Trendsetter could not be more excited to be working with indie pop brothers AJR! You probably remember them from their uber-catchy platinum single “I’m Ready” and now their back with another unbelievably catchy summer anthem, “I’m Not Famous!”
AJR got their musical start ten years ago, busking on the streets and in the parks of New York. Raised on the vinyl of the ‘50s and ‘60s, AJR was initially inspired by the likes of The Beach Boys and Simon & Garfunkel, but the sound they’ve created has now been favorably compared to a modern mix of those classic sounds, with flavors of Imagine Dragons, Fun., and even some hip-hop production elements pointing towards Kanye West.
AJR writes, records, and produces all of their music from the living room of their Chelsea apartment. No pop svengali overseeing their work. No studio musicians filling in the blanks. No Max Martin co-write. Simply a DIY pop group with Pro Tools and a $99 microphone.
