Today AJA (Aja Neinstein) returns with her stunning new single ‘Fireflies’.
A dreamy showcase of flawless vocals and cathartic songwriting make for an impressive next move, for the rising 18-year-old.
Written when AJA was working through a difficult time, the track is a reminder to keep your head up and focus on looking ahead. Written in collaboration with Jimmy McGorman and Rob Vallier, the tender ballad adds yet another string to her musical bow. Sharing more, AJA explained: I wrote Fireflies when I was in a pretty dark place and it was really about looking forward to what is next for me and getting away from negativity. Not letting anything stand in the way of me chasing my dreams.
Fireflies is the follow up single to ‘Love At First Song’ which came out back in March. Written as a testament to her love of music, the knock-out single was a certified bop, scooping support from the likes of DORK and Ones To Watch, amassing hundreds of thousands of streams.
Despite only just turning 18-year-old, the Toronto born and bred artist has already made an impact with both music fans and critics. In the short time since she launched, her songwriting has evolved into a strong and empowering language that is complimented by a vocal prowess way beyond her years.
Highlights so far include being coined the iHeartRadio Future Star for her smash single “Red Button,” plus bagging support from array of press outlets including The Line of Best Fit, SPIN, Billboard, LADYGUNN, American Songwriter, Complex, Wonderland, Dork and Flaunt.
Sat on a wealth of chart threatening alt-pop belters, this impressive new artist is certainly one to keep all eyes on.
