Aly & AJ are on tour this fall supporting Ben Platt, bringing their electrifying set full of heart and SoCal charm across the country and continuing what has already been an incredible year and a half for the indie sister duo.
Earlier this year they completed a successful North American tour in support of their acclaimed latest album ‘a touch of the beat gets you up on your feet gets you out and then into the sun’ which earned Fleetwood Mac comparisons from Wall St Journal and included sold-out shows at Los Angeles’ The Wiltern, New York’s Webster Hall, Chicago’s House Of Blues, and many more. Produced by Yves Rothman (Yves Tumor, Sunflower Bean) and recorded with live instrumentation at the legendary Sunset Sound, the album finds the two singer/songwriters balancing effortless melodies, lush instrumentation and heartachingly relatable lyrics. And somehow they still hold onto the charismatic charms that made them stand out as pop powerhouses in the mid-00s.
Their recent run has also included performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Good Morning America, partnerships with Bobbi Brown cosmetics and Aperol, plus critical acclaim for the album from Vogue (“the feel-good album of the summer”), Vanity Fair (“the sisters continue to break new ground”), The Fader (“Aly & AJ just keep winning”), and Line Of Best Fit (“an exceptional record that rounds off what’s been a triumphant return”).
