Time means everything for the pop duo of sisters Aly & AJ. Dating back to their days in Disney Channel, Alyson and Amanda Joy Michalka have always brought an authentic, unique perspective to every project they're a part of. Their early success met a ten year hiatus, which the sisters concluded with their iconic project, "Ten Years." This EP marked both a new beginning and a reintroduction for Aly & AJ, cementing their unique and fresh sound in an industry and genre that is known for being ultra competitive.


Following up that project, Aly and AJ return with another fresh perspective with their EP "Sanctuary." This five-song EP could be seen as a sequel to "Ten Years" but it's also incredibly unique on its own.


According to their Spotify bio, "The Michalka sisters, having always sought solace in songwriting, had lost touch with their musical passion. Their energy poured into their acting and producing projects. 'Ten Years' was a collection of shimmering pop tracks that were brimming with a new found sense of energy and excitement that was impossible to ignore. Throughout their new ep 'Sanctuary', 80’s inspired synth, electronic textures and layered harmonies are bound together by an undeniable and resounding strength from the sisters who are not afraid to let their voices and stories be heard."
