Aiden Bradley crafts indie-folk magic on Low-Key/High Strung

There’s something immediately arresting about the music of Aiden Bradley. In a relatively short amount of time, the Brisbane-based artist has developed a sound that feels simultaneously grounded and explorative; it’s rooted in raw folk sounds, but stretches into far broader sonic territories.

Now, with the release of his new EP Low-Key/High Strung, Bradley continues to establish his penchant for crafting wholly immersive gems of sound. If you’re not already listening to this artist, we strongly recommend you change that.

On his new EP Low-Key/High Strung, Brisbane-based artist Aiden Bradley crafts a spellbinding slice of genre-bending magic.

Throughout the new EP, Aiden Bradley weaves together elements of folk, indie-rock, and pop to deliver something uniquely his own. With rich, textured instrumental arrangements and endearing vocal melodies, Low-Key/High Strung is oozing with undeniable musical charm.

The thing that immediately jumps out from the new EP is its impressive list of collaborators. Across its five-track duration, a catalogue of musicians appear, adding new layers to Bradley’s enthralling collection of tunes. With his collaborators, Bradley floats effortlessly between myriad soundscapes, always maintaining a lyrical authenticity.

EP opener Mess Things Up quickly establishes the far-reaching vision of the EP. With guest vocals from Lili Rose Porter, a genre-bending slice of music is created, and we guarantee it’ll leave you feeling completely spell-bound.

From here, Bradley ducks in and out of dreamy arrangements, never losing focus of his textured musical approach. By the time the EP’s closing track Slow Motion reaches its final moments, you’ll be left completely transfixed.

Low-Key/High Strung is the latest in a string of consistently great releases from Aiden Bradley, and judging by the quality of everything we’ve heard so far, I think we can safely expect plenty more great tunes. In the meantime, do yourself a favour and listen to the new EP above.
