“Mature Themes, Pink’s grittier, gristlier, and funnier follow-up, clarifies that Before Today was not a sign of things to come but rather just a signpost along his unknowable path.” – Pitchfork, Best New Music review

“Mature Themes is the best thing Pink has ever done.” Stereogum

“The work of a unique mind.” NME

“Ariel Pink has a dreamy, old-fashioned way with melody. But he’s also prone to jarring interjections, switching without ceremony from a smooth Donny Osmond croon to campy impersonations of daffy robots and soap-opera vampires.” – New York Times

“The visionary Los Angeles singer-songwriter has obsessively excavated the forgotten refuse of the past, recombining it into a secret history of pop, and inspiring an entire indie generation” – SPIN

With latest album Mature Themes, released this week, Ariel Pink and his band Haunted Graffiti have revealed the video for “Only In My Dreams.” Directed by Travis Peterson ( ), it stars a pink-hued Ariel flexing his acting muscle on a pursuit to find love again after being spurned by a long-term girlfriend.

Peterson had this to say about his work: “Some people dream in black and white, some in color, and some people dream only in sound. Ariel Pink dreams in VHS.”
