Cardiff based post-rock band ' AARONSON'  today release their brand new single   'SHIPWRECKS'  via  Dirty Carrot Records.

Taken from last year's acclaimed debut album  'The Great Swells That Carry Us Will Pull Us Under'  which was a sonic marvel filled with beautifully arranged ambient post-rock and grabbed the attention of numerous corners of the music press and Radio  including  Adam Walton BBC Radio Wales A Closer Listen Where The Music Meets Buzz Magazine Destroy Exist, Amplify The Noise, Ear To The Ground Music,  and many more.
SHIPWRECKS  is the final release from  AARONSON’s  2023 album ' The Great Swells That Carry Us Will Pull Us Under'  and charts the turbulent midwaters of the record. It has become a staple in  AARONSON’s  live set, bringing unique time signatures and textures to  AARONSON’s  ethereal, cavernous sound.
"A writhing, haunting introduction that lurches unsteadily underfoot, and grows confidently as the song progresses into a sweeping, euphoric midsection."
Strings and guitars meld into one as waves of melody intertwine before the band finish with a trademark crescendo; guitar motif's that loop and build as they blossom into a wave of reverb-drenched layers thatenvelop the listener, while the drum patterns become increasingly frenetic and thunderoustowards the track’s breathless end.

AARONSON  are a post rock band from South Wales, whose towering layers of melody and epic crescendos have seen them share a stage with  NORDIC GIANTS COLDBONES A-TOTA-SO  and  FALSE HOPE FOR THE SAVAGE , finished runners up at The Big Gig Wales 2020, be nominated for a Cardiff Music Award and release their cinematic EP  'YOU ARE NOT A STRANGER HERE'.
