Many of today’s lo-fi bedroom popsters claim L.A. iconoclast Ariel Pink as an influence. Late last year, Ariel Pink and his band Haunted Graffiti signed to 4AD. Now they’ve introduced the world to “Round and Round”, a song from their forthcoming 4AD debut. And surprise! Pink now sounds like he’s recording in a professional studio.
4AD will release “Round and Round” as a limited 7″ single and digital download on April 26, with “Mistaken Wedding” as its B-side. That’s the adorable cover art above. You can also hear the new Ariel Pink track “Menopause Man” on 4AD’s Record Store Day compilation EP.
