Hello friends! Aaron Thompson here from Empty Streets — some of you may also know me from “something else,” and I’ll let the rest of you figure it out on Google!
[Editor's note: Don't Google that at work. It is as NSFW as it gets. If you're under 18, don't do it.]
I’m the singer/songwriter/creative mind behind Empty Streets, a one man mess of dark, brooding synthpop.
Valentine's Day to me has always felt a bit corny in the "chocolates and teddy bears" sense, but I’m a sucker for any occasion that celebrates love, passion and usually involves tears — good or bad.
So whether you’re hunkered down with a loved one, or alone as hell this Valentine's Day, this playlist has something for both sides of the coin.
In no particular order here are my 10 Favorite Dark Love Songs.
Empty Streets' 'Age of Regret' EP is set to drop in June. Watch the video for the latest single, "Age of Regret" below. Of the song, Thompson said, "Often the hand that grants us our dreams also forever darkens our door. This is a song about how painful it is to make peace with a world that’s fed you beautiful poison since day one. You want to conquer the world, defeat your demons… but at what cost? This is the cost…this is the age that I regret."
