Aan Premieres “Bubble Bath Bop”, LP Out Today

Aan Premieres "Bubble Bath Bop", debut LP Amor Ad Nauseum OUT TODAY on Party Damage. Aan have announced additional live dates including Treefort Music Fest.

Aan is an experimental pop band from Portland, Oregon, mixing richly textured guitars and acerbic lyrics with sugary three-part harmonies and sprawling soundscapes. Aan began as a once bedroom pop project of freakish folk balladry, but as of late, its more straightforward side has given way to deeper sonic explorations of more subliminal (and occasionally animalistic) territory.

Aan tours and performs as a four piece, often turning versions of their recordings upside down. Frontman Bud Wilson reaches octaves of the late Jeff Buckley, while maintaining a grittier timbre. The rest of the band follows suit by matching Wilson’s caterwaul with cooing harmonies and a measured rhythmic pulse.

The band’s debut record, Amor Ad Nauseum, will be released on Portland imprint Party Damage on February 4. Recorded over two years in various studios and a cabin on the Oregon coast, the album explores themes of the devotion, desire, complacency, loneliness, and desperation. Though the locations vary, a thick sonic thread runs track to track through the release’s nine songs.
