The Aces have announced a performance at the Historic Scoot Inn in Austin, on Sunday, December 19. This is an all-ages show with doors opening at 6:30 pm and tickets being sold for $20.
The Aces are an American indie pop band from Provo, Utah consisting of members guitarist Kate Henderson, bassist McKenna Petty, and sisters Alisa Ramirez (drums) and Cristal Ramirez (lead vocals and guitars).
The band evolved all the way from when sisters Cristal and Alisa were just eight years old, being raised in a music-loving household. The sisters eventually asked their best friend Petty to ask for a bass for Christmas so they could form the trio band the Blue Aces along with the joining of Henderson in 2008. Over the years of playing locally and experimenting with their sound, they were listed on the “Top 10 Best Bands in Provo” by Provo Buzz and “10 Best Utah Bands You Should Know” by Paste Magazine. They were signed by Red Bull Records in 2016, shortened their name to The Aces, and released their first single Stuck in March of that year.
Stuck racked up more than two million plays on streaming services, and gave their first taste a national success. A second Aces single from Red Bull, “Physical,” followed in April 2017. February 2018 saw the release of the single “Lovin’ Is Bible” in anticipation of the arrival of their full-length debut, When My Heart Felt Volcanic, which arrived later that April.
After the album came out, the Aces hit the road, opening tours for 5 Seconds of Summer and COIN, as well as headlining a run of shows of their own. In 2020, three new tracks from the Aces appeared on streaming services, “Daydream,” “Lost Angeles,” and “My Phone Is Trying to Kill Me.” The tracks showed off a cleaner, harder sound with a noticeable R&B edge, a creative evolution that dominated their second album, Under My Influence, which was released in June 2020. In early 2021, a pair of Under My Influence bonus tracks, “Sleepy Eyes” and “Aren’t You,” were released online.
