The Temper Trap’s Jonny Aherne (Shacks & Palaces) Premieres New Song & Video

The Temper Trap‘s Jonny Aherne has released the second single from his new solo project Shacks & Palaces on Liberation Records (Vance Joy, Gordi, Julia Jacklin). The timely tune — “Alone Together” — comes accompanied by an eccentric music video shot during quarantine with Brooklyn artists Amanda and Steve Carmona. Jonny says of the experience “We were all needing to do something creative. There were a ton of moving pieces and a lot of thought required to navigate them, but Amanda and Steve managed to make it work with just the three of us in the room. I love what they made.”

The Australian-born, Brooklyn-based artist creates upbeat, folk-informed indie pop, sparkling with likenesses to eclectic icons from Modest Mouse to Beach Boys, Dr. Dog to Hamilton Leithauser. The music ranges from infectious to truly exaltant, a blissful blend of bouncing melodies, boomerang hooks and colorful production. Aherne’s voice —  a jubilant, stony sort of roar — is recognizable from his contributions to the mid-aughts sensation, but here rings absolutely reckless with spirit. Shacks & Palaces will continue to release music through 2020 on Liberation Records
