LA duo Conditioner have released their new single “Sleeping Arrangements," which depicts the strange experience of feeling a relationship collapse while simultaneously reflecting on how magical it was at the beginning. “Sleeping Arrangements” is the second track we’ve heard from the band this year, and follows “Dates & Names,” which premiered via Spindle, with praise from Kick Kick Snare, Crack in the Road + more.
Riley McCluskey and Aaron Kirkbride have always asked a lot of questions – growing up in Los Angeles, their curiosity led them both to University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia for college. They formed their first band there, learning how to connect with audiences by playing very loud, very fun rock & roll. A few years after graduating, they reconvened in Los Angeles with a new set of experiences and influences under their belts to create Conditioner.
The duo recorded their debut 2-track EP, Introducing, in Riley’s home studio in July 2016 and received praise from blogs like Ones To Watch, Indie Shuffle, and Buzzbands LA, who compared their “sleek, soulful pop” to the Beach Boys and lauded their songs’ appeal to “more sophisticated palettes.” Soon thereafter, single “That’s Not Me” began gaining popularity on Spotify, starting as the lead-off track on a Fresh Finds playlist and eventually reaching the 4th position in the Global Viral charts, racking up nearly 500,000 streams in the process. Following these initial tracks’ success, the team re-focused on creating a new set of songs in their instantly recognizable style of joyful but left-of-center pop.
