Aaron Orbit Is A Cool Drink Of Water With ‘Agua Mala’


Aaron Orbit, from Ventura California, has form for offering interesting music videos, and his latest, for new single, ‘Agua Mala’, is no exception.

In a video that takes him across the desert and into the deepest depths of the ocean, Aaron’s vocals remind us a lot of Brandon Flowers, and the style of song resembles that of the Killers’ front man as well, with optimistic uplifting choruses and slightly menacing verses.

Aaron is now an independent artist, but prior to striking out on his own, he was signed to major labels with his former acts, 8STOPS7 and LE Meu Le Purr. It was a series of sudden and dramatic changes in his personal and professional life that saw him find his true voice, and decide to go it alone.

‘Agua Mala’, which translates to “bad water”, from Spanish, is a highly personal song, with the video showing Aaron in a full suit, wandering aimlessly across a hot desert. This is intercut with shots of Aaron immersed underwater, as well as shots of a drummer.

The video is the perfect accompaniment for the very moving song:

Every secret has a story to tell
Underneath the skin the tremors are felt
Suffocating till it takes control
until the moment that heart explodes

Aaron Orbit can be found online on Twitter, Facebook, Soundcloud, and Bandcamp. You can download ‘Agua Mala’ from iTunes. Check out his official website for more information about Aaron and his upcoming performances.
