Sonnet to Sleep is a band dedicated to beautiful melodies, indie rock and shoegaze style, and honest songwriting. It is the creation of indie artist Aaron Rios. “Affirmative Say Nothing” is a sophomore follow up to his 2009 release. The album has Aaron’s signature vocals that have perfect tone, emotion, and a raw guttural feel. His voice could be compared to David Grohl or even a Broadway male lead. The arrangements that back him up have passion and drive. The guitars are distorted and melancholy. The drums are powerful and intense. Sonnet to Sleep has a unique sound that pulls on many influences. The themes and melodies are sorrowful with a rock edge that keeps the songs moving forward. The album proceeds go to support a good cause; Arms Around the World. Listen and support below:
