Ariel Pink and Jorge Elbrecht - "Hang On To Life" (LOVED)

New MusicadminComment

Ariel Pink comes through with a new, collaborative a-side with Jorge Elbrecht with the song "Hang On To Life." The 7" is due for release on Mexican Summer, and the track basically embodies everything that's been so great about Ariel's material over the past several years.

"Hang On To Life," in a sense, is about heartbreak. It features soft rock instrumentation, a killer chorus, and plenty of retro kitsch. While Pink probably isn't going to give up these aged sounds anytime soon, it doesn't matter to me as long as the songwriting is this top-notch!
