Van Alden Releases Sophomore EP, “You’re Not Who You Use to Be”

Van Alden, Paul Abrahamian’s music project, just released their sophomore EP, “You’re Not Who You Used to Be,” as a follow up to last year’s self-titled EP.

The four-track EP takes listeners on a journey of self-reflection. It still follows the pop-noir sound with heavy bass and electronic sound but also filled with raw emotion and relatable lyrics.

“Stay” the EP’s first single tells the story of a tug-of-war between wanting to stay in a relationship and personal self-growth, which is a theme throughout the EP.

Aside from “Stay,” the EP features the tracks “Foolish,” “Forever” and “XO.”

Abrahamian’s voice is out of this world and keeps you hooked from the first verse. He has come a long way from playing the “villain” on CBS’s “Big Brother.”

It still follows their black and white theme, which can be seen as two sides to every story and Abrahamian’s aesthetic for life.

They are planning to announce tour dates very soon, so check their social media pages to stay up to date on that.

If you aren’t a fan of them, you will be now.
