As Women’s History Month comes to a close, there really is no better time to shine the spotlight on the extremely talented young ladies that form the band Pinky Pinky. Based out of Los Angeles under the record label Innovative Leisure, the girls released a self-titled EP at the beginning of the year, and more recently the EP titled Hot Tears. Though Eva, Anastasia and Isabelle have just graduated high school, they are hungry for more and using that ambition to create incredible content.
Anyone’s first encounter with this band should start off with their recently released music video for the first song on their second EP, “Margaret”. The song alone is the epitome of current garage rock, full of reverb and rough guitar riffs. Upon viewing the music video, it’s clearly overflowing with an early 2000s ambience, showing the teen girls in their all pink room full of decorations you’d find at Claire’s. The main storyline of the video is based around a mother, Margaret, who is filled with the yearning to be young again like her daughter and her friends. As the girls sing into their brushes and watch music videos on their desktop monitor, Margaret is downstairs popping pills and drinking wine, with the last scene zooming out from the back of her head face down in the hot tub.
Also on the second EP, “Hot Tears” is definitely another piece that stands out, with bold electric guitar and Anastasia’s angelic falsetto voice, sounding like a mix between a ’70s rock song and ’60s ballad. In fact, their entire discography has a sound reminiscent to these times scattered throughout each song. The unique voice of the lead singer and interesting combinations of keyboard and guitar allows these sounds we all know and love to be remade in a new way that is unexpected and refreshing.
The young ladies in Pinky Pinky are full of talent and an energy that’s found in few artists. They truly seem to love what they’re doing and put all of themselves into creating the best possible music. Whether it’s the hearty vocals in “Ram Jam” or the melodic rhythm guitar in “The Nest”, it’s clear they are going to excel in the industry and we will definitely see more from the girls in Pinky Pinky.
