LA / NY psych-pop pairing Drinker have just this month released their debut Happy Accident EP and ‘Sinking / Feeling’ is the latest track to be lifted from it.
Comprised of two former members of NYC outfits Isadora (Aaron Mendelsohn) and Stone Cold Fox (Ariel Loh), ‘Sinking / Feeling’ offers a perfect summary of the talents. It’s a slow-burning, gentle undulating jam imbued by a sense of yearning and melancholic vibe. A mournful melody and murmuring vocals serve as the lifeblood of the song, which floats as if soundtracking a hazy, half-memory until introducing flares of synth, slices of acoustic guitar and twinkling piano. These little flourishes help develop the atmosphere further before culminating in a surprisingly frenetic, climactic swirl.
The Happy Accident EP is out now via Dollar Slice Records. Listen to ‘Sinking / Feeling’ below.
