PINKWASH (Philadelphia, PA)
- Philadelphia duo Pinkwash is a new band, but their origins go back a few years. The project is a continuation of heavy punk duo Ingrid, which guitarist Joey Doubek and Ashley Arnwine (also recently of Waxahatchee) formed while living in Washington, D.C. during the late 2000s. Their pre-established friendship—and the trust it entails—has been necessary for the creation of Pinkwash’s songs, many of which spring from Doubek’s feelings surrounding the 2009 death of his mother from breast cancer. "It's like continuing the process of an overarching grief cycle: long after acceptance comes extreme bitterness," he said in an interview last year. "Which is an easier state to be in to write angry, loud music."

To be sure, Pinkwash is plenty angry and plenty loud. On "Cancer Money"—from a 7" single on DC label Sister Polygon—the duo sound like they are trying to bash a hole through their practice space wall. The minimalist heavy-metal-inspired riffs call to mind K Records heavy rockers, Karp, albeit without that band’s sense of cheer or humor. Eventually, churning tones and squealing drones give way to a field recording of buzzing, wheezing machinery; turns out, it’s a recording of Doubek’s mother’s breathing machine. The usual adjectives that get tossed around in music that deals with death and dying—funereal, solemn, haunting—don’t fit here. Amid the feeling of powerlessness, Pinkwash use their music to re-assert control, confronting grief and anguish with high volume catharsis rather than quiet acceptance. - Pitchfork.com
