In this modern age of global round the clock internet access it’s becoming increasing harder and harder for people to through off the troupes of the past. So it was rather surprising to discover that ex-X Factor contestant Aiden Grimshaw, has released a track that you wouldn’t find being performed anywhere near the rose-tinted world of said show. A track that is dark, brooding and ultimately mature, and artistically complex. With a sense of the likes of Jai Paul, and Ben Kahn all built around a layered and complex synth ridden soundscape. Grimshaw has been working with well-known producers Dan Dare, Violet Skies and MEMEB.

‘Giving It Up’ is out and streaming now.
