Aotu is a producer born on the islands and raised in the mountains. He’s the kind of artist whose music you will want to hear when your heart breaks or when you’re celebrating exciting news. It’s the kind of sounds that resonate most in every situation that make this dynamic musician a wild and exciting catch. “Balloon” is his most recent release (Aug 22) featuring the vocals of Will Woodland. The single simply reminds you of the best and worst parts of love and childhood. Facing love and heartbreak of the one who got away, nostalgia and innocence are wrapped up inside the melodies and riffs of this indie-pop song. Aotu (pronounced ow-too) understands what it takes to be a hit and to be mainstream, and yet, how to still be underground chic enough to remain a hidden gem.
“You’re my balloon Too wild to steer”
Together, the pair wrote, composed, sang, produced, and mixed the track we hear above. With chopping synths and pan-pipe harmonies, the song becomes a hopeful breath of fresh air, ending our summer days with the perfect hint of longing. The bubbly undertones and the metallic “oh’s” echo throughout our listening experience as the music that he deems “cinematic club music” does in fact, become a visual and intricate adventure of noises and sounds. His music is naturally-inspired relaying an organic feel via dreamy digital structures. Woodland’s voice than seamlessly whirls through the composition as note and key come together in a perfect marriage of sonic disarray.

Be sure to check out both artists as they hopefully bring us more of their incredible, youthful vibes. I admit, I have had the song on repeat all day, and can’t get enough of it.
