In October of last year, pop artist AJA was trying to move on from a toxic relationship. Knowing that she needed to find closure with this part of her life, she released the alt-rock anthem “Better Off Without You,” in an attempt to start fresh. She definitely told this other person off, and in doing so, AJA was able to encourage others going through a similar experience to do the same. In the end, something better and more meaningful awaits, which is what AJA captures on her new single, “Love At First Song.”
With “Love At First Song,” AJA pays tribute to the love she has for music. She explains,
“When we wrote ‘Love At First Song,’ I wasn’t in the mood to write about feeling empowered or writing about being irritated with a boy or girl drama, I just wanted to write about something I loved and this was an easy topic for me. I love how certain songs can make you feel something. It can take you on a journey of emotions. It can make you cry, lift you up when you are sad or make you feel like a badass, even if you weren’t necessarily feeling that way before the music came on.“
We definitely feel the love throughout the song. Over infectious pop melodies, AJA sings about music as if it is another person. Sweetly, she shares, “We’re so perfectly in tune / The way you’re strumming on my heartstrings” and reveals, “Love the way you whisper like a symphony.” When it comes down to it, it was “love at first song,” and anyone out there who has that one special song in their life can surely relate.
