If you’re not familiar with the catchy, noisy aggression that is PINKO, get familiar with their new record, You & You, out December 13 via Hex Records. You can hear it here now.
“A few of our influences are Drive Like Jehu, Unwound, and Brainiac. I’d say the original intent was always to play loud, angular, noisy stuff with ghosts of hooks coming out once in a while. We weren’t sure if people would like it, so we just settled on playing and seeing what panned out,” says guitarist/vocalist Guillermo Mendez. “We made ourselves sick making this record, but we’re really proud to put this on wax with the help of Hex Records and play these finished songs live.”
PINKO are a three-piece band from San Antonio, TX. They have been playing as a band since 2015 when guitarist/vocalist Guillermo Mendez was looking for a new drummer to fill in with his previous outfit, Sohns. They have recorded a self-released EP, as well as splits with Bummer, New Primals, and Exhalants.
