Adelaide indie-pop 4 piece Pinkish Blu release their new single ‘Old Blue’ today, and share details about their forthcoming sophomore EP, coming out on July 30.
Although their new track ‘Old Blue’ is a step in a new direction for the band, it still features their trademark alt-pop sound. The band reveals more about ‘Old Blue’:
“Sonically we’ve tried to combine two contrasting sections to create an interesting switch up of sorts but all the while trying to not throw the listener out of the song completely. Lyrically it has to be our most self-critical and honest work to date, looking at the internal disdain for oneself and discussing the impact that has on those around us. But also how with enough self criticism one can turn that all around for the betterment of others.”
The beautiful and visually arresting video, directed by Aimee-Lee Curran touches on the subject of how difficult it can be to “move on” in life, whether that be moving on from someone or something, it’s important to at least try.
For fans of subversive alt-pop bands like The 1975 and Owl City, Pinkish Blu’s forthcoming EP features new tracks and their previously released singles in 2021: ‘Start A Band’ which secured a swag of Spotify playlists, and ‘Backward’, which was added to Triple j rotation in March.
Pinkish Blu have come a long way since winning Triple j Unearthed in 2019 to becoming one of Australia’s most promising indie pop bands. They’re signed to Sony Music, and managed by LA based management company ‘Lost Boy’ who also manage dark-indie pop singer, Cxloe.
Pinkish Blu have shared the stage with Thelma Plum and Hilltop Hoods at Groovin The Moo, and supported the likes of G Flip, The Rubens, Trophy Eyes and most recently with Odette in May. The band will be playing a few shows in support of their EP throughout July.
