Aly & AJ Release EP 'Sanctuary'

Aly & AJ Release EP 'Sanctuary'

Today, Iconic sister duo Aly & AJ release their five-track record Sanctuary. Their newest efforts see the two touch on themes that push the boundaries of pop, moving past break-ups and focusing on stories of identity, self-reflection and social consciousness, tucking their signature flair for romance and heartbreak on a shelf.

Their previous EP, Ten Years, sent Aly and AJ across the country on a sold-out tour, where they reconnected with fans in their favorite setting and, Sanctuary, began to grow.

"Shows are a sanctuary for our fans. We find a lot of peace and healing comes with talking to them while on tour," explains Aly. "Hearing their stories about how they came to our music or how it impacted their life - it really touched us and we wanted to give something back."

The pair have already begun their cross-country tour, making stops in cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Austin, and Seattle before heading overseas. They are teaming up with The Trevor Project by bringing donation bins and awareness booths to every tour date to shine a light on the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ young people.

Dropping alongside their EP is the music video for their latest single "Don't Go Changing." The pair teamed up with Alex Ross Perry again with the video shot in New York to spotlight the contrasts between the two coasts. Alex Ross Perry is the director/writer/producer of Her Smell, the critically acclaimed film starring Elizabeth Moss. Perry is also credited for the sister's "Church" video, a chromatic neo-noir shot and their vampiric "Take Me" video off of their 2017 EP, Ten Years, that concluded a decade long gap in their discography. Perry shot with Kodak's 16mm motion picture film on all three videos.
