BY ANNA LAROCCO MASI// L.A. based musician Ariel Pink is headed to the 9:30 Club next Sunday, November fifth. This tour follows the release of his latest album, Dedicated to Bobby Jameson.
Born “Ariel Rosenberg,” Pink first gained attention in the early 2000s with the project “Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti.” His musical aesthetic combines pop and rock in a contradicting way that is fittingly ~haunting~. His tracks feature campy lyrics paired with smooth beats that are easy to bounce along to.
In the 2000s, Pink became known for his low-fi sound. My favorite tracks come from his 2002 album Lover Boy, which has a chill vibe tainted with a nostalgia for simple love.
Pink has released a whopping 5 albums since 2010, the most popular of which is Pom Pom. Since the 2014 release of this album, Pink has terminated the “Haunted Graffiti” project and now releases music under his stage name alone.
If you are looking for a concert with music that causes you to really not know how you feel and evoke your inner lo-fi love then you must buy tickets this instant on the 9:30 Club’s website.
