Drinker

Synth-pop duo Drinker releases “Follow,” first single off new album

Drinker’s “Follow” is the train-riding, solo-walking, last-hour-of-a-long-flight soundtrack you have been waiting for. It has a transportative element, a mellow, continual feel of slowly traveling to an eventual goal. Producer and composer Ariel Loh achieves this by layering singer-songwriter Aaron Mendelsohn’s soothing vocals over looping electronic beats and synth pads you can get lost in. It’s a yearning, earnest, repeating plea by Mendelsohn: “If I can make you follow / I think that we might find our way.” “Follow” is the first single from their forthcoming album, and if this track is any way a preview of things to come, Drinker is definitely one to keep an ear on. - Lily Crandall

   

Bicoastal project Drinker gets love from Buzzband.la + plays Cape House on 06.30

Being the first to blog about a talented emerging artist is the single most fulfilling thing for any music critic (only second to seeing that artist become huge!), and that's what The Deli is all about. Buzzbands.la does a lot of breaking new bands too, and we are more than happy to point you in their direction for what is, in all likelihood, the first review for bicostal synth-pop band Drinker, the recording project of singer / songwriter Aaron Mendelsohn and producer/composer Ariel Loh. The fact that reputable NYC show organizers Pop Gun booked them for a show at Cape House in Brooklyn on June 30th comes as a further proof that this act has potential. Check out below the only single currently available for streaming, the melancholic synthetic ballad 'Which Way Is South.'
