Breaking free from the norm, Apryll Aileen’s distinctive talents have set her on a remarkable journey in the music industry. The classically trained pianist with a touch of science and spirituality, Aileen, is making waves with her latest offering, the focus track “In These Flames” and its accompanying music video from her new album, “Bad Things”. The release of this album acts as the follow-up to her previous single “Our Time”.

A multifaceted artist hailing from Atlantic Canada, Apryll Aileen defies categorisation, transcending musical genres and creating her distinctive, undefinable sound. This is certainly noticeable in her newly-released sophomore album, “Bad Things”.

This album is an emotional odyssey that explores the facets of love, heartbreak, and the rollercoaster of life’s adventures. In the process, it delves into the complexities of self-discovery, inviting listeners to journey through the highs and lows of human experiences. The album simultaneously inspires and sheds light on the challenges that life can throw at us.

Watch the official music video to “In These Flames” by Apryll Aileen here:

It’s a personal voyage, reflecting Aileen’s experiences as an artist who forges her own path and explores her inner self through introspection and connection with others. Produced by Grammy-nominated Daniel Lafrombe (known for his work with John Legend and Amy Wadge) and written by Andrew Hand and Apryll Aileen, “Bad Things” is a testament to Aileen’s musical prowess and creativity whilst also showcasing her songwriting skills transcending location boundaries as it was written during her time between Los Angeles, New York, Atlantic Canada, and the United Kingdom.

The focus track, “In These Flames”, tantalises listeners with its fiery narrative, exploring trust issues and hinting at a double life akin to that of a spy. Trust, like fire, can be a volatile agent; once violated, it can either erupt in flames or smoulder slowly over the passionate embers. The intrigue lies in what comes next, making “In These Flames” a captivating musical journey.

The track maintains a captivating alternative-pop R&B production-style ballad, as Aileen’s gorgeous vocals flow over piano keys that continue the addicting rhythm of the track. Full of heart and emotion, Aileen completely delivers as she delves into destructive secrets and promises that within the flames, they can have it all.

Taking inspiration from the theme of the track, the beautifully shot music video captures the essence of the song and magnifies it. Directed by Ginevra Syperek, with Benjamin Edwards handling cinematography, we watch as Apryll Aileen starts the visual off by performing at a piano with candles lit all around, casting a calming and alluring light. Intercut throughout are shots of Aileen spying on people, opening documents, and doing something with electronics and chemicals. The ending sees her put everything into an oil drum including passports and documents, pouring an accelerant over them, and striking a match. Additional cast members in the music video include Patrick Edwards-Daugherty, Lisa Reid, and Johnny Evans.
