Pink Turns Blue – “Not Even Trying” – Tainted
The new single from Pink Turns Blue couldn’t be more relevant. The band laments how good humankind is when it comes to destroying the planet without even trying, and that, if we keep on NOT EVEN TRYING to stop the process, the lurid visions portrayed in the video will just keep happening.
“When I travel the world, I encounter two types of people. Many are sad and void of hope that mankind is able to change. Others just don’t care or are sarcastic about just everything. I guess this makes me angry. I see all those toddlers with their lives before them, playing and laughing and inheriting a world in disarray just because of the greediness and irresponsibility of their parents. A call to try so much harder! Instead of using excuses for missing or inadequate action, mankind really has to get its shit together – now,” says Mic Jogwer.
From Germany, Pink Turns Blue took their name from a Husker Du song in 1985. Today Pink Turns Blue is a trio comprised of Mic Jogwer (vocals, guitar), Reubi Walter (bass, keyboards) and Paul Richter (drums). Tainted is an extremely hard-hitting album by a hard-hitting band of whose music we are in deep need.
