    Details

    Aan Aan is a fearless experimental pop band from Portland, Oregon mixing heavily textured guitars with rich vocal harmonies. The band has been active since 2008 self-releasing several CDs and garnering a reputation throughout the Northwest as a progressive force in the independent scene.The band beckons a bevy of comparisons but their sound cannot be pigeonholed. The vocal dexterity of singer Bud Wilson skillfully reaches the octaves of the late Jeff Buckley while maintaining a timbre that's much grittier. Their forthcoming LP "Amor Ad Nauseum" will be the groups first proper release. The work will demonstrate a patience and attention to space not found in much of the new cannon of up and coming artists. Aan will continue to tour through the continental US in 2014.Aan's Portland, Oregon home has been the band's sonic forum since the fall of 2006, when songwriter Bud Wilson first started recording under the bedroom moniker "Amor Ad Nauseum". As the songs tightened and enriched, it was necessary for the outfit to expand in number. Finally in 2008 it was realized and Aan was a three piece, incorporating layers of instrumentation and embracing modern mediums.The trio shares duties on myriad music makers; Texas transplants Reese Lawhon and Mica Rapstien take turns drumming, plucking and picking. Between the swells and low-end synthetic bursts, rich vocal harmonies abound between the boys, queuing likenesses to certain animal- based modern avant-pop groups. Somewhere in this mix of maligned sexual impulse and unrestrained infatuation there is love and vulnerability. The songs speak because the silence says too much.2010 finds Aan on the cusp of their first official release with local artist collective label "Infinite Front", home to releases by some of Portland's finest creative luminaries; Castanets, Dragging an Ox Through Water, Ghost to Falco, Ah Holly Fam'ly, Ohioan and many more to come. It looks to be a busy year, with tours planned throughout the West Coast of the United States, and another release before year's end.
