There’s a sound I always find myself craving when fall comes around. I don’t know if it’s the echo of good times associated with Halloween and birthdays and homecoming or if it’s just the chill that sinks into my bones that reminds me that I need a little vacation from the sweet, jangly sounds of the past few months.
Whatever the case, Pinsky hits the spot. Their bio claims their debut is a summer record, but I would beg to differ. The gruff vocals (split three ways!) and spiky riffs hammer home best over a dull October moon, not sparkling mid-summer sun. It’s a little post – everything: hardcore, punk and pop, mixing genres till they break and form something fresh. Like hooks? Check out the lead single “Losing Touch.” Like dense instrumentation? Borderline jazzy guitar riffs? Closer “States” has you covered.
Their video for lead single “Losing Touch” makes the most of a clever idea on a small budget. I particularly love the detail of the “can-delier” hanging in the center of the performance space. Check it out:
