Label: Hopeless Records
Released: 21st October 2022
Pinkshift come out kicking and screaming on their debut album.
If you imagine the vulnerable and stark “in a breath” as a gulp of air in the middle of the album, then the remaining tracks are two long, frustrated screams into the void. While at times ‘Love Me Forever’ is unrelenting, the trio are in control as they switch from feisty in “i’m not crying, you’re crying”, to the crushing pulse of ‘BURN THE WITCH’ with ease.
It’s an impressive first album that catches Pinkshift mid-explosion. ■ Alexander Bradley
