UNDR ctrl is absolutely thrilled to welcome Third Floor to our eclectic artist roster.
Unguarded with no restraint, the Third Floor mien is an ambient expansion of sonic weightlessness; drawing upon the sincere journey music can lure one on. Lead by Aaron Bannie, a British born and now Sydney based producer, the atmospheric pop signature that governs his artistry coerces his musical story, leaving a bona-fide and unique presence.
Romantically honest, Aaron orientates beats with failure to falter. Captivating alternative British pop intelligence fused with a tinge of an Australian musical heartbeat, an authentic story is pursued. Sharp on the production tip and enhancing a witty take on music, the last few years have seen the infinite nature of Aaron rise amongst the unknown where the independent artistry of Third Floor was born.
2016 welcomes the effervescent deliverance of the ‘Dream State’ EP; a magical work between sonic expression and visual story time, unfolding a scripted collaboration with multi talented writer and director Jonathan Vassallo aka J Motor . Boasting seamless production on both accounts, the wider consciousness is awakened causing quite a stir and deeming the perfect soundtrack to never-ending reverie. From ‘Thinking of You’ throughout the extended four part ‘Dream State’ series, the unique projection of art leaves those eager for the next instalment.
Third Floor presents the first single from his forthcoming debut audio-visual EP, ‘Dream State’. An exciting collaboration with J Motor Film, Bannie will release the four-track EP as an episodic short film, taking each song to larger than life proportions.
As premiered on THUMP, Third Floor shares the first single “Thinking Of You” with episode one, introducing us to Charley Rose, the haunting protagonist in the four-part audio-visual series. Establishing a tale of twisted-love and dark fantasy, we follow Rose’s fight to find love, while the ethereal sounds, layered synths and seamless rhythms of “Thinking Of You” take hold. Donnie Darko meets Black Swan; episode one is a magical first taste into the unfolding story.
With pain-staking perfection and hard work, Bannie is finally ready to reveal the unique project that is ‘Dream State’. As we welcome Third Floor in to our eyes and ears – prepare for cleverly addictive rhythms and flawless production to entice as the wait for episode two now ensues.
