Drinker is the bicoastal recording project of singer-songwriter Aaron Mendelsohn and producer-composer Ariel Loh. The two met in Brooklyn in 2016, brought together by their shared love of artists such as Bon Iver, Fever Ray and James Blake. Out of that initial collaboration came 2017’s Happy Accident EP, described as “four tracks of chillwave inspired bliss” (Discobelle).
It was around that time that Aaron moved to LA. In spite of the huge physical distance it created between them, the duo has continued to create exciting new material. Two years of cross-country collaboration produced their debut LP Fragments via B3Sci Records, a "minimalistic-pop soundscape" of "truly breathtaking, chilling tunes" (Ones To Watch).
Drinker promises new sounds to be shared with the world on a follow-up to Fragments, due out summer 2020.
