Ariel Pink

Los Angeles-based king of pop perversion

The team at Colston Hall bring Ariel Pink the king of pop perversion to Trinity Centre. Across its 17 tracks and 69 minutes, new album pom pom is unfiltered Ariel: a Pied Piper of the absurd, with infectious tales of romance, murder, frog princes and Jell-O. The record sees the Los Angeles native strike it out alone, returning to the solo moniker he has adopted for well over a decade – and this could well be his magnum opus.

Los Angeles-based one-man band and pied-piper of the absurd Ariel Pink’s lo-fi, Baroque music was first discovered by indie group Animal Collective, who began releasing volumes of Ariel Pink home recordings on their Paw Tracks label. 2004’s ‘The Doldrums’ came first, and gained Pink both critical acclaim and a cult following.

Having formed the band Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti in order to bring his recordings to life, he signed with indie label 4AD late in 2009, and the next year released his highest-selling record to date, ‘Before Today’. His 2014 release, ‘Pom Pom’, saw Pink return to his solo moniker, and features songs written with 60s novelty record producer and musician, Kim Fowley.

Ariel Pink began songwriting at the age of ten, with early influences deriving from pop acts such as Hall & Oates, Michael Jackson, 10cc, Fleetwood Mac, and David Bowie. After a stint studying visual art at the California Institute of the Arts,Pink switched his artistic focus to songcraft for good.
