Following the release of the official video for Bissett’s “More Than Friends” earlier this month, streams of the track spiked, hitting five million on Spotify alone. Wonderland said, “Meet the newcomer we love that you need to know – if you’re not one of the 8 million fans he already has – Aidan Bissett” in this “New Noise” feature, which praised his combination of “smooth and soulful beats with meaningful words and true to real-life experiences.” “More Than Friends” was included in BuzzFeed’s recent round-up of “62 Songs You’ve Definitely Listened To At Least 15 Seconds Of On TikTok This Year,” underscoring how ubiquitous the track has become since its release last November.
Just a year ago, Bissett released his first single, “Different,” which immediately gained traction online. As he amassed a sizable following on TikTok, he next put out “Worst Girls of All Time,” an anti-love-song spiked with moody guitar riffs that landed on Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist, and “More Than Friends.” Written, recorded, and produced entirely by Bissett, the songs earned him major buzz – and landed the 18-year-old a deal with Capitol Records before he had even graduated from high school. Combined global streams of Bissett’s first three tracks and his Capitol debut single, “Communication,” are nearing 11 million.
Born in Florida, Bissett was raised on classic rock bands like Led Zeppelin and AC/DC. He moved to Oregon with his family when he was five and started playing electric guitar in second grade. By the time his family moved back to Florida, he was a teen. Enamored with indie rock, he began teaching himself to produce his own music. Channeling the pressures, anxieties and wildly heightened emotions of adolescence into songs, Bissett has forged a high-energy breed of indie-pop built on his shimmering guitar work, heart-on-sleeve sincerity and self-effacing humor.
