Los Angeles’ Fluent continues his artistic evolution with his most accessible and emotionally open project yet, the Heartbreak Aaron EP. Born out of the pain of losing someone he loved deeply, the five-track release chronicles every feeling associated with a serious relationship, from the butterflies of the beginning to the bitterness of the end.
While previous projects were more steeped in Flu’s roots as an emcee, he’s opened up musically on here as well. Heartbreak Aaron is another strong step forward for this rising artist, who says he’s always had inklings of R&B and Pop Music in his writing. “I think now we’re in a climate musically where I can showcase this part of my style and bring it to the forefront,” he explains.
And that style is evident throughout the EP, like the on the more club-friendly banger “I Know” featuring Famous Dex and Jirachii Banz, the dance floor-ready “Stuck With You,” and the stirring opening cut “Crazy.” In addition to demonstrating his songwriting chops, “Crazy” reveals so much of the pain Flu went through during the recording process.
“There is so much honesty in ‘Crazy,’” Flu says, adding that he believes listeners will be able to feel his vulnerability in the song. “I think the best way for a person to feel you is for them to be able to relate to a similar situation they’ve gone through. This record pushed me to that point.”
Beyond understanding what Flu went through, listeners will also get an opportunity to hear the beginning of what’s to come from the L.A. artist. He says that this is just the start of an upcoming slate of new music that, if Heartbreak Aaron is any indication, will continue his incredible growth.
Heartbreak Aaron is available through all major digital retailers and streaming platforms through Flu’s own Supreme Regime imprint via EMPIRE.
