LA’s king of pop perversion Ariel Pink returns with a second offering from his new album pom pom, in the form of new wave-flavoured ‘Black Ballerina’.
Spanning 17 tracks and 69 minutes, pom pom is unfiltered Ariel, a pied piper of the absurd, with infectious tales of romance, murder, frog princes and Jell-O. With the Los Angeles native striking it out alone and returning to the solo moniker he has adopted for well over a decade, pom pom could very well be Ariel Pink’s magnum opus.
pom pom is Ariel Pink’s third studio album for 4AD, following his Haunted Graffiti releases Before Today (2010) and Mature Themes (2012).
