There is just as much music out in the world as there are different types of food, movies and opinions on whether or not the moon landing was fake, but with all those differences there are plenty of similarities; stepping outside of the box with musical ideas can be a gamble these days but Awolnation seemed to embrace the challenge. Awolnation was the brain child of Aaron Bruno, a young man who has been in prior successful bands yet never tapped into his full potential. Releasing Megalithic Symphony earlier this year, people have been noticing and appreciating his art form which has been classified by some as “Danger Pop”, which makes him laugh.
Welcome to Awolnation. Over the last few months the solo project of Aaron Bruno, formerly of Under the Influence of Giants, has really taken off in the world of alternative rock. Fueled by the hit single “Sail,” Awolnation’s debut record Megalithic Symphony has become one of the summer’s surprise hits. The record goes all over the place in terms of its sound and style, ranging from indie rock to alt rock to electronica to even hip hop beats.
AWOLNATION, new indie/alternative rock band or someone’s high school nickname? Actually both. AWOLNATION is the brand new band/solo project of Aaron Bruno, formerly of the bands Under the Influence of Giants and Hometown Hero. The band’s debut solo record Megalithic Symphony was released back in March and so far has received a lot of recognition, largely thanks to the record’s first single “Sail.”
