Fans of the emo-rock-rapper lil aaron are hitting repeat on his newest track, “QUIT ft. Travis Barker” which was released earlier today, garnering a coveted spot on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist. This is the first single from his upcoming EP, ROCK$TAR FAMOUS, due out May 31, 2018. The accompanying music video, featuring a cameo from Travis Barker (Blink-182), who also is featured on the track, gives a visual of the story so many people know too well – loving someone who you know is wrong, but being unable to quit those feelings. Check it out, here.
This first single from the upcoming EP is a perfect example of the balance that lil aaron is able to create between the rock and rap worlds. On that note, Aaron shared “This was one of the first records I wrote during a trip to Hawaii and is the most heavily Pop Rock influence song on the project. It was just one of those songs that even on the first time listening to it, to me it felt like I had heard it a million times… so naturally I had to get Travis on it!”
Aaron not only delivers a unique sound in a sometimes other-wise formulaic music scene, but also embraces his own grunge-goth style with 100% confidence. He is able to blend the internet music discovery scene with a mainstream audience while collaborating with artists and creators from vastly different genres. Transitioning from a songwriter to performer, lil aaron’s first EP, GLOING PAIN$ was released in 2016 and he has since shared the stage with artists like Blackbear, Kim Petras, smrtdeath and more. With the release of ROCK$TAR FAMOUS later this month, 2018 is set to be the year of toxic green.
