Aly & AJ shot the music video to their new single ‘Rush’ on the big island of Hawaii. The video features pro surfers Makua Rothman and Kepa Kruse and premieres on Yahoo! Music on January 31st.
The Disney Channel has a signed a multi-project deal with actresses and singers Alyson and Amanda Michalka, aka Aly and AJ. “Clearly, kids have connected with Alyson and Amanda, both through their TV appearances and their music, and we are thrilled to have these extraordinary talented sisters as part of our Disney Channel family,” Gary Marsh, president of entertainment at Disney Channel Worldwide.
Paul Schultz of The Trades reviewed Aly & AJ’s debut album ‘Into The Rush’, giving it a ‘B-‘ grade. Schultz writes, “For reasons beyond the scope of this review, I had Hilary Duff’s ‘Most Wanted’ queued up after this album and I was several tracks into the latter’s album until I realized I wasn’t listening to the sisters anymore. This should give you some idea of the musical territory covered in this pop confection. Their vocal talents far surpass Duff’s, but that’s a group that could arguably include everybody.” The story at the-trades.com has since been removed.
