ariel pink & jorge elbrecht
hang on to life
‘hang on to life’ is heavy on heartbreak & high on melodrama, with elbrecht's gentle tenor proving a perfect complement to pink's raspier croon on this limited edition 7".
loping, soft-rock verses give way to a mid-song consolation phone-call sending the pair into a soaring canon. on the flipside, ‘no real friend’ plays out in total soft-focus, taking cues from sugary j-pop, lite rock balladry & televisual muzak. it should come as no surprise that this pair are drawn to these lesser trodden pop territories, & manage to appropriate them in the most imaginative way possible.
