First time appearance at Dogtown!
Pink Beds is a cerebral indie pop band formed in 2020 at the cusp of the initial lockdowns. Composed of
four friends from Asheville, NC, they’ve cultivated a strong bond through a shared passion for lush
soundscapes, artfully crafted tunes, and rhythms you can’t help but be moved by. The mélange of dream
pop, new wave, lounge, and disco aims to create an ethereal listening experience with a combination of
low-end groove, velvety guitar, silky keys, gritty synth, and catchy melodies.
Making good use of isolation, the group combined their songwriting abilities and production chops to
manifest a lush, warm, and evocative sonic environment with their December 2020 debut LP, All I Have.
From tracking and production to mixing and mastering, each stage of the process was kept entirely within
the group. The essence of Pink Beds, like its namesake, should be enjoyed with your own senses and a
group of good friends.
Along with two singles in 2021, the band released a live album in 2022, Live From Echo Mountain, from
the fabled Echo Mountain Recording in Asheville, NC. After a productive 2022 securing a foothold in
southeast markets, becoming a FloydFest On-the-Rise artist, and a Relix Magazine Sonic Showdown
Finalist, the band is releasing a new album in the Spring of 2023.
Pink Beds comprises Aaron Aiken (Vocals & Guitar), Jackson Van Horn (Keys & Guitar), Ryan Sargent
(Drums & Percussion), and Logan Hall (Bass).
“What started out as a casual jam to entertain a keg party has morphed itself into one of the most intriguing new musical acts in
Western North Carolina.
Aiken, a Brevard native, now fronts an Asheville group that stands at the intersection of indie rock, psychedelic folk and cerebral
pop. It’s a seamless blend, more so a vibrant flow, that harkens back to the sounds of early 2000s indie icons The Strokes and
Keane, with a thick thread leading to the melodic camps of Tame Impala and Snow Patrol.”
