Monday 10th November, 2014 11:35AM

It is hard to deny the effect Ariel Pink has had on music during the past decade. His skewed vision and version of lo-fi bedroom pop has influenced many musicians. An underground mainstay for years, it wasn’t until Pink signed to 4AD in 2009 that he started to get some crossover success. His first two releases on the British-based label, under the moniker Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, were 2010’s Before Today and 2012’s Mature Themes, both of which were received well by critics and fans alike with the song 'Round and Round' even named as Pitchfork’s number one song of 2010. This November will see Pink release a brand new 69-minute, 17-track double-album entitled Pom Pom under the name Ariel Pink. The LA-residing musician, whose real name is Ariel Rosenberg, is often outspoken and in the spotlight for negative reasons and his promotion for Pom Pom has been no different after he unleashed on Madonna and in return was called a misogynist by Grimes. UnderTheRadar spoke with the intelligent, yet often scatterbrained, Pink to ask him about this latest incident, talk about Pom Pom, see why he dropped the Haunted Graffiti, and find out if Ariel Pink is a really just figment of our imaginations...
