional visuals to drop in the coming weeks.
Aidan says: “The EP’s title refers to finally realizing that I was letting my mental wellbeing depend way too much on the other person, and not focusing enough on taking care of myself,” “I’ve had so many conversations over the past year where people have told me that my music’s helped them through things like depression and anxiety and relationship problems. It’s really solidified that it’s not just about me putting out songs anymore – it’s about the connection that people have with those songs and doing whatever I can to make that connection as real as possible.”
To date, he’s amassed over 52 million combined global streams, surpassed one million monthly listeners on Spotify and hit one billion views on TikTok across all videos using his music and over 200,000 creations.
The Honey Pop said,“Aidan Bissett is an artist that everyone needs to be paying attention to. We have a feeling this is only the beginning of his genius artistry.” Wonderland concurred, hailing him as “the newcomer we love that you need to know…”
