We are thrilled to announce Pinkish Blu to our family! Pinkish Blu are creators of a unique sound, and we are excited to be working with such a special artist.
Following the release of their early 2018 neon-hued debut single “Lovely”, the Adelaide-based sad-pop post-punk quartet Pinkish Blu recently dropped their highly anticipated second single “Capricorn”. Earning praise such as “reflective, descriptive and full of depth”(triple j unearthed), “a four-minute burst of energy that unites their 80s influences with this punk-meets-dance” (Pilerats), and “the sad-pop anthem you need to knock you right in the feels while simultaneously pumping you up” (Purple Sneakers), and channeling their emotional, 80’s inspired, post-punk, happy-sad vibes,
“Capricorn” delivers a sonically energetic punch. Now, after a blistering performance atBIGSOUND Festival – earning them a support slot on the current MANE tour and being featured on triple j unearthed all last week, Pinkish Blu now give you the video for “Capricorn” directed by the band’s very own Luke Franceschini: “The concept came from listening to the song with a different perspective, seeing someone try to duplicate/replace a previous relationship that impacted them greatly. Instead of moving on they keep recreating what failed, leading them into heartbreak every time.”
Watch Capricorn here:
So far this year Pinkish Blu have supported bands such as Trophy Eyes, WAAX, The Delta Riggs, Kingswood and MANE, as well as performed at Adelaide’s staple Stonecutters Festival and BIGSOUND Festival. After the release of “Lovely” they also signed management with Rachel Whitford of VVV Management (Dear Seattle, Between You & Me, and Eliza & The Delusionals), and bookings with Jimmy Kleiner of 123 Agency (Void Of Vision, Vacations, Eat Your Heart Out, Harley Mavis).
A creatively mature step in the direction of owning their unique sound, latest single “Capricorn” is filled with synth hooks and signature guitar tone, complimented with inventive songwriting and lyricism. With references ranging from greek mythology and star signs, to the bible, “Capricorn” speaks about how the strange and wonderful depths of one’s mind can be hard to deal with when in a relationship.
