Aloud’s two previous albums—Exile and Fan The Fury—are now available on Spotify!
Released under the Lemon Merchant Records label in 2010 and 2008, respectively, the two albums are a study in contrasts and together solidified the band’s reputation for versatility.
“…Powerful enough to blow the doors down, yet accurate enough to blow just the right doors down.”
Fan The Fury was released in 2008, written from the perspective of early-twenty-somethings living under the cloud of post-9/11 America.
“Things happening in the world mattered greatly in a more real way,” says Jen de la Osa, “and we had to write about them.”
“Acoustic piano and horns cast deep overtones over the traditional rock instruments and lend the songs a weight altogether new to the band… this much of a departure in the studio produced such a rich and interesting result…”
After the departure of Aloud’s original lineup later that year, Jen and Henry regrouped with producer Daniel Nicholas Daskivich—and, later, Charles Murphy—to craft the more deliberate and ornate Exile.
“We started working on Exile wondering if Aloud would even be around for another week, another month,” Henry Beguiristain said, “but we came out of it feeling untouchable. It was the most confident we’d ever felt as a creative force to that point.”
Aloud’s latest release, It’s Got To Be Now, is also available for listening on Spotify.
