Porches is the moniker for singer/songwriter and producer Aaron Maine. Maine was previously in the bands, Aaron Maine and the Reilly Brothers, which eventually became Spaceghost Cowboys. Maine started Porches music when Spaceghost Cowboys was on hiatus and as his debut EP Summer of Ten, which was released in 2010, started to be well-received, Maine focused more on Porches. His debut album Pool will be released on February 5, 2016 and was written and recorded almost entirely in his Manhattan apartment, and mixed by Chris Coady (Beach House, Grizzly Bear, Tobias Jesso Jr) in Los Angeles. Maine stated, “there was something special about recording this album in my new home. To be surrounded by the city and in my own world at the same time. I quickly became obsessed with the energy around me, and my experience of New York – I was forced to see my music in an entirely different context. This was challenging, but also exciting, when the songs started to sound like a true reflection of what I was feeling in my new surroundings.”
The video for “Be Apart” was recently released and has been On-Repeat at B-Sides. Check it out and scroll down for Porches’ tour dates!
