Frazer elevates his sea breeze soul with highly affecting splashes of gospel, psychedelia, disco, and a very welcome dose of laid-back widescreen musical flourishes too - it's like it was made with beach reclining on the mind.

A daring blend of soul, psychedelia, spaghetti western, disco, gospel and hip-hop, 'Into the Blue' represents the impressive range of Frazer’s sonic talents. Frazer maintains the unmistakable falsetto and classic songwriting he’s known for, but plants 'Into the Blue' firmly in the now with a hip-hop mentality at its core, weaving together genres and production techniques to form something new. The album features moments of towering arrangements, recalling David Axelrod and Ennio Merricone, balanced by rawness, incorporating iPhone recordings and one-take vocals. For 'Into the Blue', Frazer enlisted Grammy-winner Alex Goose as co- producer, known for his crate-digging samples and collaborations with hip-hop artists like Freddie Gibbs, Madlib and Brockhampton. Frazer also experimented with samples for the first time on a record, drawing from unexpected sources like 90s R&B group Hi-Five. Though 'Into the Blue' is born out of heartbreak, Frazer hopes it leaves listeners with a sense of optimism. “You know, you can still laugh on a day when you’re grieving,” he says, “there’s no peaks without valleys,” he says, but Into The Blue sees Aaron Frazer at new heights
