PINKSHIFT – ” Nothing (in My Head) “

Posted: July 12, 2022 in MUSIC

Pinkshift is a rock band new to the scene from Maryland Baltimore. With writing inspired by 90s grunge and 2000s pop punk, the band walks the lines between riot grrl, punk rock, and post-hardcore. Comprised of vocalist Ashrita Kumar, guitarist Paul Vallejo, drummer Myron Houngbedji, and bassist Erich Weinroth, the self-described ‘rat city rock nerds’ formed in college in 2018. All studying at a research university in Baltimore, they’re the first to admit there’s not much of a scene at their school, so they found each other through music clubs and – would you believe it – a Tinder search party. Reminiscing on their formative days, Ashrita recalls the tipping point: she and Paul had written so many songs that they thought “logically, we should play these out loud, and how do we do that? We have to start a band to do that.”

Punk bands have taken a stand against subjugation and Pinkshift continue the legacy by kicking back against their modern oppressor; smartphones and social media. “nothing (in my head)” is a heavy AF ode to turning off your devices and embracing the smooth brain lifestyle.

The official music video for Pinkshift’s new single “nothing (in my head)” available now on Hopeless Records!
