Rollercoasterwater is the Psychedelic Pop project of the queer Los Angeles based artist Chuckie Behring.
Equally influenced by pop acts like Chairlift
and A. G. Cook
, the Vaporwave art movement, as well as experimental artists like Oneohtrix Point Never
. In 2013 when he was the tender age of 19, Rollercoasterwater got his first big break when he opened for the band Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks
at The Echo in L.A. During which Dave Portner generously gave him a lot of very formative advice about being a psychedelic musician and staying true to yourself. In the following years after releasing Dripping Retina
, his first proper album, Rollercoasterwater played every show offered to him, everything from bars, sound baths, and house parties, to underground raves in the desert and Los Angeles venues like The Smell. Rollercoasterwater likes to adapt his sound to his audience, depending on the context live he can be sugary bubblegum pop, luscious synth soundscapes, dance bass music, maybe break out the guitar to make walls of chords, or psychedelic vocal looping. 2018 ushered in a new album called Degauss Advance
