Wild Pink brings punk-influenced indie rock to Goldsounds, 7.26

Wild Pink brings punk-influenced indie rock to Goldsounds, 7.26

Wild Pink is one of those rare bands that's able to channel the emotional without being melodramatic, the nostalgic without the overly sentimental. The New York-based three-piece informs their brand of indie rock with punk and garage influences, while their narrative-inspired lyricism channels a singer-songwriter vibe. Their New York roots become clear in songs like “Great Apes” (streaming below) where they make specific references to their surroundings (“Riding out some psychotropics / In the shadow of the World Trade / Trying hard to understand the culture in my face.”) The dynamics of the song are reminiscent of early 2000s indie rock, but their simple, raw lyrics modernize the track. Their next live show will be at Goldsounds in Brooklyn on the 26th, and after that, The Knit on 08.23 and then a September East Coast tour. - Lilly Milman
