“i’m gonna tell my therapist on you” is inspired by the frustration pf society's disregard of mental health.
“It’s about being tossed between specialists and feeling unheard while existing in the healthcare system. As a band, we put together a sound that really expresses that feeling of ‘looking cr*zy.’ I wanted to be able to reclaim that feeling and make it something powerful that I hope others can relate to.” -Ashrita Kumar
The song is driven by the barebones of power chords and punk drumming. Listeners will be met with eerie chord progressions and classic punk energy as the core elements of this single.
Pinkshift is inspired by 90s grunge and 2000s pop-punk, combining sounds between riot grrl, punk rock, and post-hardcore. Melting together different musical and cultural roots by a common love for angsty rock, the band embraces their diverse backgrounds to create an authentic and powerful sound.
