Under the influence of The Aces’ new 14-track album

Alternative pop band The Aces have unveiled their sophomore album, Under My Influence, out now via Red Bull Records.

The album is the band at their most vulnerable, exploring themes of love, sexuality, mental health, friendship and more, each with The Aces’ signature flair.

Said the band,

“We began writing ‘Under My Influence’ with one thing in mind: if the vulnerability scared us, we were headed in the right direction and we had to keep going. It’s been a journey of growth, healing, love and above all, honesty. Not only with the world, but with ourselves. ‘Under My Influence’ is a rebellion. Creating this album was an opportunity to take everything we’d ever been taught and question it. An opportunity to choose who we wanted to become, unapologetically and on purpose. These songs are our stories. Thank you for listening.” 

From the opening chords of their irresistible pop-infused single ‘Daydream’, Under My Influence is The Aces at their best yet. Unleashing a steadily maturing confidence, The Aces’ second album showcases the band’s sonic evolution and continued exploration as artists. A complex snapshot of their lives, each track on Under My Influence embraces not only where the band have been, but where they are headed. Whether it’s lamenting on love and loss in a new city on ‘Lost Angeles’, reminiscing their hometown of Provo, Utah on ‘801’, delving into the pressures of social media on ‘My Phone Is Trying To Kill Me’, or exploring gender pronouns in their lyricism for the first time on ‘Kelly’, this album is a bold reflection of the band members’ own experiences, told with thoughtful introspection and universal relatability.
