In October, Aaron Maine aka Porches released his fifth studio album, the direct and punchy All Day Gentle Hold !. Praised by Pitchfork as “some of Aaron Maine’s most succinct and enjoyable songwriting” and The FADER who called it “insanely catchy,” All Day Gentle Hold ! is one of Maine’s most critically lauded works to date.
To wrap up the year, Maine returns today with a surreal and stark cover of radio staple “Adore You” by Harry Styles.
Maine on covering “Adore You”: “I thought it would be interesting to strip down ‘Adore You’, this huge pop song, and see what happened. I feel like I was really able to get lost in it and create this kind of eerier and darker version.”
Last week, Maine spoke with collaborator and fellow musician Remi Wolf for Interview Magazine. He also recently guested on the deep dive fashion newsletter Blackbird Spyplane and the “bi-coastal elite podcast” How Long Gone.
In March of next year, Porches will kick off a month of North American and European touring including a date at London’s Lafayette in May. Tickets are available here.
