Ariel Pink



Ariel Marcus Rosenberg (born June 24, 1978), also known by the moniker Ariel Pink, is an American singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. His music is characterized by a lo-fi sound that draws heavily on the influence of 1970s–1980s pop radio and cassette culture.[1][12] He is credited with pioneering the mid-2000s hypnagogic pop style and inspiring chillwave.[12][13]

Rosenberg was born and raised in Los Angeles and began writing songs at "around 10". He first gained recognition after signing to Animal Collective's Paw Tracks label in 2003, where several of his limited-edition home recordings were first given a wide distribution.[12] He found wider exposure following the release of Before Today (2010), which was featured on numerous "best of 2010" lists.[14] Until 2014, his albums were usually credited to "Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti", a solo project sometimes conflated with his touring band.[15][16]
