Fragment II is the second single from Fragments – the upcoming debut LP of American electronic duo Drinker – singer / songwriter Aaron Mendelsohn and producer / composer Ariel Loh. Check it out below.

With its cinematic, noirish take on electronica, Fragment II makes reference to more dance-oriented sounds as you hear flecks of trance and trip-hop bubbling in the mix.

Layers of ambient beats and subtle synths create a sound that is at once expansive, but also intimate thanks to Mendelsohn’s sweetly plaintive vocals that capture perfectly the sadness and longing that can sometimes come after attaining moments of happiness.

Fragment II is out now, and can also be streamed on Spotify. The Fragments album – which they say ‘explores the idea of experiences in our lives as individual entities scattered across our existence and faced with the constant challenge of piecing it back together’ – is due out in 2019.

You can keep track of release news via the band’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.
