Rollercoasterwater share new dreamlike single “Avey Tare Said” from

new EP ‘Umami Sounding Fireball’, which comes out April 15th

“The song takes all sorts of futuristic sonic waves reminiscent of Postal Service with Animal Collective-esque vocals floating above. It makes for quite the captivating listen”  – My Old Kentucky Blog

“A beautiful swirl of digitalized ambient and rhythm-smart pop” – No Fear of Pop

“Spacey vocals and simplistic yet challenging electronic arrangements”  – Indie Shuffle

“Boasts stuttering, self-deconstructing synths and massive synth drums beneath beautifully ghoulish vocals”  – CMJ


Rollercoasterwater is a psychedelic pop duo that gets their influences from video game scores, tribal indigenous music and infinite loop duplication. Emerging from the outer suburbs of Los Angeles, the duo united in college with a vision of glitchy patterns and hypnotic synths. Rollercoasterwater is two parts: one celestial and lush melodies crafted by Chuckie Behring, and the other intricate rhythms manipulated by percussive entity Robin Levy. The pair recently recorded “Umami Sounding Fireball” as a progression into a more organic synesthesia sound with Glitch-Rock hooks and colorful live drums.

Story Behind “Avey Tare Said” as Told by Chuckie Behring

“On Thursday, August 29, 2013 a friend of mine and I opened for Avey Tare (Dave Portner) as Rollercoasterwater at the Echo in LA. It was my first show at a venue and I was extremely nervous and excited to have such an awesomely random fluke of an opportunity. We arrived for our sound check just as Dave’s band, Slasher Flicks, was finishing theirs. After finishing, he immediately walked up to us and introduced himself. He was super nice, and after we finished our sound check, we had a few hours to hang out in the green room with him. While we were chilling in the green room, Dave introduced us to his wife Angel Deradoorian (formerly of Dirty Projectors) and we sparked up conversation about everything ranging from their recent marriage to psychedelics. Dave started giving us all of this really intensely profound advice about life and what being a successful psychedelic musician in the current music industry is like. Him and Angel told me a lot of personal stuff I won’t share, but he also told me that I really shouldn’t perform high, and to play as many shows as possible and go on tour in a van or something as much as I can. I don’t know if he realized how much of an impact he made on my 19-year-old mind, but that night is still one of the most awesome nights of my life so far. Our performance went super well and the audience was kind of like ‘Who the hell are these guys,’ but I think they liked it.”

“‘Avey Said’ was written right after that night and it took me several years to perfect it. I took what he said to heart and the next few years of my life after that night up until now have been a crazy whirlwind of psychedelic artists and involvement in underground movements around LA like Church of Fun and AndFam or performing to goat ravers around a fire pit with contortionists at Zorthian Ranch and at Salvation mountain near Salton Sea and many other crazy stories. For me, I think it all spurred from this encounter with Dave and the advice he gave me. Hope you like the song!”

Following up the premiere of “Avey Tare Said” is the new EP ‘Umami Sounding Fireball’, which comes out April 15th, extending the new direction of the band and their unique mix of electronic and live instrumentation. To showcase the EP, Rollercoasterwater are currently on a West Coast tour and will be playing the Suspended in a Sunbeam Festival in Apple Valley, CA. More info HERE
