Porches share new music, watch the video for 'Country' now

Porches a.k.a. Aaron Maine returns with new song ‘Country’. The song features backing vocals by Dev Hynes and Bryndon Cook.

The accompanying video was co-directed by Maine and Nick Harwood (producer on Blood Orange’s ‘Augustine’ and ‘Sandra’s Smile’) and shot in and around Maine’s childhood stomping grounds in upstate New York. 

Maine wrote this note to accompany the music:

“i am happy to share this new song with you

it's the last song i wrote for my new album

in the context of the record it acts as a departure as well as an arrival

here is a poem i wrote about what the song means”

mini reckoning

Like flopping onto bed after first kiss high school

I left her apartment and made sure to keep the sleep on me all the way home

Rolled down the window  across the bridge

And filled up my lungs

She told me about this saying about breaking the water to get somewhere

and i imagined  what it would be like to swim together

I felt soft and dumb like a country song

Maine has spent the past year working on the follow-up to his 2016 breakthrough record, and Domino debut, Pool.  The new song shared today, ‘Country’, displays the trademark vulnerability of Porches, but shows a maturity and growth – and is a stunning taste of what’s to come from the artist.
