Formed by Daniel Graves in Hollywood in 2000, Aesthetic Perfection brings a new kind of edge to hard Electro. “The music is all about me and my experiences in the world. I have no interest in making political or social statements – music is the only thing I am good at doing, so this is basically my form of self expression”, Daniel states. Where nowadays most bands in the hard Electro genre tend to sound like carbon copies of one another, Aesthetic Perfection are never scared of provoking, of approaching the music from another angle, of combining unlikely extremes. Hard as fuck, but in a very unique and special way. “I always try to create songs that are very different from one another but that still fit into one coherent sound. I like the hard sounds but I have also always been a big fan of the power of melodies. Therefore, it has always been my desire to combine the two extremes”, Daniel explains.
The name of the project has nothing to do with the music … it is a reflection of Hollywood, where Daniel comes from and where he created the band. “Well, in Hollywood, everything is geared toward phony aesthetic perfection… you know: movie stars, plastic surgery and phony people in general. The name reflects that and I just felt it fitting for a band out of Tinseltown”, Daniel laughs.
