Having teased us this summer with his woon-esque sprawling lament “The Way We Are”, Aiden Grimshaw returns proper with a re-brand to just Aiden and a quick brush-up in image re-styling which is decently clean cut and chiselled.

With studio time spent with Charli XCX, Paloma Faith and Goldfrapp producer Dimitri Tikovoi, Aiden unveils the first work “Satisfy Me” of his forthcoming “Aiden EP”.

It is definitely a bolder Aiden that presides over this new material. On “Satisfy MeAiden literally tormentedly roars with an unquestionably angst ridden resolve at times, but it all fits in with the brooding melody and character of lyrics that further reveal a petulant torch song of love and pain.

Heightened by an additional rap insert by Thaddaeus Tribbett, “Satisfy Me” is every inch a gutsy dynamic, pummelling its hissy torment into our head-spaces in immenseness.
