Porches, the recording project of New York’s Aaron Maine, drops his new album Pool on February 5 through Domino Records. The record was written and recorded in his Manhattan apartment, and was mixed by Chris Coady (Beach House, Grizzly Bear, Tobias Jesso Jr) in Los Angeles.
Watch the Daniel Brereton-directed visuals for his excellent new single Be Apart below. The track features Frankie Cosmos on backing vocals, who also popped up on Porches’ previous single Hour.
“‘Be Apart’ is sort of about moving to New York City and wanting to belong. It’s about nightlife, about being taken away, losing control, longing for acceptance, and letting go. I imagine the music video portraying some sort of cult or family living in a mansion. The cult/mansion represent both what you might long to be a part of and also the sentiment of longing to be elsewhere, a part of what is outside” – Aaron Maine.
