Aaron Taos is a Los Angeles/Taos-based, New Haven-bred indie pop artist. Spending his teenage years with aspirations of a professional soccer career, Taos quit the sport halfway through college when music became his full-time obsession. After spending many late nights teaching himself how to produce on Vassar College’s computer equipment, Taos took this passion to Brooklyn after graduation, eventually culminating in his first EP, GUITS. In June 2018, he released his sophomore EP Night Thoughts and spent the summer on tour opening for King Princess. Taos’ hit single “Control” from Birthday Boy appeared in NBA 2K20 and went viral on TikTok during the first few months of quarantine. 2021 saw the release of the breakup album "Closure & Campari,: and early 2022 welcomed the release of the sister album, "Closure & Campari: After Hours." Late 2022 saw the brighter "mr.butterfly" EP documenting Taos's extensive travels over the year. His upcoming LP "juniper" is an organic folk rock dedication to his namesake, Taos, NM. Blending indie influences of Arctic Monkeys and Tame Impala with more modern pop grooves and melodies, Taos’ sound is a fresh approach to the alternative pop music sphere.
