A summer self-care anthem, 'Been There' is the first of many offerings Viscose has in store for 2021.
Irish electro-pop artist Viscose (Aaron Cumiskey) has released a brand new banger, stemming from the act's love of dance, house and LGBTQ culture.
Drawing inspiration from the likes of Lady Gaga, Kylie Minogue and Dagny while colliding it with sophisticated sultry synth sounds, Viscose's music will lead its listeners straight to the dancefloor.
As a skilled producer, Viscose has produced various successful songs for other artists; Cat ('Slipping'), Mack Johan ('Encore') and Apollo Monroe ('Soda Pop').
2019 saw the release of singles 'Cry, I Walk' and 'Lost & Found', which caught the eye of the industry.
Since taking the last 12 months out to refine his production skills, collaborate and create magic, Viscose is set for a jam packed year full of exciting releases, visuals and projects. Viscose's devotion to electronic dance music has shaped him into the eclectic, fashion forward visionary that he is today.
"'Been There' is fully written and produced by me," Aaron Cumiskey tells Hot Press. "I started working on the song as soon as Ireland went into lockdown, the original song file was called ‘lockdown.flp’ when I made the beat and ideas of the production. I messed around with samples and through that process, ‘Been There’ was born. Afterwards, I wrote the song within 15 minutes."
"Due to the pandemic, the release was pushed back 10 months where in the meantime, I brought the song to producer Steve James, who has worked on tracks for Justin Bieber, Martin Garrix and Little Mix, after he added some finishing touches to the track’s production, giving it a whole new life," Aaron adds.
The track was then released through James' label, Butterbeats.
"Lyrically, ‘Been There’ is an anthem of self care and a tribute to accepting myself as an LGBT pop artist while blending my love for fashion and pop culture with modern house music," Aaron continues.
"It’s a reminder to cherish and care for yourself, boundaries are okay! It’s the first of many exciting projects to come from me this year as I connect with my audience of pop lovers."
"There's something about expressing a certain feeling not only through words but actually through the texture and format of instrumentation. Dance music doesn't always have to have a happy story behind it."
