Reattaching to the modern world after a hiatus in my mind, I return to find myself lost, alone, trapped and wishing to leave. The song brings a nameless ‘you’ into the chorus and offers the hope that a mysterious place, apart from reality, could be viable with the right company.
Drinker is the recording project of singer / songwriter Aaron Mendelsohn and producer / composer Ariel Loh. Based in LA and New York, the bi-coastal duo creates "meticulously crafted" (DIY Magazine) music that has been described as "downtempo psych-pop" (The Line Of Best Fit). Their collaborative efforts meet in either cities, where they bring their individual songwriting and production together. Their 2017 debut EP "Happy Accident" gained support from KCRW, Spotify, as well as rising to the top 10 on the Hype Machine popular charts.
Their upcoming full length "Fragments" explores the idea of experiences in our lives as individual entities scattered across our existence, and faced with the constant challenge of piecing it back together. The 9-track album pushes their sound into new territories while embracing cinematic and electronic dance elements, all the while grounded in minimal and intricate arrangements. The record is due out in fall of 2018.
