How fleeting and elusive to feel fulfilled in such a strange world. When you search for it in another person and look at what you find, it never feels like what you expected, so you search for something new. You look inside, you think you find it, but when you come back out, it just fades into the noise around you.
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. A live band in LA has come together to bring the songs to stage.
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 embracing cinematic and electronic dance elements, all the while grounded in minimal and intricate arrangements. The record is due out in 2019.
