Hit singles are great, but for every real artist the dream when they go into the studio is to make music that reaches people, songs that strike a deep chord and resonates with audiences well after the track ends. For Aaron Bruno, the architect of white-hot new rockers AWOLNATION, hearing that his brilliant 'Megalithic Symphony' has achieved that lofty ambition with anyone is the greatest reward of the success the band is enjoying now.

And keep in mind, Bruno can't be pigeonholed into one style of music. “I like so much music. I love old country music, I love a lot of kind of silly pop stuff, I love all hip hop, all different eras, obviously metal, punk rock, indie rock, there’s no one genre that I love more than another one. So I think that comes through in our music,” he says.

That often leads to some memorable, occasionally confusing, and very flattering descriptions. “I’ll talk to one person and they’ll go, ‘I hear Nine Inch Nails meets Aretha Franklin.’ I’m like, ‘That’s the weirdest thing I’ve ever heard. How does that even make sense?’” he asks. “I’ve heard the Nirvana comparisons, Nirvana meets Outkast meets Prince, that’s a comparison I love obviously.” All of those artists have achieved the dream that Bruno has been striving for since he started making music. “It’s always been a goal of mine to make that special record people remember as sort of like a landmark in time.” With 'Megalithic Symphony' Aaron Bruno has proven that he is the unique talent that can make that dream come true.
