With the release of his sophomore album ‘Believe In Me, Who Believes In You’, producer/singer/rapper Aries satiated his rabid fanbase that has grown exponentially over the past few years. His music has garnered over 300 Million streams to date, with the new album showcasing his blend of hip-hop and alternative influences and his signature vocal tone at forefront. Songs like “Fool’s Gold,” “Conversations,” and “Kids on Molly” amongst others, “serves as the losses and the lessons I’ve gone through and learned over the past 2 years,” says Aries. Referencing “Kids on Molly,” Aries explained, “Even when your world is falling apart, we’re still gonna party and have a good time. This song is full of raw energy and feels so childish yet so grown to me at the same time. I had a lot of fun yelling on it too.” The album is his first full body of work since his self-written, self-produced independent debut album ‘Welcome Home’ that was released in 2019. Aries took an unconventional route to build his fanbase, by first making a name for himself on YouTube by putting his self-taught production skills to use by recreating the beats behind popular songs in 2 minutes. The videos gained momentum, while he simultaneously posted his own music videos on the platform, building an avid fanbase of over 430,000 subscribers in the process. Aries also launched his own brand called WUNDERWORLD, featuring his own clothing designs and illustrations.

Aries spoke with B-Sides host Pete Mar about the new album, how he channels his anxieties into his music, live shows and more.
