AERS, a collaboration between Tasha Abbott and Zack Nestel-Patt based in
Brooklyn, NY, creates music that speaks to the ethereal. Made with a conscious
effort to bridge electric and acoustic sounds, the songs layer instruments and
textures to swirl around the dark poeticism of the lyrics. Influenced by artist such
as Grizzly Bear, Sigur Ros, and Linda Perhacs, AERS uses ambient electric
guitars and dreamy strings to create an other worldly sonic landscape, one of
mystic atmosphere that is darkly cathartic. Each song provokes one to question
while also providing comfort and warmth.

AERS’ debut EP, Blue Tempest, produced by Patrick Canaday (Moons) is a
collection of 5 songs that are all deeply personal. The inherent poetry in AERS’
songwriting is underscored by the darker textures and ghostly sounds that run
through the EP. As Allston Pudding says, “The hypnotic vocals of lead singer
Tasha Abbott combined with the ambient [arrangements] of Zack Nestel-Patt,
create a unique soundscape perfect for daydreaming.”
