Baltimore-based pop-punk outfit Pinkshift – the quintet of vocalist Ashrita Kumar, guitarist Paul Vallejo, drummer Myron Houngbedji, and bassist Erich Weinroth – have released their debut EP, Saccharine. It includes four previously released tracks – ‘On Thin Ice’, ‘Toro’, ‘Rainwalk’, and the viral ‘i’m gonna tell my therapist on you’ – as well as the new single ‘Mars’. Listen to it below.
“The lyrics of the song are about the beginnings of something shiny and new,” Kumar said of ‘Mars’ in a statement. “Ironically this was the song that really pulled us together to start this band — it’s full of optimism and hope for a brighter future. It feels fitting to put a spin on our original demo this year for the same message with a touch of angst.”
