Introducing: Ancient Mariner
Ancient Mariner are a local trio consisting of Gabriel Jorgensen (Guitars, Vocals, Synth, Cello), Daniel Stewart (Bass, Synth) and Connor Davison (Drums). They play moody music that splits the difference between alternative rock and folk influences. The result is dreamy, confessional tunes that effortlessly ride the rails from spare acoustic plucking to cathartic climaxes of sound. Despite a hat tip from Pitchfork a few years back, Ancient Mariner haven’t made a huge splash in the local scene as of yet. There is still plenty of time for that though – Ancient Mariner released their second EP (first as a full band) this past June and you can stream it below. They will also be performing this coming Tuesday, Feb 9th, at Icehouse with Valley Maker and Savannah Smith.
