Aer
Pop | Wayland MA

Aer's skillful debut album set the bar for the Boston duo's innovative and engaging songs. The album, The Bright Side, revealed two musicians with something to say and a unique way of saying it, earning notable accolades and acclaim. Now, the group's sophomore effort, Aer, reveals an exciting step forward in the evolution of the pair's music.

David von Mering and Carter Schultz formed Aer in Wayland, MA, combining rap, reggae, pop and indie rock aesthetics to create their own brand of music. The duo's first two mixtapes, Water On The Moon and The Reach, were released in 2010 and 2011, and Aer unveiled their debut EP What You Need in late 2011. The EP landed at No. 1 on the iTunes Hip-Hop chart. The Bright Side, followed in July of 2012, earning the No. 1 spot on the iTunes Albums chart and working its way into the Billboard's Top 200. Music from the album has appeared on the NFL Network, an Etnies advertisement featuring Ryan Scheckler and three episodes of MTV's The Real World.

Following the success of The Bright Side, Aer began working on their self-titled sophomore effort in late 2012. David began working on the instrumentation last November and the pair settled in to record the music in February of 2013. The musicians worked primarily in their homes in Boston and spent 10 days working in a rented house in Los Angeles over the summer, all with David at the production helm. The aim was to showcase a broader range of stylistic and tonal adaptability.

"We're taken as a very fun, light, airy, bright band," Carter says. "But we wanted to show our versatility and stray away from that a little bit with this new album. And we did that - it's darker, more hip-hop and rawer. It's definitely got a darker sound to it."

"We wanted to make something that had a little more mystery to it and a little bit more depth," David adds. "We felt that our next album should have the full spectrum sound and subject matter."
