A male/female duo from Southern California; AAIMON defy their sunny locale in exchange for beautiful, grim and sometimes harsh occult soundscapes; with compositions built on anxiety and paranoia giving way to a heightened feverish sexuality and erotic ritualism.

Coming from an extremely wide set of influences, their music is its own unique blend of slow and menacing conjurations. Generally connected with the “drag” and “witchhouse” genres, AAIMON uses unconventional sound-design and tension within often pop oriented song structures to instil unnerving sensations.
