Aly & AJ’s “Don’t Go Changing” Is a Bop for the Ages

The year is 2019 and Aly & AJ are officially an ever greater force to be reckoned with. At first glance, many would assume that the sister duo is still riding the “Potential Breakup Song” wave, but now that they’re fully grown adults they have way more important things to sing about like fighting for equality, overcoming struggles, seeking redemption, maintaining health relationships, and staying true to yourself.

PAPER Mag Highlights Church

04.24.2019

Aly & AJ Make Redemption Look Incredibly Sexy

Who knew that sinning could look so chic? Aly & AJ seek redemption in a big, empty house filmed with vintage-looking filters in the new video for their hooky single “Church.”

The clip, directed by Alex Ross Perry, showcases the Michalka sisters moving fluidly throughout, donning an array of coordinated, fashion-forward looks. The song’s lyrics “I need a little church” highlight the moments in life where, despite all manner of searching, you can’t find yourself amid nightclub strobe lights, in a lover’s bed, or after the last sip of a bottle. But in the song’s soothing electronic production, Aly & AJ propose that there’s a remedy for all the versions of you that exist. For the video, they embody these multiplicities through fashion, offering a little something for everyone: latex and/or vinyl for the unrepentant sex kitten in you; clean lines and red lips for the business bitch in you; and when you really need to get honest and lay it all bare, there’s nudity.

Church on IndieWire

04.17.2019

Aly & AJ’s video for Church has been spotlighted over at IndieWire:

‘Now that “Her Smell” is in theaters, Alex Ross Perry has moved on to his next musical venture: the video for Aly & AJ’s “Church.” The new single from the sibling duo’s forthcoming album “Sanctuary” marks Perry’s second collaboration with the sisters, the first being the video for 2017’s “Take Me.” Shot on 16mm at the Mayan Revival Samuel-Novarro House in Los Angeles’ Loz Feliz neighborhood, it isn’t the last time Perry will collaborate with Aly & AJ — they’ll next work together on the visuals for an upcoming single from “Sanctuary.” That project will take place in New York to “spotlight the contrasts between the two coasts.”‘

#ChurchVideo @TheFADER

04.16.2019

The Church music video directed by Alex Ross Perry has arrived.

The FADER writes: “Aly & AJ still make damn good pop music. When they returned last year with their first project in over a decade, it felt less like a comeback but rather a full arrival. The same can be said about their new single “Church,” which dropped a few weeks back: the hooks are as undeniably huge as anything the Michalka sisters have offered throughout their career, but the music feels decidedly more opinionated and lived-in.

Perhaps the most seismic shift in the new material comes from the context surrounding it. It goes without saying that we’re living in a totally different world than when “Potential Breakup Song” hit airwaves in 2007. Landmarks are burning, ice caps are melting, hopelessness is in abundance. Faced with a revolving door of hedonistic coping mechanisms, Aly & AJ’s’ proposal is a simple one: in a world that continues to rob us of sacred spaces, maybe we just have to make them for ourselves.

In their gorgeous new video for “Church,” debuting today, that space is the Samuel-Novarro residence, Lloyd Wright’s 1928 art deco masterpiece that’s housed 90 years of Hollywood mystique. They enlisted Her Smell director Alex Ross Perry to capture what he describes as an ‘uneasy feeling of creeping west coast voyeurism.’ “

Take Me Remix by Matthew Dear

10.27.2017

Matthew Dear’s remix of Take Me is available now here.

“Aly & AJ return with the Matthew Dear‘s remix of “Take Me,” their first new track in 10 years. The futuristic sounding piece showcases intriguing harmonic progressions as well as a striking bass line. With nostalgic vocals…, “Take Me” combines the new with the old in an alluring, tasteful style.

Matthew Dear is known for his signature mellow, yet energy infused sound. With tracks such as “Bad Ones” featuring Tegan and Sara, the United States native cultivates an indie electronic collection of pieces that flaunt a new wave of creative production. With his latest remix, Matthew Dear brings his own flavor to the table, a refreshing taste that still maintains a vintage feel.”

Take Me Music Video

09.14.2017

Aly & AJ have delivered the bewitching visuals for the Take Me music video, crafted by visionary director and screenwriter Alex Ross Perry (Listen Up Phillip, Queen of Earth), with cinematography from the talented Sean Price Williams (Good Time). With the streets of Los Angeles as the backdrop, the video features appearances from actresses Amanda Crew (Silicon Valley) and Madeline Zima (Twin Peaks), and actor Josh Pence (La La Land) who fall prey to the musical duo’s blood lust.

The sisters added, “Staged and paced by Alex Ross Perry (director) and Sean Price Williams (cinematographer) in a midcentury home at odds with vampiric life, both pushed the video into the genre territory of our 80’s dreams as funneled through the minds of Chris Horan (stylist) and Elissa Ruminer (hair and makeup) with inspiration and armor from the clothing of Harris Reed.”

Director Alex Ross Perry shares the story behind the visuals for “Take Me”, noting – “When Aly&AJ reached out to me, blind, on Instagram, I assumed there had been some mistake. Nobody I had ever met before could possibly want to work with Sean Price Williams and myself badly enough that they would fly us to Los Angeles and agree with our insane idea to shoot a music video on standard 16mm film. Turns out, this was just a sign of their collaborative nature and the beginning of a process that creatively volleyed back and forth, much like my back and forth flights across the country.”

He continues – “The opportunity to shoot in Los Angeles for the first time, in a wonderful location that I could never dream of having access to (and just up the road from the house where Sharon Tate was murdered) was one I couldn’t imagine passing up. Shooting a vampire themed video is difficult for somebody like myself who ceases to function after eleven p.m. but the enthusiasm and positivity of Aly & AJ motivated the entire crew and resulted in a video full of images I am incredibly proud of.”
