Aidan Martin releases two versions of new single Get Together

Aidan Martin has emerged with a sound that is fresh, polished and uncompromisingly Rock ‘n’ Roll. In a time when audiences are seeking the next big thing by scrolling through their social media feeds, it has become increasingly hard to find a band that is authentic and professional, one that breathes groovy blues and plays to the soul of rock.

Aidan Martin –  “ The song is about people coming together. Unfortunately history shows that people more than often are only pull together in times of turmoil. Whether it be; war, poverty, political unrest or social inequality. It is here where music can truly play a pivotal role, offering individuals an opportunity to speak openly about the corruption and lies that we are so often fed by politicians and other leaders.

Therefore it is important for people to stand up for their rights, to stand together and to ensure that there is freedom of speech, freedom of thought and freedom of creation.

Often, for anything meaningful to happen and for progress to occur; whether it be in Science, Biology, Art, Politics and more –  it can only become a reality when people come together and stand together. Therefore we should not focus on what makes us different but rather find what we have in common with one another. To understand that only when we do come together, can we truly affect change in this ever changing and ever evolving world we find ourselves in.

The red hands within the artwork, signifies that blood runs through us all, no matter what colour, what race, what belief or what ethnicity we are. Yet, we always end up making war and time and time and time again it’s so sad to see.”
