Didn't realise that The 1975 were uploading their music to Unearthed but I sure am glad about it. Vivid images in this one.

Pinkish Blu have this knack of writing lyrics that look appalling on paper but when delivered they just sort of... work? This band rule.

My heart!!!!! So romantic and gentle. You had me by that first line and I love when the beat takes a quick pause. Your words are always so thought out, it's impossible not to believe in them/it/this project. This is a true gift for all the hopeless romantics in the world. S...

Some enviable buzz building around this band. Sounds like they can exist in a few different worlds thanks to their influences and balance of light and dark.

The hazy '80s production and that casual vocal delivery really works for me.

Your songwriting is next level gorgeous. It's like reading a book. It's reflective, descriptive and full of depth, ideas and thought. I can't get enough. Capricorn - beautiful in all parts.

love the way the underplayed, despondent vocals play against everything else that's so huge.

Nice to hear you guys honing in on your sound. This hits a pretty sweet spot for me, I usually find it pretty hard to resist anything with a neon hue and a thumping indie-rock heart.

This is wonderful and I can see why you've included LANY in your 'sounds like' section. Jangly, bright, busy but full of space. I'll absolutely be watching closely to hear what comes next.

I can't believe this is just your second upload! This carries striking momentum, brightness but also this underlying sadness. It's sad-dream-pop at it's best! That synth is consuming and I love all that whirly noise. "I asked you to love me" is a really catchy line too. LOVE this!

Dreamy and dreary all at once. Really big fan of the imagery you create with your lyrics - "I wrote the words 'I love you' 'cause an old French film from '65 told me to" is such a vivid line. Not as strong as Capricorn and Lovely in my opinion, but still a banger.

It's amazing how Pinkish Blu can write music that sounds like it's straight from a private journal rather than lyrics made in the studio. It's like musing into a song rather than with pen and paper. Beautiful blend of electronic/synths and the guitar. This track made my heart flutter.

I love the sonic landscapes this song provides. While it's a really laid back tune and real intimate with the vocals, it does not hold back on the dreamy aesthetic. You can hear it with the those beautiful chorus delayed guitars and synths that just feel like you're falling on a marshmallow cloud.

Really nice blend of styles. Saw you guys live a while back was equally impressed with the live performance. Can't wait to see what comes next!
