The Aces On Music As A Tool To Ease The Pain
The ladies of indie-pop/rock group The Aces may be young, but they have already learned a lot. After graduating high school a few years back, they decided to focus more of their energy on music and, as a result, their identities as musicians. Since then, they have released their debut album, When My Heart Felt Volcanic, and are feeling confident with what they are putting out in the world—their several self-directed music videos included.
Katie Henderson, McKenna Petty and sisters Alisa and Cristal Ramirez sat down with the Recording Academy to tell us a little more about putting out their debut album earlier this year, their latest single, and the importance of their first ever release, "Stuck." They explain how the song was pivotal for their growth as individuals and as a band.
"I love the duality of a very upbeat song, and then you listen to the lyrics and you're like, oh, that’s kinda heartbreaking. You're almost, like, dancing through the pain, and trying to get over it through music," shares Cristal Ramirez.
