Carter Reeves is finally being honest with his music, coming back strong after his EP 'II', with massive record 'These Days', which showcases the talents of the RIAA Certified gold-record writer.
'These Days' radiates the sunshine we all are currently in need of after a year which hasn't been the best. Effortlessly swirling over a surf pop beat, Carter weighs up the tougher times of life, all with a smile on his face.
Bouncy beats and energetic vocals show off Carter's signature sound against a backdrop of playful and flavourful instrumentation. With a cool new take on indie-pop music, the feel-good and care free vibe of the track are perfectly visualised with the official lyric video.
Reeves has always thought of music more as a mood-lifter than a competitive discipline. Raised in Massachusetts, he grew up with the sounds of Hall & Oates and Fleetwood Mac with his parents, jamming in the car and finding old CD's and records. He began playing in a band with high-school friends, playing a few gigs and then a few more, and Aer was born. He toured with the band straight out of high school - living on his own longer than most other 23 year olds.
As he toured the country with Aer, fans kept coming up to him to tell him how much their music had helped them through dark times and he realised that music that helps people escape their problems is just as important as music that helps people understand themselves better.
Now, kicking off his career as a solo artist, he is proving that he is a certain one to watch for 2021.
'These Days' is out now.
