The Pink Slips
THE PINK SLIPS arrive with wondrously dark and gorgeous synth-pop, swirling in punk playfulness and danger. It’s a wall of sound, behind bare-naked confessionals, infused with biting social satire and calls to self-empowerment.
Led by Grace McKagan’s clever and powerful alter-ego, Grave, The Pink Slips are armed with all of the glamour and weapons of the past, ready to smash through the disillusionment of the future, while ensuring it’s a revolution we can dance to. It’s Ziggy Stardust, Alice Cooper, and CBGBs in spirit, while altogether modern in sound.
The Pink Slips are unafraid to embrace the poppy sheen of the solo Paul McCartney, the big choruses of Lady Gaga, and the boundary pushing energy of Marilyn Manson, all underscored with the urgent feminism of Bikini Kill. Songs like “Gimme,”“I’m Ready,” “Hello Heaven,” and “Danger” are an exciting mix of Blondie, Nico, The Kills, with a reverence for the primal fury of Iggy Pop and the transcendent harmony of David Bowie.
