LISTEN NOW: Porches – The House
The House, the third album by Porches aka NY-based dreamy alt-pop fixture Aaron Maine, is a warm and intimate body of work that sees the singer eluding the familiar and finding himself. Crooning longingly against the backdrop of a soft neon synth glow, the record has moments that are utterly danceable, as well as times that veer towards the deeply introspective, leaving you vulnerable and exposed — it’s a trip. With contributions from key musical innovators of the moment, including Dev Hynes, Solange, and Alex G, The House is a cohesive anthology that colorfully displays Maine’s acute self-awareness and uninhibited honesty. We hear you, and we feel you. Thank you for sharing.
