LA trio Pinky Pinky release their debut album ‘Turkey Dinner’ today via Innovative Leisure! They have also just announced their return to European shores this October, including dates in London, Manchester, Leeds and Brighton supporting BRONCHO.
“Turkey Dinner” is a patchwork quilt of garage rock and oddball indie. It’s rooted in classic bass, drums, guitar, bolstered by the perspectives of a trio of LA youths writing about their everyday observations, anxieties and passions. Produced by Hanni El Khatib and Jonny Bell, it finds the band maturing sonically as a trio, while maintaining the rambunctious energy that fuels their experiences as three young women growing up in California.
Pinky Pinky made their UK debut last month, charming crowds at The Great Escape, Dot to Dot Festival and a London headline show, as well as UK and European dates supporting The Nude Party. They will return later this year, playing the following shows:
1st Oct – La Maroquinerie, Paris (FR) * 2nd Oct – Nosta, Opwijk (BE) * 3rd Oct – Molotow Sky Bar, Hamburg (DE) * 4th Oct – Musik + Frieden, Berlin (DE) * 5th Oct – Kulturclub schon schön, Mainz (DE) * 6th Oct – Bibelot, Dordrecht (NL) * 9th Oct – Paradiso Upstairs, Amsterdam (NL) * 10th Oct – Stroomhuis, Eindhoven (NL) * 11th Oct – The Dome, London (UK) * 12th Oct – Fairfield Social Club, Manchester (UK) * 13th Oct – Belgrave Music Hall, Leeds (UK) * 15th Oct – The Prince Albert, Brighton (UK) *
Pinky Pinky have good gut instincts. During an era of limitless distractions, societal pressures and sonic trends, the three best friends are focused on being happy and blissfully on the outside of all that noise. The trio grew up together in Los Angeles and there’s a shared understanding of what makes them all tick. Together with her punk cohorts Anastasia Sanchez (vocalist/drummer, 20), guitarist Isabelle Fields (19), and bassist Eva Chambers (19) have a clear understanding that Pinky Pinky’s modus operandi is in not overthinking their decisions.
“Turkey Dinner” is the most accurate representation of where Pinky Pinky is currently at live onstage and off it. They aimed to make a live-sounding record that didn’t feel too shiny in its production. As a result, the album is unpretentious, raw and unpredictably unconventional.
