Pinkshift Announce Debut Album ‘Love Me Forever’, Share New Song

    Pinkshift have announced their debut album, Love Me Forever, which will drop on October 21 via Hopeless. It was recorded by Will Yip and includes the previously released single ‘nothing (in my head)’ as well as a new one called ‘i’m not crying, you’re crying’, which you can hear below.

    “We were concerned this wouldn’t feel like an actual album, but because we all worked on it together throughout this period of time, it feels really cohesive,” vocalist Ashrita Kumar said in a statement. “It defines an era of our lives.”

    Drummer Myron Houngbedji added: “With everything that’s going on – both in the world and in our own lives – it feels like it was a very transitional period that influenced what we were writing about. They all have similar themes.”

    Commenting on the new track, Kumar said: “‘crying’ is the one song on the record that I didn’t start with a particular direction, just raw and unfiltered emotion. As the first song on Love Me Forever, it kicks the record off with a panicked denial – an immediately attacking response to the question of ‘are you okay?’ untrusting and doubtful of the intent and sincerity of that question.”

    Pinkshift released their debut EP, Saccharine, last year.
