Aly & AJ - Potential Breakup Song

20 November Critic Jonni 0 Comments

My iTunes played one of their songs today, and it totally reminded me of the days this song was popular on the music channels. It's such a shame they never became a big success, but they've stuck with it and has a new album on its way, so hopefully they have a hit single from that. This song is their biggest hit to date, but it's one most people have forgotten about for now. Yet, it's bound to do well if the girls returned with another hit song. The performance-based video shows sisters Aly & AJ recording and posing for the camera. Pure fun from start to finish.

Aly & AJ, full names Alyson "Aly" Michalka and Amanda Joy "AJ" Michalka, are sisters and were formerly known as 78violet for all of an unreleased full album before they reverted back to Aly & AJ. You may have seen them separately and together in various films and TV series. They were Disney stars, yet I never identified them as part of the group that was about during that time. Now they're no longer a part of Hollywood records, and as I previously mentioned, they have a new album coming out. This song is their biggest hit so far, having managed to hit number 22 on the UK chart. The song was written by Alyson Michalka, Amanda Michalka, Antonina Armato, and Tim James.

The music video was directed by Chris Applebaum. There is not much to this music video, and it is a pure performance piece that the girls manage to rock perfectly, and yet it's not so relatable to the song.

They reminded me of Mary-Kate and Ashley when they first came out, but I think that just came from the fact that they were sisters (not twins) with blonde hair. The connections children make.

There is a few different scenes, one where they're recording the song, another in a yellow-pink filtered room, and then there's the performance with the guitar. The latter scene allows them to go on full-on rock mode, wishing they will collaborate with Orianthi one day, wishes and hopes.

Literally, with nothing more for me to comment on, leaves a lot to the imagination. The song is about break-ups and the girls sing with passion. Their love for each other as sisters is obvious, and it's so heartwarming to see how much they get along. I can't wait to hear new music from this duo.
