abrasions is a San Francisco east bay post-rock/darkwave project written and arranged solely by J Ericson.
Influenced by the likes of The Cure, Nine Inch Nails, and Elliott Smith, J began writing music alone in 2006. After several independent ambient releases and three years crafting lush guitar orchestrations, found-sounds, and deeply personal lyrics documenting his dreary life experiences, J recorded his cathartic full-length album, Memorial.
From the acoustic noise-pop of Angel and the shoegaze insights of Dreamer to the funeral, longing atmospheres of All Ashes and Some Days, Memorial is a dark, emotional journey exploring themes of fear, loss, and acceptance over nine diverse tracks.
The music video for The Waiting Wall,a dark-ambient miasma at the album's heart, came a few months later, recorded and edited just as independently as the record it accompanied.
J also plays keyboards and rhythm guitar in the gothic rock band, Limnus.
Otherworldly soundscapes, lush guitar orchestrations, and passionate dreamlike vocals.
Nine Inch Nails, The Cure, Elliott Smith, Xiu Xiu, Android Lust, David Bowie, AFI, jesu, Patrick Wolf, Bjork, and many more.
