Aidan Bissett has released his debut EP, I’m Alright If You’re OK via Capitol Records. The five-track project documents the stages of a troubled relationship with raw immediacy and illuminating perspective, demonstrating his knack for twisting heartbreak into exhilarating songs. Listen to it now below.
“The EP’s title refers to finally realizing that I was letting my mental wellbeing depend way too much on the other person, and not focusing enough on taking care of myself,” explains Aidan Bissett, who has come to realize that his fans are navigating similar issues. “I’ve had so many conversations over the past year where people have told me that my music’s helped them through things like depression and anxiety and relationship problems. It’s really solidified that it’s not just about me putting out songs anymore – it’s about the connection that people have with those songs and doing whatever I can to make that connection as real as possible.”
Made with producers like Captain Cuts (Walk The Moon, Lennon Stella), Andrew Wells (X Ambassadors, Halsey), and COIN frontman Chase Lawrence, I’m Alright If You’re OK expands on the rule-breaking ingenuity the Florida native first revealed in his early work as an entirely DIY bedroom-pop artist. Echoing its vast whirlwind of emotions, the EP endlessly pushes into new and unexpected sonic terrain.
Bissett will join The Greeting Committee on their fall North American tour, which kicks off November 6 at the Aggie Theatre in Fort Collins, CO and includes a November 14 show at the El Rey in Los Angeles, CA. Tickets are available HERE.
