Porches is the project of singer-songwriter and nascent producer Aaron Maine, whose forthcoming album Pool on new label home Domino marks a major step forward for the New York artist. The LP — due out February 5 was written and recorded almost entirely in his Manhattan apartment, and mixed by Chris Coady (Beach House, Grizzly Bear, Tobias Jesso Jr.) in LA. Although Maine is avowedly drawn to the melancholic experiences in life, he also believes in finding the beauty in them. “I want people to feel dark, beautiful and strong when they hear this new record,” he says, “I want them to fall in love.”
That’s easy to do with his standout track “Hour,” a stunning synth-driven song with haunting harmonies supplied by his longtime collaborator and girlfriend, Greta Kline aka Frankie Cosmos.
Porches will be embarking on an extensive 2016 North American tour, starting March 9 in our very own Washington, DC. See full tour schedule below.
