Biography View

On his debut album Exit Form, Scarypoolparty shares the contrast between beauty and brutality while effortlessly moving across genres. The music takes the listener on a sonic journey from the opening epic “Black Cross” to the soaring acoustic guitar mastery showcased on the closing “Out Loud”.  Written and produced mainly by Alejandro Aranda (Scarypoolparty) and TJ Routon (Sawyr), Exit Form illuminates his undeniable originality on songs like Millennial Love—a relatable song that delves deep into the psyche of the dominance of social media and smart phones in our society.  Another highlight is “Tonight” written and produced by Aranda and George Lewis Jr (Twin Shadow), a ballad that begins in hushed piano tones before shifting into much darker textures with elegant vocal work. That high-impact contrast also infuses “Cholo Love”, a pop track that merges Sawyr’s warped beats with Scarypoolparty’s sweeping piano work and soulful vocals.

Beginning with the 6 plus minute “Black Cross”, Scarypoolparty brings the listener in with a beautiful intro before heading into heavier territory with layered soundscapes and coming full circle in the outro.  Drawing influence from Nine Inch Nails and Ministry, “DIAMONDS” hits full throttle with industrial tones and intense vocals.  Exit Form begins to veer into electronic territory with “Dance The Night Away” featuring some amazing high-energy synth and production precision layered with Darren King’s rhythm.  “Vampire Shade” and “Beneath The Skin” both feature first class musicianship coupled with incredible melodic classical soundscapes, soaring vocals and pulsing bass from Maxx Diaz.  King’s drumming and Aranda’s synth work highlight “True Religion” before the album begins to sway into the mid tempo burner “Heartstorm”.   “10 Years” is the first song ever written by Aranda, and illuminates his immediate songwriting ability with complex lyrical content about relationships.  The album wraps with the viral hit “Out Loud” with just Aranda and his acoustic guitar showcasing his otherworldly guitar playing and heartfelt vocals. 

 

His influences and eclectic musical palette includes everything from Frank Zappa to The Deftones, and Nick Cave to classical masters such as Chopin. Aranda is self-taught guitar and piano player, developing his unforgettably distinct style over the past few years.  As he expanded his guitar skills, Aranda taught himself music production and began exploring his vocal talents. By the time he was 22, Aranda had begun busking all around LA County and playing backyard parties where the name Scarypoolparty emerged.  After auditioning for American Idol, his video of “Out Loud” became a viral sensation growing to over 15 million views. He continued to showcase original material, amassing a passionate fanbase that now includes over 700k Instagram followers.  Scarypoolparty has performed on the main stages at Lollapalooza (marking his first ever band show), Austin City Limits, and Life Is Beautiful Festival to rave reviews from music critics far and wide including the Chicago Tribune, Ones To Watch, and Grammy.com. He has also been named one of 10 Artists to Watch in 2020 by Ticketmaster UK.

No matter the genre he is drawing from, much of Scarypoolparty’s material comes to life in complete isolation, a deliberate retreat from the noise of everyday life. “I feel most inspired when I’m alone, away from my phone and from everything,” says Aranda.  

A skilled and impassioned performer who puts his heart and soul into every show, Scarypoolparty has already sold out his first-ever acoustic tour and is wrapping up another nearly sold out U.S. 30-city full band headline tour this fall before heading to the UK for 2 debut sold out solo acoustic shows in London.
