Aaberg crafts resplendently hazy, melancholic bedroom jams that feel like stepping into a sepia-tinged, half-forgotten daydream. Having recently released his new album Jynx, we caught up with the rising lo-fi musician to find out a little more about him.

The project of South London multi-talented artist and musician Hunter Mockett, Aaberg’s sound offers a harmonious blend of glistening serenity tinged with lilting melancholia by way of meandering guitar lines, sparse beats and whispered vocals. Speaking on Jynx, his latest release following on from last year’s debut Albatross, Mockett expresses “A lot of it is trying to make sense of the swirling experiences life can involve. A lot of shattered or blossoming relationships told through different voices.”


With Jynx out now, get to know Aaberg In Short…

Last photo on your phone… 

Favourite instagram account… 

I don’t use it 

The best venue I’ve played… 

My friend Henrys living room 

Earliest song you remember… 

Probably something from the Eels’ first record, or maybe ‘a tune for jack’ by Lemon Jelly 

The worst job I’ve ever had… 

When I was 13 I operated a lift for 4 pounds an hour that was pretty shit. But I got to fuck around and do whatever while I was waiting for people to ring the bell. 

Favourite food on tour… 

Just get a meal deal 

My Favourite word… 

espaguetis 

Things that cheer me up… 

When a friend shows me something they’ve made 

If I could play a gig anywhere it would be… 

In my old house in Manchester. We should have put on gigs there but never got it together. 

I think you should listen to(something other than yourself) 

Free Lunch (https://fr33lunch.bandcamp.com/releases), Wilder (https://wilderr.bandcamp.com/album/buckethead) and Sprog (https://sprog.bandcamp.com/album/egobreadeggydeath-2). All three are insane projects 

If I could see anyone play live it would be… 

Aphex Twin, but just me and him in my room alone.

Jynx is out now, get the album here.
