Aly & AJ Tease New Album With “Symptom Of Your Touch”

If you’re a pop music fan, there’s a good chance you’ve listened to (and loved) at least one Aly & AJ song. If you haven’t, you’re surely missing out on the pop prowess of these two sisters.


Aly & AJ’s Pop Music Reign

Since 2004, Aly & AJ have been a creative force to be reckoned with. Their talent knows no bounds and aging within the industry has only benefited from that. When they shot up onto the entertainment scene as young teens, the sisters were bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. 17 years later, they have that same sparkle in their eyes. 


Their unwavering love for art works hand-in-hand with their immense skill set. From indie rock  and power pop to film scores and remixes, Aly & AJ can do it all. Their latest single, “Symptom Of Your Touch,” proves that good music needs to come from good people. Aly & AJ are good people. Their music is even better.


This new single comes before the release of their upcoming record, which marks their first full-length studio recording in 14 years. It’s titled A Touch of the Beat Gets You Up on Your Feet Gets You Out and Then Into The Sun. After almost a decade and a half, a new, highly-anticipated  LP deserves a title that long. It also plays right into their most recent song, which has a shorter title, but just as much passion backing it.


“Symptom Of Your Touch” is a song for sunsets. There is beauty in it, vivid layers of sound and color, and timeless production. Like all the sisters do, this single has heart. Every listener of “Symptom Of Your Touch” is guaranteed goosebumps – simply from the wave of honesty and love that comes from it. 


Melody is within stellar dance club style beats, which makes for a seminal pop track. Light as air vocals from both sisters matches up wonderfully with their innate ability to harmonize. 


The Power of Musical Siblings

There is little that Aly and AJ Michalka can’t do – as sisters and as individuals. It’s quite possible that being able to sound so delectable together is because of their familial roots. 


Some of their most notable hits, “Potential Breakup Song” and “Like Whoa,” are a decade or more old. They have aged perfectly, though, and remain intact because they are genuine songs made by genuine people. A


Aly & AJ, as early as their Disney Channel days, made vulnerable and relatable music. Whether they were shredding their guitars on stage or dancing around in matching, flowing dresses, it was uniquely their style. Aly & AJ are, and will forever be, a package deal of artistry and creativity, beauty and honesty. 


There have been a slew of sibling duos and family bands that have made it big. The Jonas Brothers, Good Charlotte, HAIM – the list goes on and on. Aly & AJ have something bigger than that, though. They have love for each other above all else and that allows their music to resonate with every single fan year after year. 


“Symptom Of Your Touch” and it’s whirlwind harmonies make this single a fun, love-filled song. How? Because it was made by fun, love-filled people.
