Aria Rostami - My Bobby Valentine & Black Ring
Last week, I wrote about this beautiful new EP by San Fran resident Aria Rostami on PORTALS. His music is subtle and drifting…mesmerizing even. And if the music wasn’t mesmerizing enough, this new video directed by Matthew Sevilla will surely pull you in completely. The EP is called Peter, and is for free download on Soundcloud.
Here’s what Aria had to say about the EP:
‘Peter’ was written and recorded in memory of my best friend, Shawn. He was the other half of the music project, feie. We had a very abnormal relationship, probably in the same way that most best friends do. “Peter” is my way of trying to explain that relationship. The album is also influenced by videogames I played in my childhood. I hoped to combine a few distinct ideas and feelings I’ve had throughout my life and simplify them into one coherent sound.
