AJ Mitchell returns with a deliciously dark slice of synth-pop, ahead of his much awaited debut album ‘Skyview’ which is due out later this year.
“When you listen to the album, I want you to feel nostalgic. It really takes me home. At the same time, I want you to know more about who I am. Talking to the camera is unnatural for me. The best way for everybody to understand me is through my songs. I’m still just a kid who lives his life through music. There’s not a single day I don’t think about it or don’t want to run to my guitar, my piano, or my notepad and start writing.”
AJ Mitchell’s new video plays with light while contrasting against a dark and gritty pop/ RnB sound. Another release to grow on an already impressive record of over 100 million streams and 8 million monthly listeners on Spotify.
“The idea behind Down In Flames was sparked when two of my best friends got in a really bad argument and I saw how the situation could’ve ended better if they just communicated how they actually felt. I need to work on this too, it’s maybe something we all have to work on sometimes. So many problems can be solved if we just stop hiding how we really feel.”
