Jonny Dylan Hughes Releases New Album as JONNY
Listen to 'Set Your Aim'
Published Oct 06, 2021Busy Edmonton-based beatmaker Jonny Dylan Hughes released an album with his project BRANCHES early this year, and now he's released another, this time simply as JONNY. Set Your Aim is out now on Bandcamp, with a full digital release to follow.
Set Your Aim focuses on the synthpop side of the musician's output (as opposed to the IDM-tinged electronic music of his BRANCHES work). The 12 tracks combine jittery, tightly wound beats with twinkling sci-fi tones and effects-warped vocals, making for an intriguing combination of anxious and calming textures. The recent single "Devastation" appears here.
The album was self-recorded at home. Despite Hughes' recent material as BRANCHES, it's been 10 years since his last pop album as Jonny Dylan Hughes.
