Singer-songwriter Aris delivers “a storm of emotion, desire, passion” on his new album “Pulse”, writes entertainment blogger Tommy Geraci. The Brooklyn native has tapped into his upbringing, influenced by the city’s melting pot of musical sounds as the son of an Irish belly-dancing mother and Greek immigrant father. “Pulse” is a hearty collection of dance tracks, blended with rock, soul and world sounds. The sound “isn’t just an all-out, face-to-the-floor adrenaline boost, there’s a seductive element that gives it another dimension. It’s this duality that really shines through above all: not quite EDM, not quite Pop, and not quite Rock, but a perfect blend of all of these styles coming together to create something new entirely.” writes Evan Morgan of Poet & Pariah.
“Pulse” was successfully crowd-funded via Kickstarter, with the first single “Reborn” debuting in the fall of 2015. “Reborn” “hits you in all the right spots” writes Phil King of Audiofuzz. The album is now available on iTunes and other digital retailers worldwide. The collection includes a collaboration with Grammy winner Paula Cole on the album’s thumping opening track “Love (Thank You)”.
Aris and his music have been featured in fashion campaigns for Project Runway winner Irina Shabayeva and on dance floors at venues such as the legendary Webster Hall, the Bitter End and Santos Party House. Jim Fusilli of The Wall Street Journal describes Aris‘ music as “rock with big lyrical themes” and offers comparisons to singer Peter Gabriel. While Aris has also drawn comparisons to Kurt Cobain, Chris Cornell and U2, his sound is definitely unique. “Clubland’s newest rocker combines a punk sensibility with electronic dance to create a unique grunge house sound all his own.” writes Nashville’s “Inside OUT”.
Aris is currently working on the deluxe edition of “Pulse” which will include several new tracks and remixes. He is also working on the video for his new single “The Music” debuting August 2017, and will play with his band at The Delancey in NYC Friday September 15th at 8pm.
