Aisles have been generating excitement among the prog rock community for a few years now, but their current album ‘Hawaii’ has seen the Chilean band gaining more press than ever. Given the level of musicianship and complexities found within the album, it’s hardly surprising.
A world away from the usual Genesis and Yes wannabes, Aisles genuinely absorb all kinds of influences into their work. The album has been promoted through a series of live videos already, but they’ve just unleashed a reasonably lengthy clip for ‘Club Hawaii’, which you can watch in full below.
Regarding the song and the studio clip, guitarist Germán Vergara. had this to say: “We knew that ‘Club Hawaii’ could not be left out of this live series. It’s a very collective effort in which we incorporated elements from electronic and latin music, pop, jazz, and even metal, so as to transport the listener to the future in which the concept of the album takes place. We use more distortion, sound heavier than usual, and Sebastián recites a heart wrenching poem in the darkest section of the song. Personally it’s my favorite on the “Hawaii” album and I’m very proud of my lyrics. When playing it live I get goosebumps every time we reach the part :”Turn my soul into flesh and soil and blood and waves…”
