Andrew reviews 'A Virtual Campfire with Aly and AJ'

A Virtual Campfire with Aly and AJ

 

Last Monday my life was changed. I got to be on Zoom with Aly and AJ, true icons of my childhood. The “Virtual Campfire” hosted by in2une Music, was composed of other college radio members like myself adorning background images of a burning campfire. Truthfully, if you had asked me if I believe I would be at a virtual campfire with Aly and AJ a year ago, I don’t know how I would respond. Nevertheless, I happily attended. 

The former Disney stars were promoting their new single, “Listen!!!”, its music video release, and their upcoming album. We watched the video together, three days before its release last thursday, and engaged in conversation with the artists. Although this is not technically a music review, the song is amazing. It's fun, but mature, and reflects the musical growth of the sisters. Likewise, their personal reflections, which were shared with us, prove to me that Aly and AJ are truly redefining their career. I’ll never forget “Potential Breakup Song”. But this single, and as I expect this upcoming album, are certain to shift the people’s perceptions. This was a very unique and intriguing event, and I’m very grateful to have attended.
