Hailing from Southern California, singer/songwriter/producer Aries, has finally returned from a 2-year hiatus with his brand new song “FOOL’S GOLD.” Aries has gained popularity off of his distinct sound some would call, Anti-Pop, that he has kept consistent in his latest release. The 21-year-old simultaneously dropped a visual for the song that was posted on his YouTube channel that now has more than 430k subscribers.
The music video features the “PONY” singer, as a miner in a cave surrounded by gold and women. I am always fascinated by Aries’ visuals, one of the biggest reasons being the hand-crafted illustrations and magazine-esque graphics that continuously make an appearance throughout all of his music videos. His melodic vocals mixed with his rock-influenced instrumentals, bring a unique sound and play a huge factor in why Aries has been able to cultivate such a large fanbase with such a small discography. I am extremely excited to hear more from Aries and hope this single means another full-length project is in the near future.
