Pinsky - Losing Touch

Release Date: 07/05/11


Formed in 2007, Pinsky is one of New England's best kept secrets. Peter Vachon, Jeff Roberts, Andre Tranchemontagne and Mike Graton write punk-infused indie rock tunes with teeth. The band self-released their debut EP, Two for the Road in 2008. A year later, they recorded a two song EP (States/Only Ones) with Jay Maas of Defeater. For the past two years, the band has spent time sharpening their songwriting skills, drinking whiskey and tattooing themselves with old Movielife quotes. The result is their 2011 debut album, Losing Touch - which will be released on Sinking Ship Records.

They say you hold onto the music of your youth Ė and Pinsky has crafted an album that stands up alongside the venerable punk rock and melodic emo from the late 90s and early 00s (Braid, The Get Up Kids, Hot Rod Circuit). Losing Touch is a summer album for a generation that will be spending the next three months in the same dive bars they've inhabited all winter long. The melodies are born from equal parts stomach bile and heart. Instead of sappy love songs and petulant break-up tunes, Pinsky presents ten concise, diverse tracks that illustrate a sense of maturity (both in structure and substance). Uniting the album is a theme that in this day and age, when itís hard to tell if things are getting better, itís nice to have each other.

You can pre-order the album here.
