Some will be surprised to find that ‘Disguises’ is Aiden’s fifth studio album. There’s been a noticeable progression in sound over the years, but whether it’s for the better is debatable. You see, ‘Disguises’ is neither brilliant or dreadful. Aiden’s trademark frantic hooks have been swapped for a heavier sound musically, while sirens and spoken word quotes (including one from The Shining) segue the songs together. Frustratingly only ‘A Portrait Of The Artist’ and ‘Walk Among The Dead’ really stick in your head. It’s never a good sign when side-projects are creating better music than the main band.
We caught up with the Twin Atlantic frontman for his festival challenge at this year's Leeds Festival. For all of our festival #7of30s, head over to this playlist.
