LOS ANGELES — “Pleaser,” a song by Empty Streets, the musical project by Aaron Thompson — known in the adult industry as performer Small Hands — has been selected by Billboard magazine for the prestigious “10 Cool Pop Songs to Get You Through the Week” feature.
Small Hands, the 2018 XBIZ Award winner for “Male Performer of the Year,” has been promoting his “Age of Regret” EP with new single “Pleaser,” and a religiously themed video directed by veteran adult helmsman Mike Quasar and co-starring Jessie Lee and Kira Noir.
Earlier this year, Small Hands described Empty Streets to metal news site Loudwire as “a one man mess of dark, brooding synthpop.”
Billboard’s Joe Lynch praised “Pleaser” earlier this week, noting that “Empty Streets, the musical project from adult film actor Aaron Thompson, delivers some darkly alluring Depeche Mode vibes” featuring “a melancholy, moody synth sermon that pulls you in like an inescapable undertow tugging at your ankles. “
