Aish – New Music

The track “Promise Me” is the first single from Aish’s debut album, Mother. The album explores the intricate relationship between mother and child, but also touches on themes such as migration and finding one’s home. It is cinematic, featuring non-traditional instruments and naturally found sounds. The album was produced by acclaimed producer, Beau Sorenson, who previously worked alongside Bob Mould, Death Cab For Cutie and Superchunk. He collaborates with the creative team at Rabbit Hole UK, who have worked with Warner Music and Universal.

Aish is the son of a physicist father and an artist mother. He was born in Moscow during the Soviet Era and grew up in the UK and India. Aish became estranged from his family, when he came out as gay, which drove him to move to the United States in search for a place to thrive as his true self and pursue his art. Aish studied music, with a focus on voice, songwriting and music composition at the London Music School, Berklee College of Music and City College of San Francisco. Aish now calls San Francisco home, where he makes music inspired by the magnificence of the California Pacific Coast.

Aish wrote “Promise Me” to make sense of the difficult separation from his mother, a loss that left him with many unanswered questions. In his debut video, “Promise Me,” Aish collaborates with Philip Rugo, a prominent LA-based visual artist, known for his manipulations of human figurines. The video tells the story of humanity, through Rugo’s stylistically uncanny human forms. “Promise Me” tells the story of a child emerging from his mother into the world. The track was produced by Patrick Brown, acclaimed producer who has worked with Toro y Moi, The Morning Benders and Grimes. Growing up feeling like his questions were unanswered, Aish is on a transformative quest to retrace his past, present his unique narrative and send it out to the world.
