On his debut album Exit Form, Scarypoolparty shares the contrast between beauty and brutality while effortlessly moving across genres. The music takes the listener on a sonic journey from the opening epic "Black Cross" to the soaring acoustic guitar mastery showcased on the closing "Out Loud". Written and produced mainly by Alejandro Aranda(Scarypoolparty) & TJ Routon(Sawyr), Exit Form illuminates his undeniable originality on songs like Millennial Love - a relatable song that delves deep into the psyche of the dominance of social media and smart phones in our society. Another highlight is "Tonight" written and produced by Aranda & George Lewis Jr (Twin Shadow), a ballad that begins in hushed piano tones before shifting into much darker textures with elegant vocal work. That high-impact contrast also infuses "Cholo Love," a pop track that merges Sawyr's warped beats with Scarypoolparty's sweeping piano work and soulful vocals.
His influences & eclectic musical palette includes everything from Frank Zappa to The Deftones, and Nick Cave to classical masters such as Chopin. Aranda is self-taught guitar & piano player, developing his unforgettably distinct style over the past few years. As he expanded his guitar skills, Aranda taught himself music production and began exploring his vocal talents. By the time he was 22, Aranda had begun busking all around LA County and playing backyard parties where the name Scarypoolparty emerged. After auditioning for American Idol, his video of 'Out Loud' became a viral sensation growing to over 15 million views. He continued to showcase original material, amassing a passionate fanbase that now includes over 698k Instagram followers. Scarypoolparty sold out his first-ever acoustic tour and just wrapped up another nearly sold out U.S. 30-city full band headline tour. He's reaching new heights in 2020 with a spring European tour, and multiple festivals lined up.
